Prepare a Christmas Feast with a King Crab

Yesterday when my husband and I were buying groceries in a supermarket, we noticed there was sale of king crab. Turkey is too big for us to have for Christmas, so a king crab sounds a good idea.

Today when I got up, the first thing I needed to do is to defreeze the king crab we bought. Then I disassembled it into several parts.

For the central body, I took the Shell off. Then picked the meat out. Heat a pan, melt a small piece of butter. Put the meat in. Sauté a bit. Add in 1 tablespoon flour. Quickly stir. Then add in 3-4 tablespoon milk. Stir slowly and evenly to let it reduce to white sauce. Put the crab meat white sauce into the shell. Sprinkle cheese. Put into oven ( 200 degree C, 8-10 mins) or till cheese melts.

Crab legs can be divided into three parts: thigh (fat end), middle parts and thin end parts.

For the fat thigh, I used them to cook spaghetti:

Heat a piece of butter in the pan. When melted, add in crab leg. Stir fry a bit. Then add in chopped garlic. Stir till aromatic. Pour in a little white wine. Simmer a little. Season with salt and black pepper. Add in chopped parsley and cooked spaghetti. Quickly stir evenly.

For the middle crab leg parts, I roast them with garlic butter. Put a small chunk of butter in a bowl. Add in chopped garlic, a little salt and pepper. Blend well. Cut half the shell off ( or even less). Then spread garlic butter onto meat. Put into oven. 180 degree C and 20 mins.

For the thin ends, I cut them into smaller pieces. Marinate with a little cooking wine and corn starch. Heat a little olive oil in the pan. Put the crab leg pieces in. Stir fry for 2-3 mins. Add in chopped ginger and spring onion. Quickly stir fry. Add in a little cooking wine, light soy sauce and oyster sauce. Quickly blend evenly and serve hot.

For the claws, I used them to cook light soup. Put crab claws, corn pieces, Chinese yam, mushroom, ginger shreds and spring onion pieces into a pot. Pour in 1 1/2 bowls of water. Turn to high heat. When water boils, put in salmon slices. Turn to middle heat and cook for 3 mins. Add in 1 tsp sweet cooking wine and salt. Cook for another minute.

And that’s it. Our Christmas feast made by a king crab.

Merry Christmas everyone!
