Recipe for Steamed Fresh Crab In Curry Sauce


1 large whole fresh crab
6 slices ginger root
2 tablespoon dry sherry
3 spring onions or chinese
1 parsley
1/2 bell pepper, diced
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 cup stock
1 teaspoon ginger, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoon peanut oil
1 cornstarch paste


Make Sauce: Heat oil in medium-hot saucepan. Saute minced garlic until fragrant. Add curry powder. Stir over medium heat for about 1 minute - avoid burning powder. Add stock, salt, sugar and ginger; bring to boil; cook for 1 minute. Add bell pepper, which has been coarsely diced into 1/4" squares; stir in enough thin cornstarch paste to make a light sauce. As soon as sauce thickens, remove from heat and reserve. This sauce can be made up ahead and reheated just before serving.

Clean & Steam Crab: Pry off plate from crab in one piece. Separate legs with cleaver; wash all parts, cleaning out junk; cut soft inner sections of legs into manageable pieces. Carefully crack claws, keeping them intact. Reassemble crab on oval platter. Before putting on back, sprinkle meat with dry sherry; lay ginger on top; then put on back plate. Wash green onions, remove roots, and shred, greens and all, into 2" sections.

Bring water in steamer to rolling boil. Steam crab for about 15-20 minutes, depending on size. Meanwhile, reheat curry sauce (or keep hot in double boiler). Remove steamed crab from steamer; drain excess water. Lift back plate off crab; pour curry sauce over crab; sprinkle with onion shreds; return back plate. Serve.
