Stir-fry Crab with Ginger and Scallion 姜葱蟹

I love crabs....I mean any type of crabs! Don't we all love eating fully fleshy crabs and sucking the creamy eggy ? I betcha you all are crab lover like me! Recently, I bought 1/2 dozen of Blue Crab when I was in Chinatown.I guess crabs season is here now! I make sure this time I get the female crabs,that mean full of creamy eggy crab which I love! Usually, I just steam the crabs :read here(lazy) but this time I decided to cook an authentic Chinese dish: Stir-fry Crab with Ginger and Scallion! Ingredients:

1/2 dozen blue crabs ( clean and cut into 2)

5 cloves garlic(sliced)

2-3 inch old ginger (peel and shredded)

2 stalks scallion

1 tbsp sugar

1 tsp salt

4 tbsp soy sauce

3-4 thai's chili(cut)

1 stalk cilantro

2 tbsp oil


1:Clean and cut each crab into 2 pieces.Be careful with her egg,do not remove or throw away,drain set aside.

2:Prepared wok at high heat with oil,add in ginger and garlic,fry until golden brown or fragrant.Add in crabs,soy sauce ,salt,sugar and thai's chili.Toss and fry ,cover with lid for another 5 minutes.Make sure all the parts is cook evenly.The crabs color should change to brown,that mean it's cooked.Toss scallion into the wok.

3:Adjust seasoning to your taste before remove crabs from heat.Garnish with cilantro .Serve warm with rice or as it's.
