Baked Stuffed Crabs

My hubby brought home some flower crabs from his fishing trip.  I steamed them for 20 minutes and shelled the crabmeat which was quite a lot.  Gave some to my mum for making Popiah vegetable filling and kept some for this baked stuffed crabs.
[makes 4 pieces]
4 flower crabs - steamed and shell the crabmeat.  Set aside.
4 tbsp of potato flakes [can use mashed potato]
1/2 cup milk
1 big onion - diced
1 tomato - diced
2 pieces of cheddar cheese - quartered
some chopped coriander leaves
2 tbsp oil 
4 crab shells
 Seasoning [combine]
1 tbsp curry powder
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp each of light soy sauce and oyster sauce

  1. Mix potato flakes with milk.   Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in wok, stir fry onions for 1 minute and add in tomato.  Fry for another minute and add in seasoning.  Continue to fry for 1-2 minutes until filling is well combined.  Off heat.
  3. Add in crabmeat, potato mix and chopped coriander.   Mix well to combine.
  4. Divide filling into 4 portions.  Line a quartered piece of cheddar cheese on the inside of the crab shell. Stuff each filling into crab shells.  Level up evenly and neatly.  Place another quartered cheese on top.  Finish stuffing the remaining crab shells.
  5. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 15-20 minutes or until the top of the filling turns golden brown.

Hi Phong Hong, you gave me the idea to do this recipe but I used potato instead of meat. Kiasee - no-lah trying to cut down on meat-leh.

Hi Cheah, the crab meat is much sweeter cos' the crabs were still alive when I steamed them to flake the flesh.
