Hong Kong seafood lunch

I'm spending a few days in Hong Kong on route to New Zealand. Today we went for lunch in the seafood restaurant district of Lei Yue Mun. There are lots of stalls selling fish and seafood from tanks. You pick what you want to have, they weigh it and price it and then you take it to one of the restaurants to have it cooked. We picked out a fish, a crab and some tiger prawns.

They brought salted peanuts cooked in their skins for us to have with our beer. Then they brought a plate of clams in black bean sauce. The tiger prawns that we selected were split in half, still in their shells, and cooked with garlic and spring onion. The fish was steamed whole with soy sauce and spring onions. The crab came as spicy crab- fried and covered in a heap of fried ginger, chilli, garlic and spring onion. we also had egg fried rice which had pork and prawns through it.
