Every now and then, I will show my sadistic streak…by cooking. I often show it when I get a good deal… like this…I got this crab for RM5 each (About USD2). Cheap, don’t you think? I bought 4 of them, so that’s RM20 (About USD8)
I bought it when it was still alive, and got the seller to tie it up for me. I asked the fishmonger to kill it for me, but that feller was a part-timer, so he did not know how to kill the crabs. I ended up freezing it up in the fridge to kill it cuz I don’t know how to kill a crab either. Yeah, I know. It’s cruel to let the crab die slowly like that, but don’t worry. I’m sure they’re all in crab-heaven now.
After scrubbing them clean, I steamed up two of the crabs.
And made sweet and spicy crabs out of the other two. For RM20, I think it’s quite a good deal, especially when you get to watch pornography later on.
Yeah, eating crabs is like having a food orgy… so much bondage, torture, sucking, fondling,digging, fingering, slurping, licking… and more sucking (the crab, that is) involved. Pretty arousing and rather sexy, I must say.
Neway, here’s the recipe for the sweet and spicy crab:
3 clove of crushed garlic
4 tablespoon of tomato sauce
2 tablespoon of chilli paste
1 tablespoon of light soya sauce
1 teaspoon of dark soya sauce
1 teaspoon of sugar
3 cups of water
3 tablespoon of cooking oil
SautÃ© the crushed garlic with all the sauce til fragrant. Then transfer the crabs into a huge pot. When the sauce is done, pour it into the pot along with 3 cups of water or more, and cook until crabs are cooked and the sauce thickens.
Cleffairy: I wonder how much these will cost in the restaurants?
