Fried Milk With Crabmeat

I cannot tell you enough about the glories of Hong Kong. On my first visit a few years ago I wandered into the Jade Palace Restaurant at the Star Ferry Dock Terminal. I could not imagine what they could do with fried milk and crab, so I ordered the dish.

Cuisine: Chinese
Type: Chicken, Poultry
Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

5   Egg whites
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt - or to taste
1 1/2 tablespoons 22mlCornstarch
3/4 cup 177mlMilk - cold
1/2 lb 227g / 8ozFresh crabmeat - cleaned
1/4 cup 59mlPeanut oil
1 teaspoon 5mlSesame oil
1 teaspoon 5mlSoy sauce - light
1   White pepper - or to taste
1 tablespoon 15mlVirginia ham or Italian ham slivers
1 tablespoon 15mlChinese parsley - chopped

Recipe Instructions

Whip the egg whites by hand until they are frothy. Add the salt. Blend the milk and cornstarch together and combine with the crabmeat. Gently fold in the egg whites.

Heat the oil in a non-stick 12-inch frying pan to normal scrambled-egg cooking temperature. Pour in the crab and egg mixture and cook over a medium flame, stirring gently until the mixture sets up. Add the sauce ingredients as the dish comes to completion. Do not brown.

Put on a serving platter and add the garnishes.
