Chili-Garlic Crab and Prawns


3 king crabs - only meat chunks
15 raw jumbo prawns - keep shells
8 cloves garlic - chopped small
1 or 2 big red chili - chopped thin
1 cup red or white grape juice
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 lemon - wedges for garnishing
Bunch of parsley
Salt to taste


  • To begin with, in a large frying pan - heat up some oil on low-medium heat.
  • Then add the prawns and allow it to cook for 2 - 3 minutes.
  • Stir around just one time.
  • Thereafter, throw in the crab along with the sliced garlic and chopped up chili.
  • Season with some salt and a pinch of pepper.
  • Now you can reduce the heat - cover and allow the prawns and crabs to cook for a few minutes.
  • After that's done, throw the parsley in the pan and stir.
  • Then increase the heat.
  • Now add the lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and the red or white grape juice.
  • Let this cook for a good while - until the liquid reduces.
  • Garnish with the cut up lemon wedges and serve immediately.
  • Thick chunks of bread - to mop up yummy flavoured sauce - will go along perfectly with this dish.
