Phuket Stir-fried Blue Crab with Black Pepper Recipe
Phoo Phad Prik Thai Dam
The world is just a finger tip away.
I would like to share with you my family cooking and recipes from Phuket, Thailand. These photos were taken by cell phone and then downloaded onto facebook. I called my niece Darunee Khruasanit in Phuket after seeing her food photography and asked for permission to show her photos and recipes on my blog. I would like to share this delicious dish from my home town Phuket where blue crab is very fresh and equally delicious. You can find blue crab in Seattle at Asian Markets such as Viet Wah and Uwajimaya.
You will need all the ingredients from the above picture.
4 blue crabs, 2 cloves garlic, 1 Anaheim chili pepper, 5 green onions and 1/2 onion
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
4 blue crabs, cleaned and cut in half
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 Anaheim, cut into large dices
1/2 onion, sliced
5 green onions, cut into 1 inch length
Here is the final delicious result.
I am planning to cook up this same dish with some local Dungeness crab next week. I can’t wait to savor this dish again. It is the contrast of flavors that excited me. I remember the flavor so well, the spicy black pepper flavor that contrasts with sweet crab and green onion. I am so close to my home land, and can imagine eating this black pepper blue crab on the beach~ I can feel the sea breeze right now; the one that would make a sweat on my forehead feel cool like air conditioning.© 2010 Pranee Khruasanit Halvorsen Love Thai cooking Pranee teachs Thai Cooking class in Seattle areas, her website is: I Love Thai cooking.com
