Crab Fried Rice

October 28, 2022

I’ve always been a fan of Thai food. Whenever my family gets Thai takeout, I call in the order.  My husband Curtis always asks for Crab fried rice (with extra crab) to go along with whatever I decide to choose off of the menu for the family. I’ve been making Chinese style fried rice for years, so I figured I would give Thai fried rice a try since Curtis loves it so much. The crab meat is the star of the recipe, so I go light on the amount of fish sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil and Laila Ali Spice Blends used to flavor the dish. Fresh cilantro, scallions and lime juice add a pop of brightness to finish off the recipe. Also, cilantro has a ton of health benefits such as helping the body flush out heavy metals, protects against oxidative stress, lowers blood sugar and reduces anxiety. So I grow cilantro in my home garden and use it as much as possible. Back to the rice…unexpectedly, the first time I made my Thai inspired fried rice, it got my husbands stamp of approval! So the recipe has made its way into our monthly menu rotation. I invite you to try this dish and make it your own. Check out my full line of Laila Ali Kitchen and Dining Collection at At Home.

Tip: If you like the subtle sweetness of traditional Thai fried rice, you can add a teaspoon of raw sugar (or a sugar substitute) to my recipe by stirring it into the soy sauce before adding it to the pan.
