Bringing Thai street food into your own kitchen with this Fluffy Thai Crab Omelette recipe!

Recently, we rewatched Netflix original series Street Food’s episode on Bangkok, Thailand and we had to recreate this local favourite. It turned out reaaally good!

Crispy, fluffy egg omelette stuffed with chunks of fresh, juicy crab meat, served with our homemade sweet chili sauce. It’s a quick, easy egg recipe you wouldn’t want to miss.
