  • Summary

    This dish can pack a lot of heat—or not. If you like a lot of spice, feel free to up the amount of fiery bird's-eye chiles. If you prefer a slightly milder dish, you can remove the seeds from the chiles.

    Ingredients

    • 8 soft-shelled crabs, cleaned, or 2 whole Dungeness crabs
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 (3-inch) knob ginger, minced (about 3 tablespoons)
    • 5 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 tablespoons)
    • 3 to 4 fresh red bird's-eye chiles, seeded and minced
    • 1 tablespoon Chinese fermented black beans or black bean sauce
    • 1 tablespoon shaohsing rice wine or sherry
    • 1/2 cup plain tomato sauce, purchased or homemade
    • 1/4 cup mild chili sauce, such as Heinz
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
    • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
    • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
    • 1 scallion, thinly sliced on bias
    • Accompaniments: steamed Chinese buns or baguette slices
