Every time my girl Jennifer from She Made U Cook posts a picture of one of her food creations on Facebook or Instagram my mouth waters! I’m constantly asking her to she me a plate, cupcake or something; her food looks just that good. So, I decided to hit her up and ask her if she mind sharing some of those delicious recipes with my readers and she happily obliged.
Check out her post below…
I’m currently doing the Master Cleanse but my honey bun still has to eat.
Our favorite restaurant is An Family’s Restaurant Crustaceans, the one located here in San Francisco since were not in the fabulous Beverly Hills. Tons of people visits this location (including a slew of frequent celebrities such as Kim K, Lala Anthony and Justin Bieber to name a few.) They have the best garlic noodles and roasted crab ever! However at an average of about $70 a person excluding drinks we don’t get to visit often.
So here’s my attempt at garlic noodles and crab.
- 1 pack of spaghetti noodles
- 1 8oz. lump crab meat
- 1/3 cup Olive oil
- 3 tsp. minced garlic
- 1 1/2 tsp. brown sugar
- 1/4 stick of butter
- 1/2 tbs. Oyster sauce
- Fresh parsley to garnish
Firstly note I didn’t give measurements. I am a humble home cook not a chef! So I often don’t measure. I feel like taste varies so while it’s important to pay attention to portions with cooking unlike baking you don’t really have to measure.
I boiled the noodles on med/high for about 6 to 8 mins (I used almost 1/4 of a pack).
Drain the noodles when done. Next add olive oil to a skillet use about 1/3 cup depending on your skillet. I added maybe 4 tsp of minced garlic in with the olive oil. You want to cook this on medium 2 to 3 minutes careful not to burn it. Add in brown sugar 1 1/2 tsp and about 3/4 tsp of Oyster sauce whisk in and add noodles and crab meat together. Mix together all ingredients your noodles should be come fully coated with crab all throughout. At this point I added 1tsp of butter for flavor along with fresh chopped parsley. Mix some more and serve.
It came out perfect and he loved it. Remember everything in moderation, be comfortable in your kitchen cook to taste.
