1 large omelet


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 small potato, peeled and diced

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¼ pound fresh crabmeat, drained and flaked

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 small tomato, diced

  • 1 (1.5 ounce) box raisins

  • ¼ cup peas

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry potato in hot oil until fork-tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer potatoes to a plate lined with paper towels, leaving excess oil in the skillet.

  2. Return the skillet to medium heat. Cook onion and garlic in oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Add crab to the skillet and season with salt and pepper; stir. Cover the skillet and cook for 2 minutes. Stir tomatoes into mixture and cook another 2 minutes. Add raisins, peas, and red bell pepper; stir and cook another 2 minutes.

  3. Pour eggs over mixture in the skillet. Cook until eggs set, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip omelet and cook 1 minute more. Transfer to a plate and serve hot with potatoes.
