While we are on the topic of being inspired by bloggers-this dish was inspired by Tigerfish. Rather, she submitted this dish for Presto Pasta Nights a loooong time ago and I have been eyeing it since. It was so long ago that I can’t even find the link!!
So when I spotted a packet of Prima Deli Chili Crab Premix on the shelves of my favourite oriental store (Chan Brothers on High Road for those in Perth!), it went into my basket straight away.
Who says Chili Crab Pre mix is for chili crab? It’s for pasta and seafood too!!
While the premix did not resemble the glorious chilli crabs that we enjoyed in Singapore or Malaysia, it certainly suits a pasta dish. Do not underestimate the chili powder that they provide in the packet. It hit me 3 seconds after bitting into the pasta. yum!
