Chinese Steamed Crab with Scallions and Ginger

Updated: Apr 15, 2020

Steaming Crab with scallions and ginger is super easy to make. This is a method I’ve learned from my parents and this method of making the crab makes it very tasty. The ginger and scallions will take away any seafood taste and bring out the fresh taste in the crab. You’ll be amazed by how just a few ingredients bring out the fresh flavour of the crab.

1 x 2lb Fresh Crab, broken apart into sections 1/4 Cup or 30 grams Ginger, julienned 3 Scallions, (cut into 2-inch pieces - separate white part and green) 1 Thai Chili, deseeded and diced 1/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt or to taste
