Today I’m going to show you my scrambled eggs with crabs recipe. It’s a cooking quickie for your kitchen.

This egg dish is perfect for an extended breakfast or brunch. At the same time, it is a quick lunch or dinner.

Please get the North Sea crabs very fresh and process them promptly. Small shrimps are an alternative, but do not come close to the original taste of the North Sea inhabitants.

Then let’s get started right away. I hope you enjoy the instructions and my video 🙂 I wish you good luck!

1. Tips for Purchasing and Preparation

I have already written about scrambled eggs in detail elsewhere. If you are looking for variations on egg dishes, please click on the magic word in the first sentence.

Nevertheless, I will leave you with a few tips here:

We could of course talk more about quail eggs now, but I’d like to save that for another day, let’s get to the preparation quickly. After all, I promised a quick number!

Buy fresh crabs, organic eggs taste better, don’t forget herbs!
