Crispy Fried Crab Recipe

Ingredients :

1 kg live crabs

1 teaspoon garlic, crushed

1 egg, beaten lightly

1 red chili, sliced finely

1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

Salt to taste

Cooking oil for deep-frying

 

Seasoning mix

4 tablespoons plain flour

3 teaspoons caster sugar

4 tablespoons rice flour

1 teaspoon ground white pepper

 

Method :

Scrub and clean the crab thoroughly. Pull back the apron from the underbelly and snap off. Remove the legs and claws. Pull the body apart and remove the feathery gills and internal organs.  Using a cleaver, chop the body into 4 pieces. Crack the claws with a good hit with the back of the cleaver. Combine the egg with the chili , garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Put the crab pieces in the mixture, cover and refrigerate overnight.

 

To make Seasoning Mix : Sift all the seasoning ingredients together on a large plate. Dip all the crab segments in the seasoning and dust off excess. Heat the oil in a wok and deep-fry the claws for 8 minutes, and the body portions for 4 minutes and the legs for 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve.
