Marketmans Chili Crabs

  • 4 kilos Alimango (mud crab) (live large,cleaned and cut into 4 to 6 pieces each), cut into 4 to 6 pieces each
  • unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons ginger chopped
  • 3 tablespoons onion
  • 2 tablespoons Garlic chopped
  • 4 to 8 siling labuyo (birds eye chili)
  • Shaoxing wine (Chinese rice wine)
  • 8 to 10 cups Tomato sauce
  • Chilli Sauce
  • sea salt
  • 1 Egg lightly-scrambled
  • 1 tablespoon Wansoy (Cilantro) plus extra for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Heat a very large pan over high heat and add butter. Add ginger and sauté for a minute or so. Then add onion and stir for another minute or two before finally adding garlic. Once this is cooked (2 to 3 minutes), add the crab and stir until the meat turns opaque and the crab is essentially half-cooked, roughly 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Add siling labuyo. Add a dash or two of Shaoxing rice wine and stir for a minute. Add tomato sauce, a bottle of the chilli sauce. Add sea salt to taste and stir to mix and let this cook for a few minutes longer until the crab is cooked through. Add scrambled egg to the pan and stir to thicken the sauce. Add wansuy, stir and turn off the heat. Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with chopped wansuy.
