Crab Fried Rice Print Email

2 cloves garlic
3 TBS canola oil
1 egg
1 cup cooked jasmine rice
Salt and pepper
Pinch sugar
2 TBS soy sauce
3 scallions, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
3 ounces cooked crabmeat
1 TBS cilantro, chopped

Pour the oil into a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Crack the egg into the skillet and let it cook for about a minute or so. Then scramble up the bits that haven't cooked.

Dump in the rice, and stir until all the rice is coated in the oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes. Then add the sugar, soy sauce, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for another minute.

Add the chopped scallions and half of the crab meat. Cook for another minute, stirring occasionally.

Serve the rice on a large plate. Sprinkle with the remaining crab and chopped cilantro. Season with salt, pepper, and soy sauce to taste. - serves 2
