Stir fried noodles with Blue Swimmer crab (Singapore style)


150 gram rice vermicelli prepared to packet directions.

( to make them more manageable I cut them into shorter lengths once cooked then toss them in a little oil – they should be both dry and loose for successful stir frying)

200 gm picked crab meat

2 x egg omelette chopped into small pieces

2 x dried shittaki mushrooms, soaked then thinly sliced

2 eschallots thinly sliced

Peanut oil

Sesame oil

Fish sauce

2 – 3 tsp curry powder


Heat 1 tblsp peanut oil and 1/2 tblsp sesame oil in wok until smoking

Stir fry mushrooms 1 minute

Add vermicilli and continue to stir fry until completely loose and heated thru

Add egg, crab and eschallots and stir fry till heated thru

Add fish sauce ( a little at a time until desired degree of saltiness is obtained)

Add 2 or 3 tsp curry powder and continue stir frying until cooked through


Note :

Noodles should be quite dry when cooking has been completed.

Stir frying process should take about 5 min
