I often make myself an omelette for lunch. Sometimes I fill it with ham, mushroom and tomato. At other times I treat myself to an omelette with smoked salmon. I love the flavour of smoked salmon with capers, so I throw a few on top for flavour.
I used chopped chives with this omelette, but it would be super delicious with fresh dill also. That is the best thing about omelettes – just add your favourite flavours! The following is a recipe for one omelette – it’s easy to double, triple, or quadruple the ingredients to make two, three, or four omelettes.
For one omelette you will need –
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons sour cream
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon of fresh chives
A small dob of butter
15g of smoked salmon, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons of grated cheese
To top the omelette
40g smoked salmon
1/2 tsp of chopped capers
Sour cream and chives to garnish
Beat the eggs, sour cream, pepper and chives until just mixed.
Melt the butter in a small nonstick pan. Add the egg mixture and cook for one minute. Then sprinkle one half of the omelette with the chopped salmon and the grated cheese. Cook gently until almost cooked through, about two minutes.
Using a flexible spatula (or two), flip the bare omelette side over the side that has the salmon and cheese. Cook omelette for another minute or two, until cooked to your liking.
Arrange omelette on a plate, top with smoked salmon, a dollop of sour cream, capers and chopped chives.
