Hairy crabs are a delicacy in China especially during Autumn. The Hairy Crab season starts from September and continues all the way till year end. Steaming is the most popular way to cook the Hairy Crab as it preserves the original aroma of the crab. Restaurants will stock them in huge numbers and they can be rather expensive. For this dish, I prepared a dipping sauce of ginger, vinegar and brown sugar coupled with the sweetness of the crab meat and enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. Bon appetit !
