Vampires And Crabs

What do vampires and crabs have in common?
Answer : they are killed or pierced through the heart....

Oh, before you go on, this post is not for weak and crab lovers.... please refrain from reading on..
Sorry, crabs....

I actually bought these crabs in the main market yesterday afternoon. Andy would be back for dinner so I was thinking why not cook something different for a change. So.... with some great help from Elin, I learn how to "murder" some crabs next time.... call me "cold blooded"... Gosh!

Okay... how to keep yourself from being "clawed"
we must not untie the crab... otherwise we get it instead
so... firstly, take a wooden chopstick..
and point it to the crab's heart... like this above....
and thennn...
"censored"

My Sifu.. (Mistress of Cookery)
She taught and showed me all the minute details...
how-to-do-it-right
where to wash, what to take out..
yes, sand-bag, now I know where it is...
and then.... with some squeezed ginger...
and some fried garlic...
the crabs were steamed for 10-15 minutes...
and...then....
they became like these....

freshly steamed crabs!

by the way annyone fainted?

  7. before you took their lives you should also let them swim swim around so that the sand and dirt can be removed from their body. That's what my grandma taught me. >.<
