3. Add the raw crabs to the wok and stir-fry for a further 2-3 minutes until the crab turns red in colour.

4.Stir in the sauce and cook for 1 minute, then add the water, lime juice, spring onion and coriander. Cover and set aside.

5. To make the coconut noodles, heat a wok and add in the vegetable oil. Add in the chopped garlic and ginger and stir-fry for 30 seconds.

6. Add the coconut milk and shrimp paste, then the chilli, dried chillies, spring onion and coriander. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
