As a Fujianese, I love crabs so much and my family eats a lot of crabs each year. Now it is the season for crab. Steam will be the easiest way to cook them, but I prefer them with more flavor, so this ginger and scallion crab is my favor.
Half dozen live crabs
5 slices ginger (shredded)
4 whole scallion (shredded)
1/4 cup corn starch
Open up crabs’ shells, then cut them into halves, clean them.
Add a few pinches of salt, add corn starch and make sure they are all thinly coated.
Deep fry crabs in hot oil for about 4 minutes ( adjust the cooking time depend on the size of the crabs)
Leave a little bit of oil in the cooking pan, add ginger and scallion and stir fry for 2 minutes.
Add the fried crabs, 1/3 tsp white pepper, 1/3 tsp black pepper, and one tbsp cooking wine and mix well.
