Crab and Snap Pea Stir Fry
Chef Trent Blodgett
The beauty of a stir fry is that it can be made up of so many different ingredients. This specific one is inspired by a crabmeat and snap pea stir fry that I ate just outside of Bangkok. It was funky, tangy and spicy – all of my favorite things in one dish and I was so excited to try and recreate it using our Long-tail Sunset spice blend.
Garnish with a lime for some citrusy flavor and cashews for added crunch and enjoy this unique dish with all its delicious flavors.
- Whisk together fish sauce, soy sauce and corn starch until the corn starch is fully incorporated.
- Heat a sauté pan over medium high heat and add oil to coat the bottom.
- When the pan is hot add the snaps peas and spread in an even layer.
- Cook for 2 minutes to blister in places before adding the scallions.
- Stir to combine and continue to cook until the scallions are light brown, about 1 more minute.
- Add Long-tail Sunset and stir to combine immediately followed by the crab.
- Since the crab is cooked you really want to just heat it through, about 30 seconds. Mix together without breaking apart the crab too much.
- Add the fish sauce- soy mixture when everything is hot and reduce for 10 seconds before turning off the heat.
- Add the lime juice and cashews and plate it up!
- Serve immediately and delicious over rice.
