Recipe Butter Garlic Baked Crab with Lime, Bacon, Herbs and Serve with Crab Gravy

Simple butter garlic baked crab recipe is a kinda runaway dish once you’ve got bored of spicy and kicking dish with a lot of spices and quite an effort to made it. My mom used to bake dunguness or blue swimmer crab once it’s on season, but in a very simple seasoning. My mom seasoned the blue crab with salt and lemon or lime juice, just as simple as that, nothing more added into it. Right after my mom popped out the baked crab, we gathered to enjoy it with spicy chilli sauce or a mixture of chopped birds eye chillies and kecap manis or Indonesian sweet soy sauce.

Baked crab dripping for making crab gravy

The crab gravy is another improvised recipe because i can’t discard the juice that dripped out from the baked crab. I think this would be a nice dipping for the succulent and sweet baked crab meat. I add some roux to make the crab gravy a little bit thicker, then a pinch of the salt and freshly grounded peppercorn added to adjust the taste. This crab gravy is superb even more since i’m browned the butter before i added some flour to made the roux.

Crabby looks: a face that only a mother could love!

I’m using 1.6 kg mud crab from Papua Island, Indonesia.  The gigantic crustacean claw is almost as big as my palm (i’m 5’11” or 180 cm heigh and weighed 95 kg or 190 pounds). This male mud crab is pretty big and four of us who joining the dinner got our stomatch fullfilled within it. The verdict of  this pricey gigantic male mud crab meat is quite good, the meat is perfectly cooked, succulent with  stringy flesh.  The flavour is sweet and  milder than the smaller crab that i’m used to cook previously, then the crab gravy pairing idea quite works this time. I guess if you craving the best texture and flavour of mud crab, i recommend mud crab weighed about 700 gr to 1.2 kg from my experience

Sweet, Succulent and Stringy Female Mud Crab Meat with Salted Egg Yolk and Cheese Sauce

This salted egg yolk and cheese sauce crab is using a female mud crab with roe. Even the crab roe or egg is not as full as the crab that i’m using for my Thai Green Curry Crab (Hot and Spicy Green Chilli Curried Mud Crab with Lemon Basil Leaves). The meat of this crab is much more sweeter and flaky than the full egg; i learn my lesson; you can have all what you want in one crab. The crab seller told me it’s all the matter of choice, either the meat or the roe. Virgin female crab got the most sweeter and stringy meat and the meat quality is decreased over the amount of roe on it.

Crab plus salted egg and cheese is a dish that you should had only before you’ve got 30 years old. It’s too bad the that i had to tell you that the cholesterol and calories level is too damn high for elderly.Cost you more than  30 minutes on a treadmill for a single crab than. But, you can reduce the calories with either boiled or steamed the crab instead of deep fried it. Salted egg and curry leaves is the list you should had for the  authentic version, i guess it’s available on asian groceries nearby your place. The salted egg yolk is available either raw or boiled, i suggest you to buy the raw and boiled for yourself because it’s much morore fresh then. If you can resist not tho eat the salted egg white, you can diced it and add it as a garnish like what i’ve done.

Recipe Steamed Crab in Lotus Leaf Wrap with Spicy Chilli, Garlic and Black Bean Sauce

Steamed Crab Wrapped in Lotus Leaves with Fermented Black Bean Paste is actually inspired by Lo Mai Gai dimsum. Lo mai gai is actually steamed sticky or glutinous rice with chicken stuffing in lotus leaf wrap. The sticky or glutinous rice is pre-steamed or preboiled before wrapped in lotus leaf and steamed. General stuffing for lo mai gai is chicken, pork, chinese sausage or lap cheong, mushrooms, and finely chopped dried shrimp. That’s why it’s common preparation when people add cooked glutinous rice or pulut (malay), or ketan (bahasa)  within the steamed crab. The glutinous rice absorb the crab natural juice dripping when the crab is steamed in lotus leaf wrapped and it makes the natural crab flavour infused on it, but i prefer to served this steamed crab with steamed buns or mantou.

Besides, you can enrich the flavour the black bean paste with dried shrimp, dried scallop and other savoury and umami dried seafood ingredients.

This black bean recipe is suits as a dressing  for rice porridge, steamed eeg, tofu, or even aubergines. Black bean sauce is actually made of salted and fermented black bean called doucitausi or tauco hitam in Bahasa. Black bean paste is ready to use, it’s available in a glass jar on most asian groceries in your town, my recommended  favourite  fermented black bean paste is Lee Kum Kee Brand.

The verdict of  this pricey gigantic male mud crab meat is much more sweet and succulent compared to female mud crab with roe for my Thai Green Curry. Even my sister consider that the amount of the black bean sauce is not enough (notes: she eat almost all of  the steamed buns), i guess i’m doing it to present the natural sweetness of the crab meat.

Thai Green Curry Crab (Hot and Spicy Green Chilli Curried Mud Crab with Lemon Basil Leaves)

Mud Crab in Thai Gren Curry is one of my all time favourite dish because this thick creamy curry got a burst of flavour. Thai Green curry (Thai: แกงเขียวหวาน, RTGS: kaeng khiao wan, IPA: [kɛːŋ kʰjǎw wǎːn], literally sweet green curry) is an savuory curry originally from Thai cuisine. The velvety  “green” curry color derives from the color of processed thai lemon basil (daun kemangi) and green chillies. The “sweet” in the Thai language refers to the nice green color of it and nothing related with the taste. The additoon of  coconut milk made the curry broth got mild creamy green color.

Crispy Soft Shell Crab with Salted Egg Battered Recipe

Soft shell crab with salted egg yolk batter recipe is a seasonal dish since you can get it fresh all the year, but frozen. Soft-shell crab is  molted crab that harvested when the  new  crab exoskeleton (shell) and are still soft. It means almost of the entire animal can be eaten, rather than having to shell the animal to reach the meat. Since the soft shell crab  used rather small size crab, it made the soft shell crab double or more price-value compared to ordinary ones. Crab shell periodically becomes soft during natural molting process and it happens in a short period, thats why the fisherman should harvest it because delay period make the crab shell hardens back quickly.

Soft Shell Crab, Kepiting Cangkang Lunak,Kepiting Soka/Lemburi

Common method to profoked the crab molting process, fisherman usually mutilated the crab claws and all the walking leg. The swimmer leg is left behind to keep the crab alive. This cruelt method is still applied nowdays but some fisherman used the humanely molting process with crab molting enzim from spinach extract found by Prof.Yushinta Fujaya, a Indonesian professor from Hasanuddin University. The application of spinach extract can induce molting process in crabs, thus helps the crab farmers to produce soft shelled mud crabs simultaneously on desirable schedule.

Live Blue Crab Made the Laksa Had a Very Kick’in and Superior Crabby Broth

I was  so lucky to found live blue crab at Grand Lucky Supermarket in Jakarta (nearby Pacific Place Mall) and it’s not tagged as silly expensive as a seafood restauran. The live blue crab cost me about 9.99 USD for a kilo and i brought home about one and a half kilos. No more pale canned crab meat that cost me about 2.85 USD for 125 gr drained crab meat weight. Foraging over a gourmet store in Jakarta driven me to Kem Chick Supermarket and i found a very small bundle of daun laksa or daun kesum or laksa leaves for about 0.5 USD. Daun laksa had a stong aromatic aromas and pleasant spicy and a little bit tangy after taste. but since i using live blue crab for this recipe, i use only a pinch. I think daun laksa is more suits with asam or sour laksa instead of curry laksa for my personal licking.
