  • 150 gram packet cooked Fraser Isle Spanner crab meat
  • 4 free range eggs preferably organic
  • a dash of soy sauce
  • a dash of fish sauce
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 red chilli finely chopped
  • 1 cup snow pea sprouts, bottom trimmed

  5. Crack 2 eggs into a bowl, add a dash of soy and fish sauce to taste.
