    Serves: 2


    2 tsp chiu chow chilli oil
    6 Essential salad onions, trimmed and finely sliced
    20g fresh root ginger, finely grated
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1 Thai red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
    2 tsp dark soy sauce
    1½ tbsp tomato ketchup
    100g pack white crab meat
    2 tbsp mayonnaise
    2 hot dog rolls
    150g pack Essential side salad


    1. Put the chilli oil (including a little of the sediment) in a small pan over a medium heat. Once hot, add ½ the salad onions, the ginger, garlic, ½ the chilli and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes until soft. Add the soy sauce and ketchup. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring, then remove from the heat.

Cut open the rolls along the top, spread a little of the remaining ½ tbsp mayonnaise in each and add a little of the lettuce from the salad pack. Fill with the chilli crab mixture, then scatter over the remaining chilli and salad onions. Serve with the remaining salad, drizzled with a little extra chilli oil (or another dressing of your choice) if liked.
