Jonah Crab and Asparagus Frittata

Jonah Crab and Asparagus Frittata
Serves 6-8


8oz Jonah Crab meat
8 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp fresh tarragon or basil
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cups asparagus
2 Tbsp water
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 Tbsp parsley, chopped


  1. Preheat broiler
  2. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, Parmesan cheese, tarrago or basil, black pepper, and salt.
  3. Heat oil over medium heat in a large broilerproof skillet, such as a large cast iron, add the onion and garlic. Cook for about 2 minutes or until fragrant.
  4. Add asparagus and water. Cover and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until asparagus is tender. Drain and discard any liquid remaining in the skillet.
  5. Evenly sprinkle the crab and bell pepper over asparagus. 
  6. Pour egg mixture over vegetables and crab in the skillet. Cover over medium heat.
  7. Ad the mixture starts to set run a spatula around the edge of the skillet, lifting mixture to ensure the uncooked portion flows underneath and gets cooked. Continue doing this until the egg mixture is almost fully set. 
  8. Place skillet under the broilers 4-5 inches from the heat. Broil 1 to 2 minutes or until top is just set. Alternatively to broiling, you can preheat your oven to 400 degrees and cook for about 5 minutes. All ovens are different!
  9. Cut into wedges, sprinkle with parsley and serve with your favorite hot sauce!
