The combination of crab, coconut, chilli and some ginger is simply irresistible. Hard to believe, but this takes minutes to cook.
To make Ching's chilli crab, place all the ingredients for the sauce into a bowl and mix well. Heat a wok and add the vegetable oil. Put the chopped garlic, ginger and chillies into the pan and stir-fry for 30 seconds.
Add the fresh crabs to the wok and stir-fry for a further 2-3 minutes until the crab turns red in colour. Stir in the sauce and cook for 1 minute then add the water. Add the limejuice, spring onion and coriander. Turn off the heat when cooked and cover with a lid.
To make the coconut noodles, heat a wok and add the vegetable oil, put the chopped garlic and ginger into the pan, stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the coconut milk, shrimp paste and throw in the chopped chilli, chillies, spring onion and coriander, stir for 1 minute. Add the noodles and cook for a further 30 seconds to allow the noodles to absorb the sauce. To serve, place the chilli crab on top of the coconut noodles.
