Singapore Chilli Crab Recipe!

Authentic Singapore Chilli Crab Recipe from Tea For Tammi

It took me 20 years to pin down my mother’s Singapore Chilli Crab recipe – I spent years watching her in the kitchen, but never knew the actual quantities to anything until this week, when I pinned down the recipe for my weekly Periscope! It was a great time hanging out with my mum and learning a bit more about our national dish, and even getting exact instructions on how to quickly kill a live crab (because that’s the best freshness seal!).

But don’t worry if you’re not up for dispatching Mr. Crab yourself, you can always get a fishmonger to do it for you. Oh, and if you prefer, prawns are a great substitute for crabs too!

But wait, there’s more! Simply make this recipe, take a photo and post it to Everten’s Recipe of the Week on their Facebook page for your chance to win a $1,000 Wusthorf prize pack! You can find more details about the competition on Everten’s website. Remember to tag @TeaForTammi or Wusthof Australia on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, and we’ll share our favourites! We’ll also be Periscoping and sharing a recipe every week, so don’t worry if you’ve arrived here fashionably late to the party.

    This mud crab recipe looks AH-MAZING. Really wish I was there when you were making it to eaaaat it aaaaaall. I also really want to pinch one of those mantou out of the photos (and straight into a deep fryer). Because more fat 😉
