I looked for crab salad recipes, but a lot had celery and a lot had way too much mayo for our likes. Feel free to use more mayo-I just wanted our crab moistened rather than “gloopy”. We cooked our own mud crab for this, but I think it would work with tinned or imitation (something I have never tasted). I haven't allowed for the catching, cooking, chilling or picking of the crab in prep times.
I saw Matt Moran make this on Masterchef last night. I want to make it when we get into squid territory in a week or so. Matt served dried chilies with his squid-he dried them in the oven before slicing. I'm just suggesting fresh chiil.
I love these Asian type cabbage salads and this is great with all its fresh herbs. I serve the noodles seperately for everyone to sprinkle over as I hate the mushy noodles in the leftovers. That bit's up to you.
