Chinese loves adding Flower Crabs when making Steamboat as the meat is really sweet. Steaming it in a distinct sauce is also one of the most common methods of cooking this crab.

  2. A simple and lovely soup, like my favourite fish soup with bee hoon! Your recipe is so easy to follow and the pictures would be a great help especially for beginner cooks. Maybe I will make this tomorrow if I can find nice fresh flower crabs. Thanks for sharing Shirley :)

  4. Great recipe! Looks very yummy but too bad i'm allergy to flower crab, so i can't eat them. Perhaps replacing flower crab with ordinary mud crab should taste just as nice.

    1. Balvinder, as u can see from the pix above, flower crabs have patterns on their shell & are much cheaper than other types of crabs. U can probably chk with the stall holders in your markets. They make tasty soups.

    1. FoodieFC, I'm not an expert in that. I'd normally chk with the stall holders. In supermarkets, it's written on the board at times. Have fun cooking!

  17. Hihi you mentioned can replace with fish. Do you mean fish head or fillet? What kind of fish is good? Thanks!!!

    1. Doreen, it's wonderful having u here with us! U can use fish head or fillet, but it'll be better coating them with flour & deep-frying first before adding into the soup. Here's another version you can try: Crustacean Lovers, This Is For You!
