Sautéed Dungeness Crab

Crabs are very expensive to buy lately, but when I have a craving, it is what ever it takes.

Ingredients: 2 dungeness crabs, 3 tbs cooking oil, 1 tbs minced garlic, 1 tsp scallion, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp ground white pepper

  • Clean crabs. Pull off crabs' top shells and the triangular shaped shell on the bottom, rinse well.
  • Cut crabs in half.
  • Heat 2tbs of cooking oil in a wok and fry crabs over high heat for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the crab and drain well.
  • With the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in the wok, stir fry the minced garlic until lightly golden.
  • Return crabs to wok and stir fry for another five minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients and stir fry for a few more minutes until crabs are well-coated in sauce.
  • Remove from heat and serve.
