Hokkaido Seafood Egg Scramble

This seafood egg scramble was inspired by some lovely crabmeat from Hokkaido that I picked up at our local market. The eggs are blended with cream, salt and pepper to create a fluffy and perfectly spiced combination  The crabmeat is then sautéed in butter and the egg mixture is mixed in.  The eggs are cooked on a medium low heat to prevent burning.  After the eggs are plated the eggs are topped with sour cream, green onion and caviar.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 50g Crabmeat with shells removed
  • 1 1/2 TBSP Fresh Half and Half Cream
  • 1/2 TBSP salted butter
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Optional Toppings:

  • 1 tsp fresh Sour Cream
  • Black Caviar
  • Green onion grass

 

Instructions:

  • Whisk together the eggs, cream, salt and pepper and set aside.

  • Sauté the crabmeat in a small skillet in the butter over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until the crab is broken apart and the butter is absorbed into the meat.

  • Slowly pour the egg mixture over the crabmeat. Stir gently to distribute the meat.

  • Cook the eggs over medium heat stirring occasionally.  Do not overcook – the eggs should be yellow and not browned.

  • Once the eggs are congealed, immediately remove from the heat and plate.  Serve.  Top with green onion grass, sour cream, and a dollop of black caviar.

Notes:

  • If you like some heat, try these eggs with some hot sauce.  Chopped shrimp can or scallops can be used in place of crab.
  • Don’t brown the eggs.  Cook them over medium heat and stir often.  Plate them while they are a little runny and they will firm up on the plate.
