Delicious Chilli Crab

I've been getting into making various sorts of crab dishes these days and the best by far have to be the chilli crab. This is a dish from Singapore and it basically uses mud crabs found in mangroves. You would have to scrub the crab and whatnot before it's ready for cooking, and I wouldn't advise the faint of heart to try this at home -- chilli crab has to be made with fresh, live crab for it to taste the best!

Unfortunately, the hubby doesn't like spicy food (Wikipedia says it's not spicy, and I probably added too much chilli) as much as I do, so I haven't been able to make the chilli crab dish as much as I want to. Other crab dishes are fine by him though. We had a crab and lobster salad the other day which was absolutely yummy.
