How to cook
Step 1
  • Preheat the oven at 220°C. Soak the vermicelli in water for 5 mins. As you wait, prepare the vermicelli marinade by mixing all of the ingredients together.
Step 2
  • Drain all water from the vermicelli before pouring in the marinade. Ensure that the vermicelli is coated thoroughly and leave the flavours to infuse for 10 mins.
Step 3
  • Remove the shell and pincers from the mud crabs. Halve the shells.
Step 4
  • Stir fry the garlic, ginger, coriander root, five spice powder and smoked duck with a dash of white pepper in a clay pot until fragrant.
Step 5
  • Place the marinated vermicelli on top, followed by the mud crabs.
Step 6
  • Bake for 30 mins or until the mud crabs are fully cooked through.
Step 7
  • Blend all the ingredients for the dipping sauce together. The spiciness and overall taste can be adjusted to your liking.
Step 8
  • Garnish with the chopped Chinese celery and spring onion before serving.
