Rated as 3.2 out of 5 Stars

  1. Whisk garlic, ketchup, rice vinegar, soy sauce, fish sauce, hot sauce, paprika, cayenne pepper, and cumin together in a bowl.
  2. Place rice noodles in a large bowl; cover with boiling water and stir with tongs. Let soak for 10 minutes.
  3. While noodles soak, heat vegetable oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir celery, jalapenos, and green onions until tender and fragrant, about 10 minutes.
  4. Drain noodles and place in the pan; add the sauce and crabmeat. Cook and stir until noodles are coated evenly and everything is heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.


  • Chef's Notes:
  • I used pasteurized blue crab, which you can find in most grocery store fish departments.
  • You can use hot and/or sweet peppers in the sauce.
