Chilli crab is a Southeast Asian seafood dish that originated from Singapore. Mud crabs are commonly used and are stir-fried in a semi-thick, sweet and savoury tomato-and-chilli-based sauce. Despite its name, chilli crab is not a very spicy dish unless it is my Singaporean inspired chilli crab recipe.
I experienced Singapore Chilli Crab when I first visited Singapore in 2003. Several work colleagues and I were attending my Airworthiness Inspectors course at the Singapore Aviation Academy and I was heavily pregnant with Ashton. I spent 5 glorious weeks in Singapore and indulged in the most luscious dishes I’ve ever had the privilege of experiencing.

Chilli crab hits all the right spots with tangy gravy that seeps into the succulent flesh of the stir-fried crab. This Singaporean inspired chilli crab recipe is a real treat and is best served with rice or rotis. For the ultimate experience, crab is best eaten with your hands .
