Me and Mr. Crab : A crab and mango salad recipe

From my previous post I've shared to you how an alive crab been bad to me, so now I will tell you how Mr. Crab turned into a yummy dish.

This stall caught my attention that made me bought a kilo of  fresh crabs.

 one of them is not so nice, hit my hands by its claws and then made me wounded.OUCH!
For revenge....I'm the one who cooked them LOL

Cauliflower,carrots, green bell pepper

butter,oyster sauce,onions and garlic
Here's how:
  • I boiled the crabs first for 10 minutes.
  • Using the butter I sauteed the chopped onion, garlic,cauliflower and carrots together and then added the boiled crabs.
  • I put 2 cups of crab's stock, a sachet of oyster sauce, a teaspoon of salt, a pinch of ground pepper, brown sugar and chili powder, covered  and simmered.
  • To make the sauce thick I dissolved 2 tablespoons of flour in a little water and mixed it to the sauce while stirring.
  • I put the green bell pepper, boiled it for 3 minutes and then FINITO. :D

I made my own version of Thai mango salad to pair it with the crab...

I just cut the green mango into strips.

Here's how:

I just added chopped string onions on top of mango strips.For the sauce/dressing I extracted 6 pieces of fresh calamansi (lime) mixed it with 2 tablespoons of patis (fish sauce) and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. I poured the sauce on it and then topped it with ground peanuts and a teaspoon of chili powder and Taaaadaaaa!
