Thai Steamed Crab, 'Bu Ja'

Thai Steamed Crab, 'Bu Ja'

Street Vendor Videos

This is traditionally made from whole fresh crabs cooked in boiling water. This recipe can easily be made with crab meat that you purchase, however. The food should be steamed in a bamboo steamer to avoid condensation dripping onto the cooking food. Alternatively if you use a metal steamer cover the food with a paper towel which is not in contact with the food, or simply steam the crab in a microwave on medium or low heat. If you use a microwave let the dish stand for one minute after each three minutes cooking, and check for "doneness" by probing it with a fork.

If you prefer to omit the pork, use extra crabmeat or chopped shrimp.
