      Title: Bu ja (steamed crab)
 Categories: Seafood
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      2 tb Chopped garlic
      2 tb Chopped coriander (including
           -the root if possible)
      4 oz Crabmeat
      4 oz Ground pork
      1    Egg or large hen's egg
      2 tb Fish sauce
      1 tb Light soy sauce
      1 pn Sugar
           Grated ginger and sliced
           -Jalapeno (prik chi fa
           -daeng) (optional)
  
  This is traditionally made from whole fresh crabs. The fresh (read that as
  alive) crabs are killed by dropping them in boiling water, then the
  shells are split, and the meat extracted for the recipe. However, you
  can simply buy crab meat and if you don't have crab shells, you could
  easily use ramekin dishes (though the shells are nice and showy for
  party food).
  
  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,
  instead.
  
  Combine all the ingredients in a food processor, and then spoon a
  quarter of the mixture into each of four crab shells or ramekin
  dishes, and steam for about 15 minutes until cooked.
  
  Garnish with slivered red and green chillies and coriander leaves.
