Crab Omelette with Cream of Truffle Omelette goes fantastically well with truffles. With the crab meat left over from my previous adventure on Buddha Jumps Over The Wall, I am making a crab omelette.

What is unusual about this dish is that I not only topped it with some cream of truffles, but also Japanese dried fish shavings called Katsuobushi (鰹節 or かつおぶし). Katsuobushi is so thin and light, it moves with the rising heat of a freshly prepared dish, providing stunning visual effects.
