  • 1 whole cooked crab, about 1kg
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Thumb-sized ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 red chillies, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons tomato ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • A handful of coriander leaves, roughly chopped
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • Rice or steamed bad buns, to serve


  • Chop the claws and crack the back shell but do not remove any meat from it.

  • Heat a wok or large frying pan on high heat.

  • Once the wok is properly heating up, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. The oil is necessary to add flavour and keep the crab moist.

  • Add the garlic, ginger and chopped red chilli.

  • When everything is fragrant and nicely golden, add the crab.

  • Add the tomato ketchup, soy sauce and stir-fry for another 2 minutes.

  • Taste the sauce and add the salt if necessary until it is slightly salty.

  • Turn off the heat and mix in the coriander, spring onions and the sliced red chilli.

  • Serving Suggestions: Serve the chilli crab with tortillas, crackers, chips or wraps.
