with Excutive Chef Roland Kaiser of Hilton Ha Noi Opera

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
  • 20ml ketchup sauce
  • 50ml water
  • 10ml soy sauce
  • 20ml sweet chilli sauce
  • 3ml rice vinegar
  • 10gr brown sugar
  • coriander, spring onion & lemon wedges as a garnish

 
Method:

  • Thoroughly clean the crabs, and cut them into 2 pieces.
  • Rinse the crab under running water to remove all the unwanted parts. Using the side of the cleaver, hit the legs and claws of the crabs to crack them.
  • Dip the crab pieces in some flour to fully coat them.
  • Heat up a large wok. Pour peanut oil and cook the crabs until the shell turns red, and remove aside.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and add more oil to the wok. Add the onion, ginger, garlic and chilli to cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, stirring.
  • 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.

Garnish:

  • Garnish the chilli crab with coriander, spring onion & lemon wedges.

Chef's tip: Best serve together with steamed white rice and sauted vegetables.
