  • 2 whole crabs, cleaned and cracked
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red chili, thinly sliced
  • 1 green chili, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks
  • 3 tablespoons tomato ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • Chopped spring onions for garnish


  1. Heat vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add minced garlic and sliced chilies. Sauté until fragrant.
  2. Add sliced onion and bell pepper to the wok. Stir-fry until they start to soften.
  3. Toss in the cleaned and cracked crabs. Stir-fry for about 5 minutes until they turn pink.
  4. In a bowl, mix together tomato ketchup, chili sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, and salt. Pour this sauce over the crabs in the wok.
  5. Add pineapple chunks to the wok and stir well to combine.
  6. Let the crabs simmer in the sauce for another 5-7 minutes until the sauce thickens and coats the crabs evenly.
  7. Once the crabs are cooked through and the sauce has thickened, remove from heat.
  8. Garnish with chopped spring onions before serving.


  • Choose live and fresh crabs for the best flavor and texture.
  • Be careful not to overcook the crabs, as they can become tough and rubbery.
  • Adjust the amount of chili according to your spice preference. You can remove the seeds for a milder heat.
  • Serve with steamed rice to complement the flavors of the spicy sweet and sour sauce.


  • Substitute crab with shrimp or lobster for a different twist on this dish.
  • Add other vegetables like carrots, snow peas, or baby corn for extra crunch and flavor.
