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!

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.
