This is a fantastic way to prepare crabs when in-season. They are simply steamed and served with a seasoned dipping sauce and Chinese black vinegar.

1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
2 tablespoons finely chopped ginger
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3 1/2 tablespoons Chinese black vinegar
sugar to taste
monosodium glutamate (MSG) to taste
- Make the sauce by heating the sesame oil in a small saucepan for 15 seconds. Add the soy sauce, sugar, MSG, Shaoxing wine and heat for 15 seconds more. Pour into a bowl and add ginger, set aside.
- Pour some black vinegar into a separate bowl and set aside.
- Steam the crabs over high heat for 15-20 minutes or until they are cooked through. Transfer to a serving plate and serve with sauce and vinegar.
