Crabmeat Fried Rice

Crabmeat fried rice is all time favourite for my family in Thailand. We usually have it with Hot & Sour Tom Yam Soup as they are such a perfect pair.

To serve 2 you will need:
1 can of crabmeat, drained (or ¾ - 1 cup of freshly cooked crabmeat if you are lucky)
1 ½ cups of cooked Jasmine rice (leftover from the day before is better)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 onion, thinly sliced
2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 spring onion, chopped
2 tablespoons coriander leaves
1 tablespoon Oyster sauce
1-2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 lime/lemon, cut into wedges
1 medium tomato or 1/2 cucumber, sliced

Fried onion in a wok over medium high heat for one or two minutes, add garlic and turn until fragrant. Add eggs on one side and spread over the surface until half cooked before stirring to combine with onion and garlic. Add crabmeat, oyster sauce, soy sauce and sugar. Stir well and cook for further 2 minutes before adding rice. Turn to combine – taste your rice and add more seasoning if needed. Add chopped spring onion and pepper. Remove from heat. Serve with a wedge of lime or lemon and sliced tomato or cucumber.
