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.

You should try this recipe once you’e tried Stir Fry Crab with Salted Egg Yolk and Cheese Sauce, Steamed Crab Wrapped in Lotus Leaf with Chinese Black Bean Paste, Chilli, and Garlic Sauce, Thai Green Curry Crab, Rice Noodle in Rich & Spicy Crab Curry Soup, and Hot and Spicy Chilli Crab.

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.

mud crab giant large size indonesia papua

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

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.

Recipe Steamed Crab Wraped in Lotus Leaves with Spicy Fermented Black Bean, Chilli, ang Garlic Sauce

Steamed Crab in Spicy Black Bean, Garlic and Chilli Sauce basic recipe is similiar with my Steamed Sea Scallop with Black Bean Sauce and Steamed Grouper Fish with Tofu. The ingredients of black bean sauce for steaming this crab is fermented black bean paste, garlic, shallots, lemongrass, ginger, salt and pepper use for the sauce. 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. Watch over the saltiness level of the black bean paste since it could be very salty and it’s not necessary to add any salt anymore. 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.

Black Chanterelle mushrooms made it fancy even more.  Black Chanterelle mushrooms (Craterellus cornucopioides) is an edible mushroom, the horn of plenty, also known as black trumpet, trompette de la mort or trumpet of the dead. The idea of the name “trumpet of the dead” is that the growing mushrooms are being played as trumpets by people under the ground.

The dried black chanterelel mushroom’s flavour even improves than the fresh, but the texture is slightly tougher and more rubberry. That’s why i suggested that dried chanterelles reconstituted or soaked in water overnight to soften it. To retain more flavor, you should not discarded the soaking water and using it to the dish when they are cooked. Chanterelles mushroomare especially prized for their culinary value and are favorites of mushroom hunters.

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.
