Serves: 8
  • 1 cup crab meat from cooked crabs
  • 1 large potato cubed
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium onion minced
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • 1 cup canola oil
  1. In a pan, put 2 tbsp. oil and sauté garlic and onion.
  2. Then, add cubed potato, cook for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add the cooked crabmeat and mix lightly to prevent crabmeat from breaking too much.
  4. Season with salt and ground pepper.
  5. Take out of the pan, and strain any excess oil or juices. Set aside in a bowl, let it cool.
  6. Once cooled, mix the beaten eggs in the bowl.
  7. Stuff each crab shell with the mixture.
  8. Put 1 cup of oil in a pan, fry the crab shell-side down first. Using a spoon pour some oil on top of the crab to slowly cook the stuffing.
  9. Then, turn it over to cook and brown the stuffed side.
  10. When cooked, remove from heat. Put on paper towels with stuffed side down to drain excess oil. Serve while still warm. Enjoy!
This is made from scratch by steaming crabs first, then cooking the stuffing or filling.
You can make it from store bought crab meat too.
