    These fishcakes contain prawns, crabmeat and potatoes and are coated with herbed breadcrumbs. You make them ahead and chill them until ready to bake.

    This beautifully rich combination of flavours uses tinned crab for ease and economy. It's a pretty stylish lunch, too!

    This is a wonderful chilli crab dish that is loved in and out of Southeast Asia. The crab is stir fried in a rich sauce including chilli, garlic and ginger.

    These are perfect for a dinner party because everyone gets their own ramekin and you can make them ahead of time, then add cheese and brown them.

    A long time family favourite. This recipe was handed down to me by my mother in law. There are several versions of Chilli crab recipes in Asia. This Malaysian version is sweet and savoury and the egg adds a beautiful texture. I have this for lunch or dinner and served with steamed rice and friends have been requesting for this recipe ever since.
