Guide for Jay Fai Crab Omelette:

  1. Heat oil between 350F to 375F in pot for frying.
  2. Crack 3 eggs in medium size bowl and 2 eggs in small bowl. Whisk both. Set the 2 eggs bowl aside.
  3. In the bowl with 3 eggs, combine cornstarch and crab in the mix.
  4. When oil is ready, pour crab mix in oil. Try to place the crab in the center as much as possible.
  5. Let sit for 1-2 minutes then fold. Try to make a burrito shaped omelet with your 2 spatulas.
  6. Keep cooking and shaping the omelette. Squeeze all the sides to get it firm, roll the omelette as needed to brown all sides.
    • Pro Tip: I used the sides of the pot a lot to help press the omelet firm.
  7. When it starts to get slightly brown, start using the 2 whisked eggs you set aside to pour egg on any of the holes (the seam at the fold, the ends as well)
    • Pro Tip: Little is needed to pour in the holes, use the spatula to keep the runny egg in place so that it seals better.
  8. Keep cooking until golden brown, then place on paper towel to drain and excess oil.
  9. Plate and enjoy!
