Red Curry Crab Noodles

This dish is a great "clean out your refrigerator" type of meal — in fact, that's literally how it came into existence. A bunch of miscellaneous leftovers from Sarah's review of Night + Market's cookbook turned magically into a super easy, endlessly customizable dish. Feel free to sub whatever you've got for the crab meat, btw — chicken, shrimp, pork, mushrooms, crispy tofu — it'll all be good.
