Mark Sargeant's fresh crab omelette
  • Serves: 1
  • Prep: 5mins
  • Cook: 5mins

Try this seafood delight with great, fresh flavours. A simple and delicious protein-filled recipe complete with the soft, delicate, sweet taste of fresh crab combined with the mild and warm taste of dill. 




  • Small knob butter
  • 3 large British Lion eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp chives, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp dill, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp brown crab meat (prawns work too)
  • 4 tbsp white crab meat (prawns work too)
  • Green salad to serve (optional)


  1. Whisk the eggs, seasoning, herbs and brown crab meat (or prawns, if using) in a small bowl, then melt a small amount of butter in a large, flat, non-stick pan.
  2. Place over a medium-hot heat and when the pan is hot pour in the egg mixture and swill around the pan using a spatula to lightly scramble the eggs, so that the cooked egg comes to the top. Swirl again so you have a large, even, circle shape, filling the gaps in the pan with the uncooked egg. Loosen the edges of the omelette with the spatula.
  3. Scatter the fresh white crab meat or prawns over the egg and when the egg is almost cooked and the underside is very lightly golden, fold the omelette in the pan then slip onto a warm plate and scatter with any remaining herbs. Serve with a fresh green salad.

#eggcelent way to start the weekend 
#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfridayPrawns are on the menu tonight !
