Delicate garlic crab with yummy spaghettiI often combine spaghetti and crab meat with flavorful seasonings. Today's recipe is mild in flavor yet tastes great. All you need is fresh crab meat and some magic in your hands. Do not use frozen green peas else you may not get the best flavor. People who love spicy food can add chili sauce in moderate quantity. Whenever you make it, serve it piping hot with your favorite sauce. Do not hesitate to add your favorite seafood in this preparation. For flavoring crab, I've used a generous amount of garlic which gives it an amazing flavor. In case, you cannot use crab meat, replace them with prawns.
