  • This sounds like a huge recipe, but because fish cooking time is not long, your main work is cracking and extracting meat from crab legs and claws.

  • Cut fish into 4 pieces, place fish in an oven proof baking dish or pan. Place 2 slices of ginger on each piece. Pour soy and hoisin over fish and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • Method for onion and ginger crab with egg sauce.
  • You can leave the crab in shells for time if preferred, I remove the meat from all but 2 claws for ease of eating. It can be messy trying to crack shells once mixed with sauce. Also reserve a few green onions to sprinkle over the top.
  • Remove crab meat from legs and claws, save 2 claws to garnish plate.

  • Beat egg in a bowl and spoon 3-4 tablespoons of sauce into the egg. Add one at a time and mix, this stops the egg from scrambling when added. Pour egg mixture slowly into pan and stir until heated through.
