King Crab fried rice is one of my favorite dishes I order when dining at my local Japanese restaurant. Every time I order it, I always say I’m going to make this with riced cauliflower, so finally I did! This was inspired by my basic cauliflower fried recipe recipe which can be made with chicken, salmon, or served as a side.

But the best part, it was super easy to make. I riced the cauliflower myself in the food processor, but you can also used pre-cut or frozen riced cauliflower such as Green Giant. Super easy, low-carb, and so so good!

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Total: 30 mins
Yield: 4 servings
Serving Size: 1 1/2 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 lb 2 frozen King crab legs
  • 24 oz riced cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • pinch of salt
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 small onion diced fine
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 5 scallions diced, whites and greens separated
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce or gf soy sauce use Liquid Aminos for W30, Paleo

Instructions

  • If making the rice yourself, place a few florets at a time in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is small and has the texture of rice or couscous – don’t over process or it will get mushy. Set aside and repeat with the remaining cauliflower in a few batches.
  • In a large pot, add about 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Add the crab leg and cook, covered until heated through, about 10 minutes. When cooked, remove the crab from the shell and lightly flake.
  • Season eggs with salt. Heat a large saute pan or wok over medium heat and spray with oil. Add the eggs and cook, turning a few times until set; set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low, add the sesame oil and saute onions, scallion whites, and garlic about 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft. Raise the heat to medium-high.
  • Add the cauliflower “rice” to the saute pan along with soy sauce. Mix, cover and cook approximately 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is slightly crispy on the outside but tender on the inside.
  • Add the egg and crab, remove from heat and mix in scallion greens.

  1. I love crab; I love riced cauliflower, but this recipe was so bad I had to throw it out. I used the gluten-free soy sauce so I’m not sure if that has such a different taste to it, but this was terrible. I cook almost everyday for my family, so it bothered me so much I went over and over the recipe to see what I did wrong. Not sure how it could taste so bad but it did. Sorry Skinnytaste, I use your recipes and find them delish most of the time. This one, not so much.

  2. FYI—crab fried rice isn’t Japanese.  So if you like ordering it at Japanese restaurants, try it at Thai or Vietnamese restaurants.

  3. If one is using frozen cauliflower, how does that work? are you making the cauliflower first and then adding it to the dish? Please advise before I ruin $30 worth of crablegs.

    1. I tried using frozen cauliflower just to make fried rice in general and I thought it was somewhat mushy.  Did you try it?

  4. I just joined weight watchers and stumbled upon your website looking for some healthy, but interesting, menu ideas. This website is fabulous as are the recipes! I made the king crab fried cauliflower rice for Valentine’s Day! It was delicious and a hit with my husband. I also made the spaghetti squash enchilada bowls — also wonderful and a hit in my house. Thanks for the great recipes and the organization!!

    This was extremely delicious! Made it today i added 2 tablespoons of sweet peas for color. I haven’t found one of your recipes i tried that i haven’t loved yet! Very filling.

  6. I thought I was going to love this one and I didn’t. 🙁 My boyfriend and I thought it was too “fishy.” We used canned crab we bought at Costco, so I don’t know if that might have made a difference.

  7. I’ve used frozen priced cauliflower in other dishes and I definitely want to try this but I must be doing it wrong because there’s always a lot of water in mine and the cauliflower ends up mushy. I don’t have a food processor to make my own. Help!
