    Crispy Baked Crabsticks (Addictive!)

    Yum

    These crispy baked crabsticks don’t last a day at my home. Once it’s out of the oven, everyone at home will gravitate towards the kitchen table. It is a battle trying to fend off prying hands while I try as fast as I can to sweep the crispy snacks into containers for storing. This mama has lost so many of those battles that I resorted to only making it when I’m alone in the house now. Because it’s baked with the option of little to no oil being used, it’s a healthy snack to have year-round. Not just an indulgence during the festive.

    Dodo crabstick is my personal favourite when it comes to making this delicious snack. It is a trusted brand with products made in Singapore and Halal certification. I appreciate how Dodo considers its consumers when developing its products. Dodo’s crabsticks come in 3 different packagings, each of them caters to different users.

    The 800g pack is for frying and baking as it is less tightly wound together, easier to tear which makes this the choice for making this particular snack. The 250g is multi-purpose for mass consumer’s market, it can be found chilled or frozen. The 1kg pack is for soups and hotpots it’s more packed together so it will not break up and scatter in the soup after continuous boiling.

    My girls brought a little container to snack on during their music lessons only to come back with pre-orders. Their music teachers are asking if I’m selling them as they’d like to order. What a compliment! I took the chance to teach my girls how to make this recipe as a thank you gift for their teachers. It’s so simple that now I have a little production kitchen going on.

    By the way, the curry powder helps to coat the crabstick so it doesn’t stick to the pan. If my kids can handle the spice, it means it’s not spicy at all. You can also switch it up with paprika, turmeric, or other spices. If you are omitting it altogether, please use a non-stick pan or line with parchment paper, ‘sticking’ the paper down with some oil. This will prevent the crabstick from sticking to the pan.
