Why So Crabby

Jeanie says KAYA!

Crab Maritess is one of our favorite dishes so when Gracie posted this challenge, it was not difficult to choose a dish to feature in my LO. The journalling of the recipe and notes is hidden in the tab I created. [ETA] I also created a packagign I can put in this dish that I chose.


4 female crabs (engorged with aligue)
1 cup of Olive Oil
Lee Kum Kee Chili Garlic Sauce
3 stalks Lemon Grass (I used only the 1st 5 inches from the base) chopped
Kutsay for Garnishing


Stab the crabs. In a food processor put olive oil and garlic. Blend.
Heat olive oil in a wok. Stir fry chopped lemon grass.
Add olive oil- garlic mixture. Saute crabs. Add chili garlic sauce
I actually transferred the crabs in a baking dish and continued cooking it in a microwave.
Clean up the wok by wilting kutsay. To serve put the crabs on top of stir fried kutsay.

Journaling: This is definitely one of our all-time favorite dishes.
