Crab Omelet

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Millereg

It seems that I often have crabmeat left over after making crab cakes or other crab dishes. This is a great way to use it up the following morning. This recipe can be halved.

This is quite good. I tried it with left-over sole and I put in a little chopped shrimp just for good measure. I think this recipe lends itself well to just about any mild-flavoured fish or shellfish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the flaked crabmeat with the cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl with the water and salt and pepper.
  3. Melt the butter in a small skillet and when the froth subsides, pour in the eggs.
  4. Place the crab and cheese on top of the eggs just when the eggs are beginning to set.
  5. Pour on the cream while the eggs are still liquid and transfer under a hot broiler for a few minutes until the top is golden brown.
  6. Do not fold, but slide on to a hot plate and serve immediately.
