Crab Omelette is a little extravagant. However, when you have tried the succulent fresh crab meat with a soft omelette it will become a favourite. The scallions add a little crunch while the chile pepper gives a lovely mild heat. Nothing overpowers any other ingredient making this a superb breakfast or brunch full of balanced flavour. Let face it, you can cook enough for 4 people in only 10 minutes. Ideal for those in a rush who still want a flavoursome dish. This is one of those dishes that must be experienced as the textures and flavours are a perfect combination.

A little extravagance is a good thing and fresh crab meat in an omelette is definitely worth it. The softness of the crab compliments the omelette perfectly.
