● 1 kg snow crab (about 5-6 pieces)

● 2 teaspoons salt

● 5 minced garlic cloves

● 3 sliced garlic cloves

● Cooking oil

● 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

● 1/2 teaspoon vinegar

● Spices including ground pepper, sugar, chicken powder, and ground Sichuan pepper


  • Step1: Clean and prepare the snow crabWash the snow crab several times to remove dirt and slime, and then drain. If the snow crab is frozen, it needs to be thawed first. Then, cut the crab legs into bite-sized pieces.
  • Step 2: Prepare the seasoning saucePrepare the seasoning sauce for the snow crab with salt and pepper according to the following recipe: 5 minced garlic cloves, 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon ground Sichuan pepper, 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil, 1/2 teaspoon vinegar, 1 teaspoon sugar, and a little chicken powder. Mix well with your hands to create a thick mixture.
  • Step 3: Fry the snow crabHeat the oil in a frying pan until it is boiling (the amount of oil should be 2/3 of the pan), then fry 3 sliced garlic cloves until they become fragrant and golden. Remove the garlic and add the snow crab that has been cleaned to the frying pan and fry until golden. Remove the crab and set it aside to drain.
