Singapore Chile Crab with Spinach

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/singapore_chile_crab_with_spinach.html

From EatingWell:  December 2006

Restaurants all over Singapore have chile crab on their menus—it's one of the national dishes. Usually made with whole crabs swimming in a spicy chile sauce, this streamlined version is much simpler—and less messy to eat. Although a little more expensive, this dish looks the most beautiful and tastes the best when made with "colossal" lump crabmeat. Make it a meal: Serve over instant brown rice. Cool off with mango sorbet for dessert.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Whisk water, ketchup, soy sauce, tomato paste and cornstarch in a medium bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 1 minute. Add garlic, chile and ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add spinach and stir until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the sauce and crab; reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes.
