Trying an asian insipred seafood recipe today with a barbecue adaptation. This recipe can be used on fish, shrimps, lobster, whatever. This time I use live dungeness crabs.

So, I started with slicing 2 whole yellow onions vertically (as opposed to onion rings)

Slice up about 10 tomatoes lengthwise also

Heat up a little oil, drop onions in, add garlic powder ( or fresh garlic ... I was lazy), black pepper and brown them. Then add some Tom Yum paste

And some ABC Medium Sweet Soy Sauce

Salt and sugar to taste

That's the sauce that you'll pour on the crab.

Now crack the crabs and place on pit, indirect heat. Put an aluminum pan underneath them with some of that sauce to catch the dripings.

When the crabs are dark enough, drop them all in the pan and pour the rest of the sauce on top, foil it, snd let cook for another 30 minutes. Enjoy on a bed of rice.

Looks delicious.

Grocery stores in my area don't carry sweet soy sauce. What would you recommend as a substitute -- soy with a bit of brown sugar or honey, perhaps?

I think soy sauce and molasses are closer. But really though, call indo java groceries in new york (718 ) 779-2241
and if you buy enough stuff to fill USPS flat rate small box, they'll ship em to you.
Get some Indomie Mie Goreng while you' at it :) and Belacan paste to make Sambal hot sauce.

Try that first, and if for some reason that falls through, PM me and I'll buy some from an asian store here and mail em to you. Helping out a brethren :)
