After buying crabs, you wash them. A brush can be used to clean dirt in the corners. Using the sharp end of the knife, pierce the position under the crab’s bib so that the crab can’t move and crawl. Next, use scissors to separate the shell from the body. Cut the crab body into 4 pieces. Our crab legs are also smashed so that the meat can absorb the spices.
Marinate crabs with spices: seasoning, pepper, main noodles, salt in the ratio: 1:1:1/2. Next, mix together 10 grams of minced shallot and 10 grams of minced garlic. Marinate crabs for about 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, when the crab meat has absorbed the spices, we proceed to fry the crabs. Put the crab in the deep-fried dough so that the batter covers the entire crab meat (except for the crab legs). Next, put the crab in a pan of hot oil and deep-fry it. Flip both sides to cook evenly. Then, remove the crab to a plate lined with greaseproof paper.
We put tamarind in a bowl of hot water. Mash tamarind for about 2 minutes. When the tamarind juice thickens, we remove the seeds.
Put the minced shallot, garlic, lemongrass and ginger in a frying pan. Pour 200ml of boiling water into tamarind and bring to a boil. Add 5 tablespoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of MSG, and 1 teaspoon of delicious fish sauce. Bring to a boil and add minced chili to taste. Dissolve 15 grams of cornstarch with water. Slowly pour in the tamarind sauce, stirring to thicken the sauce.
Put the crab in the boiling sauce pan, stir well so that the sauce evenly covers the crab. Put the crab on a plate, decorate with vegetables to make it beautiful.
As can be seen, the dish of fried sea crab with tamarind is very easy to make, the ingredients are extremely easy to find. The sour and spicy taste of the sauce, mixed with the sweetness of the crab market, creates a super delicious product that everyone will love. This is really a dish you should add to the menu of the whole family to “change the wind”.
