Total time




  • 5-6 oz lump crab meat or crab claw, pasteurized. (You can use canned if you have a hard time finding it.

  • 3 green onions, finely chopped

  • 2 tbsp cilantro chopped, (save some for garnish if you wish as full leaves

  • 1 tbsp ginger, grated

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 tsp lime juice

  • salt and black pepper, to taste

  • hot sauce, optional ( I prefer siracha sauce)

  • 3 Eggs

  • 2 tbsp unsweetened coconut oil

  • Black Pepper

  • Non Stick Spray


  • Make the filling by combining the crab with the green onions, cilantro, ginger paste, soy sauce, lime juice, and paprika. Season with salt and pepper. If you wanted a spicy omelet you could also add a splash of hot sauce, siracha, at this point.
  • In a bowl, with whisk, lightly beat the eggs with the coconut milk, and black pepper.
  • Spray a skillet with non-stick spray, and add the egg mixture. Once the base has set, carefully pull the edges towards the center, allowing the unset egg to run underneath.
  • When the egg has set, spoon the crab mixture into the center of the omelet.
  • Fold over each side, and allow the crab to warm through. Cut in half and serve.
