Can you be good at cooking a dish that you don’t even eat?

In my humble opinion, yes.

I have attempted the recipe – Fried Crabs with Salted Egg Yolk, twice. The first time I cooked it, my man commented it was good. He actually taught me how to clean and prepare the crabs for cooking. The second time I cooked it, he was clearly impressed, saying it’s simply superb; so much better than any of the crabs he tried in seafood restaurants. My mother-in-law commented it was very good, which made my face glowed with happiness and satisfaction. My man persuaded me to taste it, which I did; unfortunately I did not like it at all. Yes, I know I’m strange, but that’s just me – I don’t eat crabs, no matter how delicious I cook them. Remember that song by Radiohead? “But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo…” Okay, enough nostalgia, let’s talk crabs…

Fried crabs with salted egg yolks by Elena Aradia Wee

I don’t have any secret ingredients, I referred to the recipe: Crabs with Salted Egg Yolk by Amy Beh in, but instead of using tapioca flour, I used corn flour. As for the curry leaves, I used some from my enchanted garden. Hmm… maybe that’s why my dish was magically delicious. Just kidding. ;-)

Oh yes, I put in extra salted egg yolks and butter, and I cooked it with much love and passion for my loved ones. (even though I don’t love eating crabs)

The recipe mentioned about using 3 egg yolks but I like to use more salted duck egg yolks, like maybe 10 … My mum joked that if I open a restaurant and serve this dish, I would surely rugi because my cost budget is high, lol

I lightly coated the crabs with corn flour before deep-frying them:

The second time I attempted the recipe was for a pot luck dinner in my man’s uncle’s house about a month ago. We wrapped our dish in an aluminum foil. One of his cousins thought we tapau the crabs from a seafood restaurant. I too, still can’t believe I could cook the dish that well.

they thought we tapau the crab from seafood restaurant but the truth is we cooked it ourselves

Friends and relatives, perhaps someday you’d like to invite me and my love to your kitchen and allow let us to delight your taste buds with our special dishes? :-)

p/s: ketam tanggung sendiri ya… haha
