    WaterMelon's Note:

    I bought a package of frozen crabmeat and was looking for ways to use it up, since I was too lazy to make crabcakes. This is a very simple dish - I served it as a side for dinner, but I imagine it would be wonderful for breakfast/brunch too!

      This was so good and so easy! I had some leftover crab and was looking for a way to use it for a low-carb/Atkins/Paleo diet breakfast. I didn't have any scallions, chilis, or canola oil (just used sesame oil). Still delish! Thanks!

      Omelet with an Oriental flair! I had never tried making an omelet in the wok before. Really liked the cooking method. It was simple and made a very pretty presentation. The only thing I changed, was added some fresh sliced mushrooms to the onion mixture. Something I am sure to do again.

      This WAS dinner at our house. While we both enjoyed the sesame oil/soy sauce twist, Dh was went on and on about how much he liked the omlette. Apparently it really hit the spot for him. I've never tried an omlette in a wok before. It was so easy to do and made such an attractive presentation that I'll certainly make more future omlettes in a wok. I made 2 and would offer the observation that the more evenly the egg mixture is spread around and up the sides of the wok, the prettier the finished omlette.
