Caranguejo bafado


Boiled crab (literally, stifled crab)

Simple boiled crabs

Caranguejo Bafado from “Guilly” Canavarro Remedios

  • 12 good sized Shanghai crabs
  • 6 spring onions
  • ¼ – ½ cup ló chiu
  • 2-cm ginger *

* This amount is a guess; the quantity was recorded as “2 pieces ginger $ size each”.

Wash crabs well in cold water, brushing the stomach well. Put them in layers in a large pan with their backs up. Put on the lid so that they cannot creep out.

Add ló chiu, ginger and spring onions and boil for 20 to 30 minutes or till quite red.
