200 grams rice noodles
200 grams bacon, diced
200 grams crab meat
100 grams salted peanuts
1 tablespoon of fresh onion, green part only, thinly sliced
2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Greek yoghurt
1 teaspoon nigella seeds or sesame seeds
salt and pepper
Cook the rice noodles according to package instructions, drain and cool them under cold running water. Cut them with scissors 3 to 4 times, to help you seasoning them.
In a large non-stick pan stir fry the bacon and let it cook until it turns pink. Now add the crab meat thinly sliced and stir for a few minutes with a wooden spoon until the bacon is golden and crisp.
Put the rice noodles in a large bowl, then season them with the bacon and crab meat, the salted peanuts, the sliced celery and the sliced green onion. Add the Greek yoghurt and the mayonnaise. Mix the noodles with your hands to season them evenly.
Just before serving, sprinkle the rice noodles with the nigella seeds or the sesame seeds, preferably the black ones for a nice colour contrast.
