Since its crab season i thought i'd post some crab recipes. this is one of my favorite ways to make crab when i am sick of just lemon and drawn butter. I actually like tamarind crab and salt and pepper crab better but my mom makes it so i dont really know the recipe....i just let her do it.

Crustacean-inspired Garlic Noodles Recipe


1 lb fresh noodles
4 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic (pounded)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 1/2 teaspoons chicken bouillon powder
2 1/2 teaspoons oyster sauce
5 teaspoons grated parmesan cheese


Rince the noodles with cold water and set aside. Heat up a pot of water and let it boil. Boil the noodles in the hot water until they are done, drain the water, and set aside to cool down the noodles.

In a pan, saute the garlic with the olive oil in medium heat. The purpose is to infuse the olive oil with garlicky flavor. Discard the garlic and then add in 4 tablespoons of butter and turn the heat to low. Add in the chicken bouillon powder, garlic powder, oyster sauce and blend well. Set aside to let it cool.

Once the garlic mixture is cool and the noodles are cool at room temperature, pour the garlic mixture over the noodles and toss them together to blend well. Add in the grated parmesan cheese, toss well, and serve immediately.

Crustacean-inspired Roasted Crab Recipe


1 Dungeness Crab (about 2 lbs)
1 stick unsalted butter/8 tablespoons
6-8 cloves garlic (chopped coarsely)
1 small onion finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon powder (optional)
2 teaspoons black pepper (cracked using a mortar and pestle)
1/4 teaspoon sugar


Clean and chop the crab into small pieces. Heat up the butter in a wok (between medium to low heat) and saute the garlic and onion until aromatic, but not brown. Add in the black peppers, red chili flakes, chicken bouillon powder, and then add in the crab and stir well. Add in the sugar and cook the crab until half done.

Dish out and bake it in the oven at 350 degree F for 25-30 minutes. Serve hot with garlic noodles.
