Recipe Steamed Blue Crab with Green Chilli Sauce

Look at the orange blue crab roe, so delicacy…

This baby had a very succulent, sweet and tasty flesh compares to regular mud crab thats why like it much more than mud crab. I used to  steam the blue crab with minim additional seasoning, just soy sauce, lime juice, and chopped bird eye cillies. But today i seasoned the blue crab with saus cabe hijau or green chillie sauce. Green chilli sauce is considered as Indonesia or Thailand sauce, u an easily find this kind of sauce in both country and it goes perfectly blend with any kind of seafood.
