Leftover Idea: Chilli Crab Pasta

Chilli Crab Pasta

We had chilli crabs for dinner last night but we over-ordered and had to ta-bao (take away) half of it back.

For today’s lunch, inspired by tigerfish’s spicy shrimp prawn pasta, I decided to make a no-brainer pasta dish from the leftovers. I just heated up the crabs, and served them over some cooked pasta. As easy as cooking can get ;p

Experimenting with food presentation. Serving the noodles inside the shell. Isn’t it adorable? I think it makes a good-looking side dish =p If I am the first one to ever do this, can I please patent it hehe? =P

    I looooove chili crab. Usually I sop up the sauce with bread but pasta sounds like a great idea too.
