Crab is a nutritious dish which is full of calcium and protein. It will be more delicious when you try it with a bit of chilli. This autumn, Executive Chef at Hilton Ha Noi Opera titillates your taste buds with his fantastic recipe of chilli crab.

Ingredients: serve 2

  • 2 crabs (400gr)
  • 30gram plain flour
  • 12ml peanut oil
  • 30gr onion, chopped finely
  • 30gr ginger, grated
  • 10gr garlic, chopped
  • 10gr red chilies, chopped

  • 50ml water
  • 10ml soy sauce

  • 10gr brown sugar
  • coriander, spring onion & lemon wedges as a garnish

 
Method:

  • Add the ketchup, water, chilli sauce, soy sauce, sugar and vinegar.
  • Bring to boil and simmer for a further 15 minutes.
  • Add back the crabs and simmer in the sauce until the meat becomes white.
