Chinese Buffet Style Crab

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by BETHANY T.

I've always loved that sweet, moist crab served in little dishes at Chinese Buffets. It tastes so simple, but I knew that it wasn't just plain, baked crabmeat, there was a secret for making it special. Well, I found out what it was! At first I thought, "is that it?" But yes, so simple, and oh so yummy!

This was good, but I would agree that I don't think it's quite what they serve at Chinese buffets, at least that I've had. I topped it with some breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese for some crunch and extra flavor. Served with rice and veggies to complete the meal.
