How to make it

  • Wash and clean the crabs well and cut each crab in half. Wash tausi three times with water then drain.
  • In a small bowl, mash minced garlic and tausi into a paste. Set aside.
  • In another small bowl, combine oyster sauce, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, 2 tsp Shaoxing wine, pinch of ground white pepper, cornstarch and ½ cup of broth. Mix well and set aside.
  • Heat a wok over high heat for 1 minute. Add the cooking oil and heat it as well.
  • Place the crabs and slices of ginger in hot oil and cook for 2 minutes, until the crabs are red and the meat white. Remove the crabs from the oil and set aside. Empty the oil into a bowl. Wipe off the wok and spatula with paper towels. Return 1 ½ tbsp of oil in a wok and heat over high heat for 20 seconds.
  • Add the garlic/tausi paste and stir. When the garlic turns light brown, add chopped chili and strips of bell pepper and stir. Add the pre-cooked crabs and stir well and cook for about 30 seconds.
  • Add 1 tbsp of Shaoxing wine, stir and cook for 1 minute. Add 3 tbsp of broth then stir and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Make a well in the center of the mixture. Stir the sauce mixture, pour into the crabs, stir well and cook for 1 ½ minutes. Add 2 tbsp of chopped green onions. Mix well.
  • When the sauce thickens and bubble, turn off the heat, transfer to a heated platter, sprinkle with remaining 1 tbsp chopped green onions on top.
