Crab Fried Rice


I ate in a Thai restaurant last week with a friend and Jasmine and I shared a Crab fried rice, it was delicious so the next time I went grocery shopping crab meat was on the list. This is a simple recipe, and the crab meat really gives it pizazz.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of cooked rice
  • some frozen veggies
  • 1/2 pack snap peas
  • 1 tablespoon of fish sauce
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • salt to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • a little chili paste
  • One Cup of crab
  • One tablespoon Thai Garden seasoning from Urban accents

Method:
1. simple stir fry the onion, garlic, peppers and veggies, scramble the eggs into the mixture, mix in the crab meat
2. then add in the cooked rice little by little adding the fish sauce, chili/garlic paste to taste and soy to taste.





What creative ways have you seen to use crab recently?

and so excited my parents are coming from Scotland on Thursday!
