Crabmeat Omelette with Spring Onions and Chili

Have been quite busy with the start of my Swedish lessons and our dog in Singapore went missing on Saturday. After 4 days of crying and praying, he is finally reunited with my family in Singapore and just in time to celebrate my sister's birthday and Whisky's (our dog) birthday on 30 October :)

So now I am in the mood to cook and put up blog postings again! This was for lunch today, quite easy to make but totally fragrant. I would suggest you boil up a crab and extract the meat yourself rather than buy ready-made crab meat, they are not that nice I think. Of course, extracting the crab meat takes time and skills, but you can just freeze them and use it whenever you need.

Crab meat (About 4 tablespoons)
Crab roe ( About 2 tablespoons, optional and only if you like them and manage to buy a female crab)
3 eggs, beaten
1 spring onion, sliced lengthwise
1 fresh chili, unseeded and sliced lengthwise
1 medium size onion, halved and sliced thinly
Soy sauce and pepper to taste


  1. Boil up the crab and extract the meat accordingly. Keep the roe if the crab comes with it, they add a nice fragrance to the omelet.
  2. Heat up about 3 tablespoons of cooking oil in a small/medium size frying pan until hot, add in the thinly sliced onions and chili. Stir fry it until the onions turn soft and you can smell the fragrance.
  3. Add in the spring onions, stir-fry for about 20 seconds, then add in the crab meat and roe and spread evenly in the pan.
  4. Beat up the eggs in a bowl, add in soy sauce and pepper to taste, then pour it over the mixture in the pan, ensuring it covers the mixture.
  5. Don't turn the omelet over too early, keep a close watch on it. Once you see the egg begins to set, turn the omelet over to fry the other side until it turns a nice golden brown. Serve hot, it can be one of the dish in your meal or just go with rice, it's delicious!
