This simple, yet elegant fried rice brings me back to the sunny beaches of Phuket where crab is fresh and plentiful. The heat from the chili is balanced by bursts of sweet peas intermingled with succulent pieces of crab. Thai people like to season their rice with a table sauce called nam pla prik, which is a combination of fish sauce, a squeeze of lime juice, and a few slices of chili peppers. For best results, rice should be chilled in a refrigerator over night before cooking this dish.
