2 Servings

Preparation time approx 5 minutes (excluding pre-cooking rice)

Cooking time approx 10 minutes

SUMMARY

With a squeeze of lemon for a bit of zing, this is a tastey and very healthy dish which is ideal for giving energy to sporting people and also for people concerned about their fitness.

I've included pre-cooked crab in my recipe, but pre-cooked prawns can be used, or even a piece of cooked chicken can be diced and used as a substitute for the crab.

I always recommend using a wok for stir frys but you can improvise with a frying pan provided it is big enough to comfortably contain all the ingredients as they are being stirred.

Tip: I buy a lot of ingredients for asian and oriental cuisine from ethnic grocery stores as the bottles sold in supermarkets are often on the small side and less economical. If you have a store local to where you live, I would recommend you pay a visit and purchase your soy sauces and oyster sauces here. (Root ginger and fresh chillies are often better value too).
