This is a great quick suppertime dish as the only cooking involved is boiling the rice noodles and cooking the sweetcorn. The other ingredients are warmed through by the hot noodles, making this a very easy dish to prepare. It’s also perfect at room temperature as a salad, which makes it great for summer parties and picnics.
Tips– If you receive a crab claw, wash and pop in a pan of boiling water and boil for about 10–12 minutes. Cool and break open the claw with a hammer and remove the meat.
Food focus– Crab is full of lean protein and minerals such as copper, selenium and zinc, in addition to being a good source of long chain omega-3 fatty acids.
