1 dozen crabs
6 cups milk (approximately)
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. paprika
1 tbsp. soy sauce
2 garlic pods, crushed
Salt, pepper & Chinese red pepper as desired

Preparation: Scald crabs and drain. When cool, remove claws and outer shell. Clean thoroughly, leaving only that portion containing the meat.
