Vietnamese Dish - Sauteed snow crab legs with shrimp, cucumbers and tomatoes

Posted by TetSanDiego.com on Tuesday, May 20, 2014 Under: Vietnamese food
I was spoiled by my mom's really good Vietnamese cooking. She was originally from Rach Gia, Vietnam and moved to the United States when she was 22 years old. Even though she's lived in America longer than she has lived in Vietnam, all she really cooks is Vietnamese food. 

Here is the latest feature that I try to mimic. It was time consuming for me because I actually hand cracked and removed all the crab meat from the snow crab legs that I bought frozen a couple of months ago. It took me an hour to remove the crab meat but it was so worth it. The way my mom would make it is she would leave the shells on there. It makes it a lot more  time consuming for the eaters, even though it probably would've been a lot easier. 

Here are the ingredients: snow crab legs meat, shrimp, tomatoes, cucumbers, green onions cooked in garlic and vegetable oil. Saute That's it! So easy. Serve it over a bed of rice.
