Prawns with Crab Paste Egg Fried Rice - Food with Mae-3

Prawns with Crab Paste Fried Rice

This turned out sooo good! My children really enjoyed this fried rice too, they scoffed up their food so fast. Haha! 

A fast and easy meal for you to make, this took me less than 20 minutes to make and it doesn’t have a lot of ingredients. 

I’m using crab paste which is the closest alternative to Filipino’s crab fat that is used for Aligue Fried Rice. Ideally I wanted to make Aligue fried rice but crab fat is not available in the UK.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we have. I definitely recommend squeezing some lemon, it complements it so well!

Prawns with Crab Paste Egg Fried Rice - Food with Mae-3


500-800g leftover rice
150g salted butter, dishevelled & gutted
800g prawns
2-4 eggs
5 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon crab paste
1 teaspoon salt
2 pinch black pepper
2 stems spring onions
1 lemon



In a wok or large pan cook the prawns first. Melt some butter, add the prawns, season with ½ teaspoon salt and a pinch of black pepper. Cook until each side has turned orange. Take out of the wok and leave it on the side.


Add the rest of the butter and add minced garlic. Cook the garlic until it turns golden brown, add the crab paste. Cook for a minute then add the rice, cook until incorporated and then add the prawns back. Stir and cook for a minute, put it aside and cook the eggs. Once the eggs are cooked, mix the rice and cook for another minute. 


To finish your fried rice, sprinkle the chopped spring onions and serve while it’s hot. Squeeze some lemon juice for that freshness.
