Stir Fried Lemon Grass Crab
Stir fried lemon grass crabs is one of the dish that my mother use to cook for me to eat when I was little. This has always been my favorite and still is. My mother cook it much different from many of the Khmer and Thai people that cook in the restaurant. Her mother use to make these and she pass it on to my mother and now my mother is passing it to me to start a generation. And I’ll pass it on to my children when I have one. Therefore, I decided to share it. First of all you needed:
3 or 4 crabs. Chop them..
1 chopped lemon grass
4 pickled rhizome
One thinly cut galanga
Half a teaspoon turmeric powder
5 or 6 chopped lime leaves (Kaffir leaves)
Thinly cut the lemon grass, pickled rhizome, galanga, and lime leaves then grind it in the blender machine. Then add half a teaspoon of turmeric powder. Grind it till it is fully mixed like water. Heat the peanut and fry it till its golden brown.
First you grab a frying pan…of course…then you add oil and garlic. Inside of the crab you see their intestine and so on. You take their intestine stir fry it then add oyster sauce. After about 2-3 minute, add the mixture of lemon grass, pickled rhizome, glanga, lime leaves and turmeric powder from they blending machine into the frying pan. After that, add 3 table spoon of sugar and 2 tablespoon of salt. Mix it for 5 minute then add the crab in. Mix the grab until it is fully cook. You will see some of the crab juice developing then add peanut. After about 10 minute add onion. (Cut the onion too) Enjoy! :)
