SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH CRABMEAT

Certain food combinations go together well, like in the Far East for example, where scrambled eggs with crabmeat are very popular.  I make scrambled eggs with crabmeat and the crowd goes wild, it is that good. Bacon and eggs are popular, but they who have eaten scrambled eggs with crabmeat praise that luscious dish. Gently scrambled eggs with crabmeat are a beautiful marriage of two subtle tastes. The soft texture of crabmeat with creamy eggs leads to a magnificent, flavourful taste sensation.

I was certainly reminded of this succulent seafood situation in the supermarket recently. On aisle 3, I usually buy a couple tins of brislings while my BW (the Education Tipster) gets some canned albacore. In the same area there was a can of crabmeat, similarly sized as the albacore. So we bought it to add to our scrambled eggs.

I know that fresh lump crabmeat is a quality food, but since we already like canned albacore why not give canned crabmeat a try? We loved it.

Get hold of some crabmeat and make eggs with it. It’s good groceries for sure, and not at all difficult. One important thing – avoid high heat when you cook this.

Scrambled Eggs with Crabmeat                                           serves 4

Ingredients

8 eggs
2 cans of crabmeat (6 ounces each)

3 green onions (scallions) chopped
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper (black is okay but white looks nicer)
3 drops of oriental sesame oil

¼ cup vegetable oil
1/8 teaspoon salt

A dash of either oriental oyster sauce or soy sauce

Method

  • Open crabmeats and put into a mixing bowl. Take a fork and lightly break up any oversize lumps.
  • Crack open the eggs into the bowl. Put in the next four ingredients.
  • Take one teaspoon of the ¼ cup of oil and add it to the egg mixture.
  • Break up the egg yolks and gently stir so as not to make the crabmeat too fine.

  • Heat a dry wok or skillet until hot.

  • When the pan is hot, make sure the flame is no longer high.
  • Add the remaining oil and the salt.
  • With the flame low, pour in the mixture. It should not sizzle.
  • Wait a few moments until you see the edges begin to get firm.
  • Now gently stir from edges to get eggs to run under.
  • Keep stirring thusly until entire mixture is cooked.

Serve right from the pan with the soy or oyster sauce added by diners as they choose.

Try this lovely, flavorsome, rapidly-made meal with the canned crabmeat or if you prefer, the fresh. Many consider crabmeat on a par with lobster. See what you think.

I'd love it I know. Crab is one of my favorite things to eat. It's crazy expensive in our shops right now. I miss the days of living in Annapolis when it was more readily available. Have you had eggs benedict with crab? Replace the muffin with a friend green tomato and we're talking perfection : )

Susan Oloier said...

I never would have thought of the two together. Though, reading your post makes it sound really good.
Thanks for following Zane, by the way. It means so much to us.

BragonDorn said...

At first I thought this sounded nasty but I am having second thoughts now. I might just have to try this Friday morning. I will pick up what I need tomorrow.

anthony stemke said...

MY JOURNEY WITH CANDIDA: Thank You for your kind words. I don't know anything about tweeter so I cannot comment.
Best wishes on your alkaline regimen.

CAY SERA: Thank You Cay, and Happy New Year to you.

MALLI: It is delicate and flavourful. My BW loves the albacore white tuna. I do too but really love brisling sardines, the very tiny ones. And the canned crabmeat is right nearby.

KALYANI'S PLATTER: Thank You, it is.

JOYCE: If you live near the chesapeake you are lucky. Otherwise crabmeat is high. But I must say: the canned crabmeat is priced only a little higher than the albacore tuna and we loved it.
I had eggs benedict for breakfast at Brennan's in New Orleans with Canadian bacon and Hollandaise sauce, but no, never with crab.
Thanks for calling.

SUSAN OLOIER: That's why I wanted to mention it, I never thought of it till recently either and wouldn't have paid the price for fresh crabmeat, but the canned was affordable and delicious.
We are very fond of Zane, Susan, and he is in our prayers. With his inner strength we feel he can be a success in life and a great source of pride to you. We know how hard you work to help Zane and so does our heavenly Father. We are honoured to know he and you.

BRAGONDORN: Don't get the "nasty" connection but try it,you'll love it.

JEAN: Thanks for those kind words.

I copied the url and pasted to bring up the site but I need some flashplayer and every time I try to install it, it is no dice. Thanks for thinking of me though.

I remember that song when it was new. Many people when they first heard of the Beatles thought they were a German band.


JOANNE: Oh yeah - easy to fix and quite delicious.

Torviewtoronto said...

delicious looking combination lovely flavour with the sauce

LoLy said...

You are so lucky, I wish here we had the same rules about smoking in restaurants.. Well, at least Now you know about my part of the world, or at least you know about the food :p I would never NEVER go there again XD

Leovi said...

Scrambled eggs with crab meat ... I never would have imagined, but I do and must be very good.

Jean said...

Dear Anthony, I put your blintz entry on "Pinterest" and I immediately got a person marking it as a like! :)
Your website is on there. Hope that is OK!

anthony stemke said...

WORDS OF DELICIOUSNESS: Once you try it you'll keep a can of crabmeat on hand to make it often.

TORVIEWTORONTO: Thanks, I agree.

LOLY: I know that you like to discover new places all the time,so I suppose a certain percentage of restaurants will be thumbs down. I wish you good luck on next foray. I am ignorant re: :p and XD, but I like reading about Dubai. Take care.

LEOVI: I never would have either but now I love it. Canned crabmeat is reasonably priced so is easy to enjoy.

JEAN: I'm sure it's ok. The only thing I know is "Facebook", which my spouse set up for me. I asked her about pinterest and she didn't now about it, although one of her friends did.
I appreciate what you did Jean and am always happy to hear from you.
Best wishes to you.

Manzanita said...

I thought I left a comment on this but I guess I didn't or sometimes I leave before it goes through. Me... always in a rush. Ha
Your recipes and the stories are wonderfully inviting. I like the way you bring your family into the stories and give us a kind of travelogue. I don't know where you live but you must have spent time in other countries and invested in their cuisine.
This egg and crabmeat looks and sounds perfect for company brunch.
Thanks

Lizzy said...

Oh, gosh, what an outstanding combination! I need an excuse to make these yummy eggs :)

Thanks for your kind words regarding my aunt. Much appreciated~

LoLy said...

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT :(
it means the world to me right now , I pray i will find them :(
Thank you dear

The Golden Eagle said...

It sounds good! :)

anthony stemke said...

MANZANITA: I appreciate your sweet, kind words, Thank You for that.
I live in northeast Georgia (USA) but have been around a little.
The egg and crabmeat is a wonderful brunch, many were unaware of this combination.

LIZZY: Not eating this delicious dish wouls be inexcusable cm.
Try it you will love it.

LOLY: Losing a pet is terrible, having one stolen maybe even worse.
Here in USA you can get dogs at dog-pounds in every county. Stealing anothers is low-down and dirty. Hope you filed a report with local police (not that it would probably do any good but you never know) Justice is rare, hope you get some.
You are certainly welcome.

THE GOLDEN EAGLE: Tastes even better. Thanks.
