Since 2007, Humpback or Mouse Grouper is listed as vulnerable or high risk of endangerment in the wild on the IUCN Red List of  Threatened Species, because the species is naturally rare, so is sensitive to overharvesting due to its high value in the live food fish trade and to habitat degradation. Commercialy hatchery production is not intended for reintroduction, but instead for the aquarium trade, so does not result in an increase in the natural population or a decrease in demand as food. So, we should be responsible to not let our future generation only know mouse grouper from picture unless we stop eating mouse grouper.

Make sure you’ve got a “dry scallop” instead the ”wet scallop” for this recipe. Scallops which threated with sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP)  called “wet scallop” while the “dry scallops” didn’t.  STPP causes the scallops to absorb moisture prior to the freezing process, thereby getting a better price per unit of weight. It’s easy to diffrenciate the “dry” and “wet” scallop, “dry scallop” is usually got whitish creamy translucent color, while the “wet scallop” is usually got whitish opaque  color. Fresh scallops suit for every recipe, you can make Steamed Scallops with Garlic and Ginger Recipe, Steamed Sea Scallop with Black Bean Sauce and Served with Rice Glass Vermicelli, Roasted Garlic Pasta Spaghetti with Pan Seared Baby Scallop Recipe, or  Baked Scallop with melted Cheese And Herbs (Scallop Morney) Recipe.

Pan seared scallops with brown butter and herbs in this recipe got all savoury goodneess. The herbs infused brown butter for searing the Hokkaido scallops got nutty aromas with herbs burst of refreshing flavour. I love brown butter, no one could ever regret the brown butter in any dish, especially when it’s using for cooking seafood like my recently Roasted Spinny Lobster with Garlic Brown Butter Recipe. Making brown butter is a little bit tricky, you should know that brown butter made from regular butter that heated until the butter’s milk content solidified and browned, a little longer cooking made the brown butter turn into black burn butter.  To making the herbs brown butter, cut up the butter into pieces and place in a heavy bottom skillet. Melt the butter on medium low heat and swirl it goodly, allow the butter to foam up and recede. Watch carefully. After a few minutes, the milk solids will form and sink to the bottom. Once the milk solids begin to turn brown caramel-colored, the butter will have a lovely nutty aroma and then you need to add herbs and olive oil to slow the cooking process a little bit and prevent the brown butter got burn.  Add your patted dry Hokkaido to herbs brown  butter sauce.  To perfectly seared the scallops,  do not overfilled the skillet to let some space beetween the scallops to let the steam escape. Flip the scallops once after the bottom side of the Hokkaido scallops turn brown and crusty, then let the other side browned too. You want the inside of your seared Hokkaido scallops medium rare when you remove it from the pan, the remaining heat continue to cooking it untill medium done.

seared scallops with balsamic vinegar reduction mushrooms soy sauce recipe

I served my seared Hokkaido scallops with herbs brown butter with balsamic reduction sauce, but not a  regular balsamic reduction. I add infused the balsamic reduction with flavour of caramelized onion and deglazed with mushooms light soy sauce. I found  a small bottle of ready to use mushrooms infused light soy sauce for steaming fish in chinese grogeries. To made balsamic and mushrooms soy sauce reduction add a tablespoon of oil in a sauce pan, sautee chopped onion until caramelized, then pour a half cup of balsamic vinegar and a half cup of mushrooms infused soy sauce, bring it to boil over medium heat then add half teaspoonfull of sugar.. Once the sauce boil, turn down the heat so that boil reduces to a simmer. Stir occasionally and allow to simmer until the vinegar and the soy sauce has reduced by at least half (thin consistency reduction) or more (thick syrupy consistency). Never increase the heat to fasten the reduction process, unless you want to be left with a stiff, hardened candy mess. I like my balsamic reduction very thin, so i can mix it with the remaining herbs brown butter for searing the Hokkaido scallops.

Making oven roasted garlic recipe is so easy to do. Simply cut the tips end of the garlic bulp to made it a lot easier to extract after roasted, toss the garlic with olive oil and season it with salt and black pepper evenly, then lay them with the bottom side down in the oven tray. Use a big enough baking tray, so the garlic are not too crowded. You want room between them for the moisture to escape, which concentrates the garlic flavor. Bake for 30-45 minutes (depending of the garlic bulb size) in 482ºF (250ºC), or until the garlic are completely softened and wilted, and start to wrinkle and some of the them charred. The garlic bulb may take longer to roast, depending on the size and the ammount of your garlic. The oven roasted garlic will keep for about three days in the refrigerator and about 6 days if you packed it with oil, i also can be frozen for up to six months.

Lobster Ceviche Recipe with Cherry Tomatoes and Kaffir Limes. Ceviche, also called cebiche, or seviche a  dish made of fresh diced raw seafood that pickled or cured in a citrus juices with addition of chopped chillies, onions and among other seasoning. Ceviche is popular appetizer in Central and South America region and considered as Peru national herrittage dish. Ceviche is mostly made of raw fish fillet like tuna, salmon, Chilean seabass or other white flesh fishes, but it’s can also be substitude with any kind of seafood like shrimp, squid, scallops and also lobster tail meat. I’m such a fanatic fans of lobster, i’ve made French Style Lobster Thermidor Recipe, Roasted Lobster with Brown Butter, Garlic, Ginger and Soy Sauce Glaze Recipe, Chinese Style Lobster with Sweet and Sour Chili Sauce Recipe, Japanese Style Lobster Miso Soup Recipe, French Style Butter Poached Lobster with Fennel & HerbsItalian Style Spicy Lobster Pasta with Cherry Tomato, Chilli and Garlic Greens, and  Balinese Style Grilled Lobster with Spicy Chilli Sauce Recipe; none of the list of lobster recipe using raw lobster meat, i guess this lobster ceviche is worth to try.

Homemade Lobster Ceviche with Tricolor Cherry Tomatoes, Kaffir Limes Juice and Pulp and Cilantro Leaves

Lobster  ceviche  with cherry tomatoes recipe is pretty American style since i add some chillies, finely chopped onions and served it with corriander leaves. Instead of using cooked lobster like commonly lobster ceviche recipe on the internet, i just blanched my lobster on a boiling Homemade Bouquet Garni infused water. I’m not attemt to cooked the lobster, but i guess i had to do this since peeling lobster tail meat without prior blancing could be such  a big mess and not that easy to do, beside that, blanching could sterilized the lobster shells. To prevent the remaining blanching heat cooked the lobster meat, i dip the blanced lobster in a large ice bath to suddently lower the temperature and stop the cooking process, remember that warm uncooked meat is the best inviroment for bacteria to growth too.

Live Lobster Ceviche with Red, Green and Yello Cherry Tomatoes

Making lobster ceviche and any other uncooked raw seafood dish is sounds intimidating to almost amateur cook, not exception for myself. I guess it’s slightly challanging; but first, you should really know how to handle the raw lobster tail meat properly. The first and the key of the safe and also delicious lobster ceviche is the freshness of the lobster meat. I guess it’s preferred the live lobster rather than the frozen, but if you can access the live lobster at least choose the ‘sashimi grade’ which is usually vaccum packed frozen lobster tail meat in a gourmet store. Freshly cought lobster for making ceviche is quite bargaining, as long as you make sure it’s really fresh. Never even thought to use the died lobster in a traditional or even worst in a supermarket that probably laying there more than hours. Once you’ve got the lobster, you need to clean and wash all the equipments to making the lobster ceviche, including your hands. Keep all the ingredients in a cold temerature between 0° C to 4° C, which means refrigerate right after you cut the lobster meat. For savety reason, i didn’t recommend raw lobster ceviche for a pregnant woman because her fetus (unborn baby) are at risk if she eats raw or undercooked seafood, considering that raw seafoods are possibly and more likely contain parasites or bacteria than foods made from cooked seafood.

Live Spinny Lobster for Making Lobster Ceviche

I’m making my homemade lobster ceviche and cherry tomatoes with a relatively medium size spinny lobster weighed about 350 grams. I purchased the live spinny lobster from Iane Fish Market that located on Jl. Kebagusan dalam I no.42, Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta. Iane fish market is a trusted live seafood distributor that provide many kinds of seafood, including many kinds of lobster, slipper lobster, coral trout, mouse grouper, mud grouper and many more. One thing for sure, they provide it with much more  bargain price tag rather than fancy seafood restaurant. For the cherry tomatoes, i use tri color cherry tomatoes; green, red and yellow cherry tomatoes that quite pleasant for eyes. I didn’t sure if it’s from different species but i guess the green ones is the raw state of either of the red nor the yellow cherry tomatoes.

Asam Jungga (Thin Skin Kaffir Limes from North Sumatra)

To made my lobster ceviche special even more, i’m using local kaffir limes called jeruk junggaor asam jungga, an endemic Varieties of kaffir limes that grown in North Sumatra and you know what, i’m feeling so damn lucky since my causin flow it away with her from our Bataknese descent land. For the record, asam jungga or jeruk jungga is pretty damn pricey in Jakarta, especially for the bataknese people since authentic Arsik or Naniura using it. Jeruk jungga or asam jungga could be worth about IDR 7.000-15.000 (70¢- 1.50¢ USD) for each of it. The distict different of jeruk jungga and common kaffir limes is the thickness of the skin; jeruk jungga got much more thinner than kaffir limes. The limes pulp within the ceviche is a great touch too, bursting sourness when you blast the pulp out while chewing the succulent lobster meat.

Succulent and Sweet Raw Lobster Tail Meat Ceviche

The authentic lobster ceviche made of raw lobster tail meat, but i guess the term raw is not fully truth since the meat protein is denaturated with the additional of acid liquid which is lime juice.  Lime juice is  actually citric acid could break the bridge or chain of protein amino acid in the lobster meat and turn it out into opaque, just like a process of denaturation by heat or cooking. Beside that crappy chemistry, citric acid or low Ph liquid could kill several kind of bacteria and parisites, not all but i guess it’s fine because many people didn’t get died of it anyway. Traditionaly, lobster ceviche was marinated for about three to five hours, but i gess some restaurant just made it after the order comes. Lobster ceviche usually served with Homemade Crispy Tortilla  Chips or Homemade Toasted Bruchetta.

Homemade Salmon Gravlax

HOMEMADE SALMON GRAVLAX RECIPE. Gravlax is a raw salmon fillet that cured with salt, sugar, dill weed and  herbs that popular in nothern Europe countries. Gravlax is usually served as an appetizer, sliced thinly and served along  finely chopped dill weed and mustard sauce, either over somekind of toasted bread, biscuits, chips or even boiled potatoes. Gravlax derived from the Scandinavian word grav, which literally means “grave” (in Swedish, Norwegian, Danish), and lax (or laks), which means “salmon”, thus gravlax means “buried salmon”. In the ancient times, fisherman used to save their salmon catch by burried them in the salt-containing sand above the high-tide line.

Gravlax: Homemade Cured Salmon Fillet with Juniper Berries, Szechuan peppercorn and Dill Weed

Eversince i’ve cured my duck breast and venison loin and made myself Homemade Duck Prosciutto (Air Dry-Cured Duck Breast), and Homemade Bresaola di Cervo (Air Dry-Cured Venison Tenderloin), i’m obsessed with making homemade cured meat or charcuterie. Homemade version of gravlax is away cheaper than the gourmet deli store price tag. Making salmon gravlax is actualy effordless since you let the time doing it’s ‘drying’ by osmosis process. Beside, you can control all ingredients and adjust the taste according to your own personal licking. For example, i add szechuan peppercorn to my salmon gravlax to satisfied my asian descent taste buds and you won’t get that anywhere in the store. A splash or liquor on the salmon filet will made your homemade salmon gravlax lovely even more, i recommended citrusy liquor like citrus vodca or cointreau.

Homemade Gravlax Before Thinly Sliced and Served

When you made  your homemade salmon Gravlax, there’s a plenty of way of serving suggestion. You can served it with toasted bread like my Bruschetta with Venison Bresaola, Cherry Tomato, Avocado Mayonaise and Brazilian Nuts Pesto or with Crispy Spiced Tortilla Bread Recipe. Beside soft cheese and mustard sauce variant of dipping sauce will be suits, you can try Tomato and Mint Salsa Recipe, Roasted Pepper Sauce Recipe, Italian Salsa Verde Recipe, Balinese Sambal Matah (Raw Shallot and Chillies Spicy Salsa), Resep Sambal Dabu-Dabu Khas Manado (Manadonese Raw Chilli Salsa). If you want to, you could add your gravlax to your salad and drizle it with Mint-Chilli Mayonaise.

juniper berry recipe

Juniper Berries

Making homemade salmon gravlax is quite easy, even for an amateur like me. The salmon is “buried” in a dry mixture marinade of salt, sugar, juniper berries, szechuan peppercorn and dill weed. The salmon cured for a few days in the curing mixture. As you can see, the dry curing mixture later be liquidfied because the moisture content on the salmon dripping out and the curing mixture penetrated the salmon meat. No rocket science here, but the osmosis happen when high consentration seperated from the lower consentration by tissues or membrant,  which is the salmon fish flesh, the higher consentration will be dripped into the lower consentration until they got equally consentration. Salmon gravlax is done within the curing process without following smoking like my Homemade Tea Smoked Salmon Recipe. You can use any herb you like and/or add a wide variety of crushed spices to your cure, different kind of peppercorns, star anise, caraway or fennel seeds, but my favourite spice  for homemade salmon gravlax or any kind of my homemade charcuterie is szechuan peppercorn and also juniper berries.

homamade salmon gravlax recipe

Easy Homemade Salmon Gravlax Recipe

Preparing the homemade salmon gravlax seems so easy and quicky, but curing takes several days so plan ahead before you serving it at your party. Salt and sugar bring somekind of pleasant umami and  balanced flavour. If you made your gravlax made without sugar, it can easily become too dry and rubberry, and for sure it’s taste terribly salty. The ratio of salt and sugar used in gravlax recipes varies widely, due more to personal preference than food safety. As this recipe proves, large amounts of salt and sugar aren’t really necessary. Experiment and find your own favorite ratio of the two, keeping in mind that not enough salt will result in mushy, under-cured fish and too much (without any sugar to balance it out) will make the fish tough and super-salty.  Wll cured homemade gravlax should have a fresh but bold salmon flavor with some tingling spicy flavour of herbs and peppercorns. The texture will be slightly firmer than raw salmon, but should never be tough or chewy.

Rub and also brush throughly the fish upper cavity ribs area, below the fish back bone, there’s a blackish dark red organ which is actually the fish kidney that should be fully removed or your steamed fish gonna be muddy and fishy. Some people like to steamed the fish twice. Firstly, the fish was steamed until half done, and then the dripping liquid is discarded, after that  the rest of the ingredients added and the fish is steamed until done. I’ve never discard the liquid once i handle a live fish (except freshwater fish) because you just discarded the nutritional juice from the fish, what a waste.

The using of shark fin and abalone in Buddha Jump Over The Wall Soup implicated in destructive fishing practices, are controversial for both environmental and ethical reasons. Indonesia is one of the coutry that legaly the ethical shark finning practice, ethical shark finning (actually it’s not a cruelty shark finning) means the entire shark body must be landed first with the fins attacheed, which means shark finning with removing the shark’s fin and discarded the carcass to the ocean directly after catched is banned.

Homemade Buddha Jump Over The Wall Soup recipe

Making Buddha Jump Over The Wall Soup is actually easy, but i guess it’s require time and energy (LPG or Electric Power) effort  for waiting it done. If you using the dried ingredients, you should rehydrate the dried ingredients first before using it, started with Soaking and preparing dried sea cucumber and then followed by Soaking and preparing the dried abalone. Don’t forget to Deep frying, soaking and preparing the fish maw. Some ingredients need to be soaked hours or minutes before cooking, just counting your  estimated dinner time. One of the most important things is DO NOT DISCARD THE SOAKING LIQUID !!!, except the tasteless liquid for soaking sea cucumber  and shark’s fins. The soaking liquid of dried abalone, dried scallops, dried oyster and dried squid is tasty, make sure you save it for the soup. I guess it’s better be budgeting the ready to use products, either frozen or canned shark fin, sea cucumber and abalone if you don’t want to wasting your time to prepare it from scracth.

This is the basic kabayaki sauce recipe and the ratio used to be different for each licking, beside, whole cloves garlic, cinnamon, star anise and sliced ginger added when the kabayaki sauce is simmerred until thickened into half amount. You can purchased a quite pricey ready to use store brought kabayaki sauce that usually using molases instead of sugar  as a swetened agent, this made the store brought kabayaki sauce is not easily burn during the grilling process.

Homemade Sanma Kabayaki Recipe

Homemade sanma kabayaki recipe usually refers to a braised sanma in kabayaki-style soy sauce instead of broiled or grilled. The Sanma fillet is dipped in a cornstarch flour and then pan fried until the outside got a nice golden brown and crusted layer. Right after the pan is cleaned from the rest of the pan frying, the kabayaki style soy sauce is boiled and then the fried sanma fillet is dipped into the sauce and then simmerred until the sauce is thicken. Braised sanma kabayaki losen the smokey flavour, a keys of enjoying a delicious fatty sanma fish. The sauce is usually too thicken for my licking, it’s due to the dissolved corn starch for pan frying the sanma fillet in the kabayaki sauce. That’s why i choose the oven broiled sanma kabayaki or oven grilled sanma kabayaki, i love it even more if the barbeque charcoal grill is available, unfortunately the  densely populated area surrounded my sister’s residence in Jakarta won’t made it possible to make  smoke without a complain.

Oven Broiled Sanma Kabayaki Recipe

Grilling sanma kabayaki should not be rushed, take your time, brush as often as you like with the sauce, but since i use oven to broil the sanma kabayaki, i applied the sauce twice for every  5 minutes. I like to do it several times on the flesh side to make sure the skin is nice and crispy and plenty of the fat has rendered off if i using the berbeque grill. Just before serving,  glaze the flesh with the sauce as a final lacquering before cutting into bite sized pieces. That’s it, i told you it was easy. Just serve over a mound of tender Japanese rice and drizzled it with remaing kabayaki sauce over it. Some fancy Japanese restaurant even used to served the grillled sanma kabayaki with a tiny  charcoal grill pot in your table to make you easy to slightly heated it before you pop it into your mouth. I love sanma fish all the way, i like to Grilled Sanma Fish in Banana Leaf and served it with Spicy Chili & Miso Sauce.

Homemade Salmon Nugget

Homemade salmon nugget is an easy and healty snack. Homemade salmon nugget is much more cheaper than the store brought that loads with many preservatives, food coloring and also tons of mono sodium glutamat (MSG). Frozen salmon nugget with ‘no preservatives & additives’ label usually tagged pretty pricey, while the cheaper ones must be fulled of filler, either flour or another chemical agents. The cheapy store brought frozen salmon nugget is actually packed with lots of calories with only a little nutritional value, this provoked early age obesity.  Eversince almost toddler love nuggets all the way, my sister asked me to made nuggets for my twins niece and nephew  once i visiting her house in Jakarta. The frozen nuggets a quicky snack and also main dish that she could prepare before going to work. My sister said that my niece is pretty sick of chicken nugget, then i thought that i’m going to make salmon nuggets once i checked the freezer and found three pieces of salmon fillet.

Homemade Salmon Nugget, Soft and Bounchy Inside with Crispy Crusted Outside

Making salmon nugget recipe is actually easy, but quite an effort to following. There are several steps; making the nugget, breaded  and then deep frying. When you making salmon nugget as a finger food or apptizer at your party, trust me that all the efforts will be paid off once the juicy and meaty salmon nugget will be swifted as fast as snapping your finger. That’s why i used to made salmon nugget in a large quantity and freeze it in a portioning vaccum plastic bag. I used to baked or deep fry it in the morning  as a breakfast supper before going to my clinic.

Crispy and Crunchy Homemade Salmon Nugget

There are several method making salmon nugget, the simplest method is breaded chuncky salmon fillet just like salmon tempura, but i didn’t like it because the i can’t spiced the salmon goodly, beside my niece and nephew did’t like the flaky salmon meat texture.  They love the salmon nugget texture like a meatball, soft but bounchy. The salmon nugget batter used to steamed first until firm to make it easier to cut and breadede, but you can directly shaped the salmon nugget batter with two spoons and then rolled into the breadcrumbs. The unsteamed salmon nugget or sometimes called salmon cake is better be for direct consumption. The frozen raw salmon nugget batter is not cruncy but soggy once you deep fried it, beside  the inner side of the nugget possibly still raw.

You can replace the breadcrums with cornflakes, rolled oats or even thinly sliced almond or another nuts to made a salmon nugget variation. Another version is using finely chopped or grated veggies that mixed into the salmon nugget batter. I like to add grated carrot, cauliflower, broccoli and sometimes bell pepper, beside you can add cheese and any herbs & spice that you like.  Nothing more comforting than your homemade nugget since you can add a little of this and that to suits your own personal licking. One most important thing is you know exactly the ingredients inside yours salmon nugget.

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.

Female Mud Crab with Roe or Egg, note the visible grayish green tomaley !

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.

Luxurious ingredients deserved to be paired with my Homemade Superior Stock/Broth that made of  beef bone marrow, malay/kampung chicken, and mushrooms and conpoy soaking liquid. Actually, i used to made a superior stock with crumbled dried scallop/conpoy, but fot this recipe i let the scallop whole.

Conpoy is actually dried scallop that made of the adductor muscle of scallops or shell clams that preboiled and then dried with under the sun ray or electric oven. Once the liquid content reduced, the flavour is contentrated, that’s what made the smell of dried scallop or conpoy is pungent, oceanic and reminiscent of certain salt-cured meats. Dried scallop got a concentrated rich and umami  taste due to its high content of  amino acids, such as glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid that easily blown your taste buds.

Chinese Conpoy Porridge Recipe Dried Scallops Rice Congee

I’m using an kerang kampak (axe clams) dried scallop for this poriddge  recipe. This scallop also called kerang kapak in Indonesia or callo de hacha Scallops in Mexico. The shape and the size of the kerang kampak scallops is a sort of kidney. This scallop is much more bigger than common scallop, as you seen the comparison beetween the axe clams scallop with  the medium size common scallop on photograph above.The shell of kerang kampak could reach more than 30 cm and the size of the scallop (abductor muscle) could reach 10 cm. Since finding dried scallop is not that easy in Indonesia, i dried it for myself, beside i can make sure there’s no additive and also preservatives on my dried scallop.  The medium size of regular scallop on the second photograph cost me about 22 USD for only a 100 grams, pretty damn pricey!.
Soaking and Preparing Dry Scallops before Cooking

Soaking and Preparing Dry Scallops before Cooking

How to soaking and preparing dried scallop before cooking is another following step that actually a key for making a delicious porridge. I like to soaked the scallop in the fridge overnight, you can add some ginger and also rice wine on this step to reduce the fishy smells. Once the dried scallop is soften you can shredded it or cooked it whole. NEVER WASTE THE DRIED SCALLOP SOAKING LIQUID! make sure you retain the soaking water as it will be highly flavored and can be added to whatever you are cooking. For preparing the rice for making the porriddge, mix the rinsed rice with a bit of oil and salt before boiling it. The rice will be broken down very quickly and produce a very nice starchy texture.

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.

All the spice paste ingredients processed into a fine paste then chopped chili added to give a nice hot kicking flavour. 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.

Resep Kepiting Saus Tauco Hitam/ Tausi Bungkus Daun Teratai (Steamed Crab in Lotus Leaf with Spicy Chilli, Garlic and Black Bean Sauce Recipe)

Kepiting saus tauco hitam (tausi) bungkus daun teratai is steamed crab in lotus leaves with spicy fermented black bean or douci, chilli, and garlic in Bahasa Indonesia. I’m using a giant mud crab from Papua Island for this recipe. The gigantic crustacean was weighed about 1.4 Kg and the 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 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.

Finally, Thai basil are added just at the end of cooking for fragrance, but i love to add the lemon basil leaves within the spice paste too to enhanced the flavour.
