When one of her niece says she wants to eat crabs, our aunt will always say OK!
You should see the face of her 11 year old niece. Smiling ear to ear!
Last Sunday evening, our aunt bought crabs from the local wet market and cooked it for us.
She fed the 10 of us with 2 different kinds of crabs dishes with fried bee hoon.
Steamed Crabs with Tang Hoon. A different recipe this time and it's nice!
Tang Hoon really soaks up all the juices and essence of the crabs.
Oh it's so yummy!
Here's the chilli crabs!
If you are afraid to cook this at home because you dare not kill crabs, don't worry. Just ask your local fish monger to kill it and chop it up for you! It's usually FOC. Just cook it as soon as you get it home!
(Prima Taste cooking sauce if you are wondering.)
We had two big plates of it too!
We were just at Food Republic at Wisma Atria the other day and aunt said there was one tourist who was shocked that her order of two small crabs came up to nearly $70. (there is a reason why locals don't order crabs there. Locals just go to certain places to have crabs. Or cook them at home.)
We had our crabs with fried bee hoon. Our family are great bee hoon eaters!
The spicy version for the adults.
The non spicy version for the little kids. ;-)
Thanks aunt for cooking for us!
