Singaporean Fried Black Pepper Crabs

Crabs, I don't know them and they definitely do not know me. The reason is maybe I never went to Karachi or never to a proper sea food restaurant. 

I am ghareeb aka poor. It's hard to dine out. I'm just messing I prefer to cook and take it as a challenge in fact.

I was always fascinated from crabs and lobsters so I thought I should finally give them a try and see where it goes. 

TO BE VERY HONEST till the end of this recipe I did not even know how to eat them but this is my very first attempt to crabs. As most of the dishes I have made and uploaded here are just experiments.

Take a good look at this face because this face is about to make Singaporean Fried Black Pepper Crabs.

Heat 250 ml of oil in a pan on around 180°C. Cook crabs on both sides two minutes each. Cook them like it's your ex girlfriend's feelings.


After blue crabs turn to red, take them out and throw half of the oil out from the pan. THROW IT OUT!!!


Add pepper, ginger, garlic, half spring onions, half red chilies in the oil and fry for a minute till AROMATIC. YEAH! 

Aromatic is a very tough word but it has to do something with the smell.
