Searching For Soy Sauce Based Marinated Crab Recipe


I recently returned from a smashing New Orleans trip where I had the most amazing marinated crabs. I am not ashamed to admit that I licked my fingers, the shells, and plate clean! They were the best thing I ate on this trip and I would love to recreate at home. I suspect the sauce was soy based, with some sweetness and spice to it as well. I think the hubby picked them up at Cajun Seafood. I'd appreciate suggestions for this recipe. I am already rearranging my schedule to fit in another trip in order to satisfy my marinated crab cravings. Thanks in advance...Ciao

  1. I am not familiar with this dish, but I'm intrigued. Would this be the Cajun Seafood on Broad and Washington? Right by my house if so. Been in there a couple of times but never had any marinated crabs. Will have to check it out. Thanks!

    1. Koreans make raw, marinated crab in a soy sauce-based marinade. It's basically soy sauce, Korean chili flakes (no seeds, the kind used to make kimchi), sesame seeds, green onion, garlic, ginger, a bit of sugar, sesame seed oil if you like. There's another cochujan-based version that's spicy as well.
