Crab Meat or Shrimp Omelette

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by WaterMelon

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!
