Succulent Crab in an Amazing Thai Chili Sauce. If you enjoy shellfish, you're going to love this Thai recipe for crab made with a rich-tasting red tomato-chili sauce. The flavorful sauce marries well with the tender crab meat. Either frozen or fresh crab (in the shell) can be used - King Crab or Snow Crab are both delicious; however, King Crab will give you the most meat, and is easier to eat. This dish is so good, it will leave you craving more - even after you've eaten your fill!
