JW Marriot Bamboo Lagoon : Stuffed Crabs – recipe by Executive Chef Debrup Mitra
10 minutes into a lovely brunch at the Bamboo Lagoon in JW Marriot Hotel in Deira and we were convinced that we had found one of the best buffet spreads in Dubai. And trust us: we’ve been around! We fancy ourselves as somewhat of Buffet Inspectors, and for us, Bamboo Lagoon ticks all the boxes: diverse variety of masterfully prepared food at a reasonable price point. Their seafood offerings are especially fabulous, which is why it gives us great joy to present to you a seafood recipe straight out of their kitchens.
4 pcs Fresh Blue Crabs
Crab Meat – 100 grams
2 tbsp Lime Juice
1 tsp Minced Garlic
1 tsp Fresh Chili Chopped
400 gms Chicken – Minced
30 gms Water Chest Nuts Fine Crushed
30 gms Black Mushroom Fine Diced
¼ Cup Green Onion Finely Chopped
1 tbsp Coriander Leaves Chopped
1 tsp Fish Sauce
1 tsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Ground Black Pepper
Salt to Taste
1 pc. Whole Egg
Oil for Deep Frying
Steam the fresh crabs for about 30 minutes. Remove crab meat from the shell without breaking the head shell.
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and blend well until texture becomes sticky.
Stuff the filling into the empty crab shells using a spoon and smooth out the surface. Steam the stuffed crab for 5 minutes then cool it down.
Heat up fryer with oil. When the oil is heated up, dip each stuffed crab shell into beaten eggs until coated well. Fry the stuffed crabs till surface turned light golden brown, drain excess oil on paper towels. Serve immediately.
