Total Time15 mins
Keyword: omelet, thai crab omelet
Servings: 2


  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ tsp ground white pepper
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 150 grams cooked crab meat
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
  • Coriander roughly chopped, to serve
  • Spring onion (scallions), sliced, to serve
  • Thai sriracha chili sauce, to serve


  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs, pepper, and fish sauce until just combined.
  • Stir in the crab meat.
  • Fill a saucepan to about 1/3 capacity with vegetable oil and place it over high heat. You can tell that the oil is hot enough when you dip a wooden spoon into it and it forms small bubbles (at about 325° F or 165° C).
  • Prepare two spatulas and a baking tray lined with paper towels.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the oil and use the spatulas to push and squeeze the mixture into a tight cylinder (you may need some practice here).
  • Once the omelet turns golden, transfer it to the baking tray and blot with more paper towels.
  • Place the omelet onto a serving plate and top with the chili and herbs. Serve with the chili sauce.
