Bean curd ala shark's fin!!

silken tofu 1 pack
crab meat, fresh or canned, 170 g
oil 2 tbsp
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp ginger, finely chopped
1/2 cup chicken or fish stock (can replace with the liquid from the canned crab)
dash of pepper
dash of sesame oil
2 tbsp corn flour mixed with 4 tbsp cold water
chopped coriander leaves
chopped spring onion

drain and flake crab to remove any bony tissue. Reserve liquid if using.
heat the oil in a small pan and gently fry onions and ginger for a minute or so, stirring, until ginger starts to turn golden and onions are softened. Add stock and crab meat and heat through.
Season with pepper and add cornflour mixture.
Stir over medium heat until sauce boils and thickens. Add tofu, spoon sauce over and heat until just it is to come to a boil.
Taste and add salt if necessary. Add dash of sesame oil, top with coriander and spring onions.
Serve with rice.
