Preparing crab meat

  1. Steam flower crabs for 10 minutes on high-heat. Let cool until easy to handle.
  2. Carefully, extract meat from shells.

Preparing shells

  1. For the top shells, trim off the edges until smooth.
  2. Dust shells with flour.

Preparing crab filling

  1. Mix together cooked crab meat, shiitake mushrooms, yellow onion, ginger, sugar, salt, white pepper and egg yolk. Mix well.
  2. Add flour. Mix well.

Stuff crab

  1. Stuff crab filling into shell using fingers. Gently smooth out the surface.
  2. Cover filling with bread crumbs. Lightly press bread crumbs onto the filling. Make sure all areas are covered.
  3. Heat oil on high-heat. Sprinkle a pinch of bread crumbs into hot oil. If bread crumbs bubbling, the oil is hot enough for frying.
  4. Carefully place crab shell-side down into hot oil.
  5. Deep fry for 3 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Drain excess oil.
  7. Serve while still warm. Enjoy!
