I used to use Imitation Crab Meat (aka Crab Sticks) for this dish. Imitation Crab Meat is made of white fish paste, starch, sugar, egg whites and crab flavouring. These days I don’t use Imitation Crab Meat for cooking because I can’t find any good quality ones where I live, but you can use it if you like it. *Note: The black strips in the omelette in the photo are sliced Black Fungus.
