Heaven from a shell!

I have been walking past these giant crab legs at my local fish dealer now for a year.

They never really seem that tempting to me, but the other day he gave me some to try out.

So what to make? Of course, spicy chili crab!

Serves 4

1 red chili, seeds removed

3 garlic cloves

1/2 lemon grass

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 crab legs, cut into pieces

juice of 1 lemon


fresh cilantro

  1. Finely chop/mince together chili, garlic and lemon grass.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan/wok and add the mixture, fry for 1 minute.
  3. Add the crab, fry until it's cooked through, add lemon juice and salt.
  4. Place on a platter and top with cilantro.
