Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Thai fish sauce
  • 2½ tsp brown sugar
  • 1 small red chilli, diced
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 100g bean sprouts
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 1 x 120g pack shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 100g white crab meat
  • 2 tbsp peanuts
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • mint, coriander and basil leaves

Step by step

  1. To make a dressing, whisk together the fish sauce, sugar, chilli and lime juice in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Bring a pan of water to the boil, blanch the bean sprouts for 1-2 minutes, refresh in cold water, then drain well.
  3. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a non-stick frying pan (about 20cm base diameter) over a medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for around 5 minutes, stirring regularly. Set aside.
  4. Beat the eggs with the turmeric in a large jug and season well with salt and black pepper. Return the frying pan to a medium heat and add 1 teaspoon of oil. Add half the egg mixture and swirl to coat the pan. Cook for 2 minutes or until almost set, then add half the mushrooms and half the crab to one side and fold over to form a half-circle. Slide onto a warm plate and repeat the process again for the second omelette, adding an extra 1 teaspoon of oil first.
  5. Chop the peanuts roughly; scatter over each omelette with the bean sprouts, spring onions and herbs. Drizzle with the dressing to finish.
