Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat broiler. In a bowl whisk together the first six ingredients (through salt).

  • Heat oil in a large broilerproof skillet over medium heat; add the onion and garlic. Cook 2 minutes. Add asparagus and the water. Cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until asparagus is tender. Drain and discard any liquid remaining in the skillet.

  • Evenly sprinkle the crab and roasted peppers over asparagus. Pour egg mixture over vegetables and crab in skillet. Cook over medium heat. As mixture sets, run a spatula around edge of skillet, lifting egg mixture so uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking and lifting edges until egg mixture is almost set (surface will be moist).

  • Place skillet under the broiler 4 to 5 inches from heat. Broil 1 to 2 minutes or until top is just set. (Or preheat oven to 400°F; bake about 5 minutes or until top is set.)

  • Cut into wedges. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with hot sauce.
