INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb cocktail crab claws (raw or precooked) (450g)
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ lb cauliflower florets (225g)
  • 4 small sweet peppers (cut into rings)
  • 1 small green bell pepper (cut into strips)
  • 1 red chili (finely chopped)
  • 1 inch ginger (finely chopped)
  • 2 tbsp black beans (rinsed and minced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp cornstarch mixed with ¾ cup (180ml) water
  • Salt to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Bring a pot of water to boil. Place crab claws in a strainer and lower it into the boiling water. If crab claws are precooked, allow them to heat through for 1 to 2 minutes. If crab claws are raw, allow them to cook until shells turned red. Depending on the size, it should take between 2 to 5 minutes.
  • When crab claws are cooked, lift strainer from boiling water and allow it to drain. Arrange crab claws to one side on a large platter.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over medium high heat. Sear cauliflower florets for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and place to one side on a large platter. Do the same with sweet and green bell peppers.
