Steamed Crab with Ginger and Egg

24 Jul

I have never cooked crabs before. But on Sunday, while buying fish at the wet market, I started asking the seller how to cook  crabs. He taught me to steam it with ginger and egg. Since the crabs were so fresh, steaming was the best way to get its taste.

Ingredients
1 crab, about 1lbs
1 inch ginger, thinly sliced
1 egg, beaten
2 bay leaves

Method
1. Clean the crab. Twist apart the legs and claws. Crack the legs and larger front claws with the back of the cleaver.
2. Put the ginger on the crab and pour in the egg.
3. Boil a pot of water with the bay leaves.
4. Steam the crab for 8-10mins.
5. Serve hot.
