200 ml tomato sauce
60 ml corns
2 tablespoons white vinegar

4 lime leaves
1 big mud crab


1/2 bunch coriander
1/2 bunch of Thai basil
2 limes

Put all ingredients (except crabs, of course) into the food processor, mix, salt and pepper seasonings. Toss with crab, leave 2 hours. You can hammer the crab shell and a few thick claws a few blows with the mallet, open the shell and let the marinade go in. It also makes it easier to eat later.

Heat the pan and add the marinated crabs. Stir until the shell turns orange, the meat is translucent – about 25 minutes. If the wok gets too dry, add a glass of seawater or your choice of beer.

Place in a bowl and decorate with scattered herbs and lime wedges.

Bach Hao Chao soup (sugarcane shrimp rice rolls)
Chefs Angie and Dan Hong

Hong Kong dinner was the highlight of this week on Monday at my mom’s house. I seldom promised to go out for dinner with my partners that night because I knew that no meal would be the same as what I had at home with my family.
1 kg black tiger shrimp (in this case the freezing effect is better)
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons salt
5 teaspoons raw sugar
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup arrowroot
Sugarcane canned or fresh, cut into about 20 cm in length. 1 cm in diameter (a bit like a cabanossi stick)
Vegetable oil, used for frying

Vietnamese mint and garden mint
1 butter lettuce, torn into leaves
1 Lebanese cucumber, cut into sticks
1 green bean sprouts, washed
Glutinous rice cha juice dip sauce
Vietnamese pickled carrot and white radish
1 package rice noodles, cooked
1 wrap rice paper

In a large bowl, frozen prawns are mixed with garlic, salt, sugar, pepper, baking powder and arrowroot flour. The mixture was refrigerated for 1 hour, then the contents were transferred to a food processor and flashed until a smooth paste was formed. Divide the shrimp mousse into tennis balls. On a clean, slightly damp surface, tap the ball several times to eliminate cavitation. Once smashed, wrap the shrimp mousse on the cane stick and repeat until all mousses have run out.

Transfer sugarcane shrimp to steamer for 20 minutes or until shrimp mousse is hard. These can be stored in a freezer and thawed as needed. Heat fryer or heavy pan to 180 ° C and pan crab shrimp to golden yellow. Or, they can grill or roast until heated.

Service: Place herbs and salad ingredients on several large plates, together with sugarcane shrimp (you can slide the sugarcane, divided into four, vertical), pickles, rice noodles and uncooked rice paper. Pour hot water into shallow bowl that everyone can touch.

When eating, everyone digested a sheet of rice paper in hot water, placed it on a plate, and added his fillings to the center. Roll up like a cigar or burrito, soak in nuócchaam and enjoy!
