From the Sea Omelet with Hollandaise Sauce
It seems like whenever I cook with a large package of crab the night before I always have leftover crabmeat that usually sits in the fridge and goes bad. It’s not quite enough to use in another dish but enough I don’t have the heart to throw it away. So on a sunny morning when you’re craving something different this recipe is for you!! The crabmeat and eggs mix perfectly with the parsley, chives and sauce, ensuring you will definitely want this again.
