Crab and herb omelette

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 1 people

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp each finely chopped chives, tarragon and flat-leaf parsley
  • 20 gm butter
  • 10 ml olive oil
  • 100 gm picked crab meat
  • To serve: crusty bread and green salad
01   Whisk eggs and herbs in a bowl to combine, season to taste and set aside. Heat a 20cm-diameter omelette pan over medium-high heat. Add butter and oil, cook until foaming (1 minute), then add egg mixture and cook, pushing mixture into the centre of the pan with a wooden spoon as it cooks, and tipping pan to allow raw mixture to move onto exposed pan, until omelette is just beginning to set (2-3 minutes), then stand until omelette is almost set but still runny on top (20-30 seconds). Scatter crab meat over, season to taste, then tap pan on a hard surface to loosen omelette. Carefully roll omelette over with a spatula and onto a plate. Serve with crusty bread and a green salad.
