Stuffed Crabs 酿螃蟹 ~ MFF Terengganu #3

This is specially cooked for my Sam, Stuffed Crabs. He never tasted crab before or i should say they, all three of my sons never had crab before. The only seafood they have eaten are prawns and fish. They love prawns and fish, they can have fish everyday, no problem..:p I think i should introduce more seafood to them..
这道美味的酿螃蟹是特别煮给我的'贤'宝贝吃的. 相信吗? 我三个宝贝都没吃过螃蟹喂!!
他们超爱吃虾和鱼. 天天吃鱼都不会怕..:p  也幸好, 他们都没有敏感体制. 那就让他们吃吧!

~Delicious Stuffed Crabs (Ketam Sumbat) a popular dish found in Kemaman Terengganu. For those who love crab, you must try, try, try this. This is so good.  I know some of my friends who loves crab but lazy to do the peeling part, don't you have this same feeling??..heehee
 When Sam told me he wanted to eat crab, my hubby told me Sam wouldn't like the peeling part.  Yes i agreed this is Shawn's and Sam's first time taking crabs it may be quite messy to have the shell on. When i saw this Stuffed Crabs in Lena's blog i told Sam this is the best choice for them. All the goodies(flesh and eggs) of the crabs is picked out of the shell, mixed with carrot, onion, some coriander and water chestnut(i don't have water chestnut i used sengkuang(yam bean) instead and some seasonings. Not too much other ingredients is added  in Lena's recipe and i thought this is brilliant because in this way the sweetness and original taste of the crab is still maintain.

这是一道非常美味的酿螃蟹,是丁加奴的其中一个区'Kemaman/甘马挽'的特色. 不知道你是否有同感, 吃螃蟹? 很懒惰拔壳又会吃到手很脏. 想想
'贤'宝贝和哥哥是第一次吃螃蟹, 连壳吃真的回很麻烦哦! 当我看见Lena的这道'酿螃蟹'我就知道这道就是宝贝要的那道螃蟹餐. 做了,吃了这道'酿螃蟹' 真的很棒. ho chiak!! 
螃蟹的肉和蛋被取出,加入红罗卜丁, 马蹄丁, 西苣丁,蛋和调味料就好了. 简单的配料带出

 I was lucky, I can get these crabs when i went to the fishmonger. We don't always see flower crabs when there is not in the season. The fishmonger told me sometimes can't even see a single flower crabs in months. I bought 7 medium size of these flower crabs, that cost me Rm7 and 1 kilo is Rm10. Its cheaper than the Mud crabs, they are Rm22 per kilo. I chose all 7 female crabs. Want to know how to tell a male crab from a female crab? The below picture is a female crab. Look at the abdomen it is semi round. I can't show you the male but i can tell you it has a narrow and triangular abdomen.

我还蛮幸运,到鱼档能买到花蟹. 选了7支母螃蟹. 花蟹也有季节的, 买蟹的老板说不常有这花蟹的. 有时几个月都没有货噢! 7支我付了RM7, 而1公斤是RM10. 
还是比黑的河蟹便宜的多. 河蟹是1公斤RM22. 
想不想知道如何分别雄蟹性和雌性呢? 上面的就是雌的, 它的低面有一片半圆的盖而雄的就是三角长尖形的盖.

First clean and boiled the crabs for 5 minutes....首先把蟹洗干净再热水中煮5分钟.

Take them and pick the flesh out the shell...把蟹捞起,去壳取出蟹肉,备用

Get ready all the stuffing ingredients and mixed well. Dust the crab shell with some flour before stuffed in the filling.
把酿料拌均匀.  在把蟹壳洒上少许的粉

Stuffed in a generous amount of filling into each crab shell and pat light to secure the stuffing. 
把酿料,酿进蟹壳, 再轻按紧. 

Dust the stuffing top with a little flour just before deep fry.

Shark Fin Dumpling ~鱼翅饺

This Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow), is one of my favorite dumpling. Although it is named Shark Fin Dumpling, but they contain no actual shark fin in it. Some say the look and shape of the dumpling does look like shark fin and other do include in imitation shark fin, though. I am lucky to have spotted this long hibernating in the book shelf chinese dim sum book ‘香港地道小吃’ translated as 'Hong Kong Authentic Tapas' Well, Do, you find this look like Shark's Fin?? 看看形状像不像鱼翅呢??  Filling for the ingredients are prawn, mince meat, carrot, yam bean and black fungus. Get ready the filling and the wanton wrappers. This is the parade of my Shark's Fin dumpling ... lol Homemade parchment paper liner. Arrange them neatly into the bamboo steamer. HOT! HOT! From the steamer!! Loaded with filling ..YUM! ENJOY~ Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow) (Scallop dumpling /Cilantro dumpling - depends which filling you using) Recipe adapted from  ‘香港地
