  • 3 green crabs
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 red chillies, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
  • Lime wedges


1 Remove limbs and claws from crabs. Cut body portions in half and clean well. Crack claws with the back of a knife or cleaver.

2 Heat a wok over high heat. Add oil, chillies, salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute.

3 Add crab pieces and stir fry for 5-7 minutes or until shells change colour and flesh is white and tender.

4 Serve crabs with lime wedges and eat with your fingers, so the spices on the shell flavour the crab meat.
