1 1/2 pound whole crab
3 tablespoons oil
4 cloves minced garlic
1 small sliced onion
1/4 cup fish sauce (nam pla)
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 tablespoon oriental sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 beaten egg
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves
2 green onions, cut into 1-inch lengths


Clean the crab by removing the shell from the body only. Disjoint the legs and crack the shell of the legs with a mallet. Rinse to remove small pieces of shell, drain and set aside.

Heat a wok or large skillet on medium-high heat. Add the oil, garlic and onion. Stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the cracked crab pieces and stir-fry for 2 minutes.

Add all remaining ingredients except the egg, cilantro and green onions. Cover the skillet and continue cooking on medium-high heat for another 3 minutes, or until the crab is cooked.

Add the egg and stir to combine thoroughly.

Remove to a serving dish and garnish with the cilantro and green onions.

REVIEW: 3 star recipe rating

Overall, this was good. However, the curry powder masked the flavor of the delicious fresh crab too much. We'd recommend starting with half the amount of curry powder called for, then adding more to taste if you wish. Very easy recipe and took only minutes to prepare.
