aligue fried rice

It’s been awhile since I had aligue (read: crab fat). The last time I believe was more than 10 years ago at this Pinoy restaurant at the Shangri-La Mall.  I also had a friend back in the days who would eat her freshly cooked white rice with a teaspoon of aligue (straight from the bottle) then finish it off with a squeeze of lemon.

Aligue fried rice is a good match for fried pork or even bbq chicken.
