Let's cook fried rice with crabs!
Here's a bit of a cooking tip, first on crabs. Do you enjoy de-boning crabs? To be truthfully honest, it's not my favorite thing. So, I buy them pre-cooked and de-boned in the market. It saves me a lot of cooking time. I freeze my crabs in small containers so when I need some, I don't have to defrost all and re-freeze the remaining lot that I won't use.
This fried rice recipe also works well for left-over crabs or shrimps. This one's a very tasty dish, so I really hope you're not allergic to seafood.
Ingredients in cooking crab fried rice:
- crab meats
- left-over rice
- garlic, crushed and chopped
- fish sauce
- cooking oil
Steps in cooking crab fried rice:
1. Saute' garlic in a hot pan with oil.
2. When the garlic turns golden, add in the crabs. Stir well.
3. Season the dish with a bit of fish sauce.
4. Add in the left-over rice. Stir well.
5. Add in the egg.
6. Season the egg with a dash of salt.
7. Break the yolk in the pan; and stir well until the egg is cooked.
8. Remove from pan.
9. Serve while hot.
Notice that I didn't add any other seasoning into the dish. You don't need additional MSG into your dish to make it taste great. If you're fond of onions, you can also add chopped onions into this dish. In which case, you saute' them right after the garlic.
