Let’s get started...

Cantonese Chilli Crab

We suggest serving with fried egg noodles or plain rice and cold cold beer.


Take the raw crabs and chop them up into 6 or 7 large pieces shell and all, being careful to remove the dead man’s fingers. Dust with corn flour.


Bring the oil to full temperature and deep fry the crab for 3 minutes before removing (note: the cornflower batter must not go brown.)


Take a wok (or similar) and add 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil and 1 tablespoon of sesame oil. Throw in the garlic and fry until light golden brown. Then add the ginger and chillies, stirring all the time for 3 or 4 minutes.


Add the fish or lobster stock, then the oyster sauce, 2 tablespoons of light soy sauce and a squeeze in the lemon juice. Bring to the boil.


Add the crab and stir fry until it takes on a gloopy sticky texture.


Throw on the top the spring onions.
