Thai crab fried rice ranks pretty high up there on the long list of the hubby’s favorite foods.
I think he would replace plain jasmine rice with crab fried rice as an accompaniment to every meal, given the opportunity. It would be hard for me to go that far, as the subtle flavors of the fried rice would be completely overpowered by a spicy green curry or other really flavorful main dish. However, I totally understand why he likes it so much.
The flavors of this crab fried rice are similar to that of Thai fried rice, with saltiness from fish and soy sauces, a refreshing pop of lime, and a little spice from ground white pepper. These flavors are subtle, yet delicious, and really let the succulent crab shine as the star of the dish. It’s a winner in both of our books!
Unfortunately I don’t have the time or crab supply to make crab fried rice to go with every meal… But this assures that when I do make it, I have one happy husband!
