This next instalment of my seafood odyssey brings me to this healthy snow crab recipe. These crabs are caught from the unforgiving Icy corridors in the North Pacific and Atlantic oceans. I became fascinated with this clawed delicacy after watching The Hunt for Snow Crab: Deadliest Catch on The Discovery Channel.
This is an ideal dish for the cold winter days, to warm you up and give you that extra spring in your step. Snow crab legs are often sold ready cooked so very little preparation is required. I hope you enjoy and share this dish with your family and loved ones.
- Snow Crab legs x 2
- A small bunch of coriander
- 2 celery sticks
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp dark soya sauce
- Fresh ginger
- Red chili flakes – optional
- White pepper powder
Thoroughly clean and wash the snow crab legs, also at this point it would be a good idea to score the legs with a sharp knife so that later we can easily remove the delicious white meat. Please take care when doing this.
Stock – In a large pan add 3 pints of water, to that add the stalks from half a bunch of coriander and 2 celery sticks cut into small pieces. Bring the stock to boil and allow to simmer until this has been reduced by a third, leaving you with around 2 pints of stock. Remove the stalks and celery sticks.
Season the stock with salt and white pepper to taste.
Add the prepared snow crab to the stock and allow to simmer on a very low heat for around 5 mins. This all allow the stock to infuse the flavour of the snow crab.
Remove the stock from the heat and carefully remove the crab legs and allow to cool so that we can remove all the white meat. It is now time to put the finishing touches to this dish.
Optional – if you like a bit of a kick then add a pinch of chili flakes to the stock
Add one tablespoon of soya sauce to the stock
In a small frying pan heat the sesame oil and fry the ginger for around 1 mins.
Add the fried ginger and oil to the stock.
Add the snow crab meat.
Ready to Serve and enjoy! Don’t forget to garnish the dish with a sprig of coriander.
