Combine flour, cornstarch, and 1 tablespoon Thai seasoning in a large bowl and mix well. Add crabs at one time and coat completely. Arrange crabs on an ungreased baking sheet and let stand 1 hour, reserve flour mixture.
Using a toothpick, puncture holes in the back of each crab (this will keep the crabs from exploding when fried). Recoat crabs with flour mixtures.
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat to 350 F. Deep fry crabs, 2 at a time, until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Set 2 crabs at side of each of 4 serving plates and keep warm.
For sauce, heat olive oil in a medium skillet over high heat. Add onions, garlic, and ginger and sauté until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add stock, soy sauce, lemon juice, bell pepper, bean sauce, and Thai seasoning and cook, stirring 2 to 3 minutes. Pour ¼ of the sauce over the other side of each serving plate and garnish with mint, and serve.
