Crab meat Omelette is a type of beaten egg preparation with crab meat. This is lightly fried using butter or oil. In the Philippines, this type of dish is referred to as “torta” and several different ingredients can be added with the egg. The more traditional method of preparation is adding the crab meat (or any ingredient that takes a short time to cook) with the eggs while whisking. The eggs and crabmeat will then be poured in the pan and be cooked at the same time.
There are many ways to cook an omelette and several ingredients can be mixed and matched. All we need is a little imagination and a good understanding on how each ingredient affects the taste of the entire dish. It’s always good to experiment.
