Aligue fried rice (Tagalog pronunciation: [ˈalɪgɛ]), also known as crab fat fried rice or aligue rice, is a Filipino fried rice dish cooked by stir-frying pre-cooked rice with crab fat (taba ng talangka or aligue), toasted garlic, spring onions, black pepper, rock salt, and optionally butter. It is traditionally a vivid orange-yellow color due to the crab fat. It can be combined with seafood like shrimp and squid and eaten as is, or eaten paired with meat dishes.[1]

It is a variant of sinangag (garlic fried rice) and is similar to bagoong fried rice, which uses bagoong (shrimp paste).
