Crab Fried Rice

Oh my goodness, this was good. The ingredients:

  • Crab meat, 1-2 cups
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • Maggi seasoning, 2 tablespoons
  • Fish sauce, 3/8 cup
  • Sugar, 2 tablespoons
  • 1 diced scallion
  • 1-2 sliced tomatoes
  • 1 sliced cucumber, peeled
  • 5 thai chilies, diced (this is hot. You may prefer fewer)
  • cilantro leaves to taste
  • lemon juice to taste

The ingredients.

Your first step really should be to start the rice, since it can take a while. I use a rice cooker, but you do you.

I love my rice cooker.

You may also want to prepare a few other ingredients.

The eggs.

The crab. You may want to sort through this just to make sure there’s no shell in it.

I used a wok, because its size was so well-suited to the volume of the dish, but you don’t have to. In any case, heat some oil in the wok and stir-fry the crab, garlic, and eggs together until the eggs have been cooked.

Apply heat.

Next, add a few other things: the cooked rice, the Maggi seasoning, the fish sauce, and the sugar. Mix it all together and cook until everything is hot.

Add the rice.

And then a few other things.

Next, add the lemon juice (to taste) and the thai chili peppers (to taste).

Thai chilies can be hot.

But tasty, though.

The rest of the ingredients don’t need to cook thoroughly – in fact having them relatively uncooked (even cold) can be kind of nice. Especially if you added a lot of chili heat, as I did.

Scallions are sometimes referred to as green onions.

So go ahead and add the scallions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and cilantro.

Adding things, adding things.

Adding things, adding things.

I want to make this again now.

Then mix it together, and enjoy!
