Shrimp And Cheese Omelette

(1 serving)

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped cooked shrimp
  • 3 Tablespoons shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon sliced green onions
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • green onions - optional
  • additional cooked shrimp - optional
Combine eggs and water, beating with a wire whisk; set mixture aside

Heat an 8-inch omelet pan or nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Add butter, and rotate pan to coat bottom. Pour egg mixture into pan. As mixture starts to cook gently lift edges of omelet with a spatula, and tilt pan so that uncooked portion flows underneath.

Sprinkle half of omelet with shrimp and next 3 ingredients, and fold in half. Transfer omelet to a serving plate. Garnish with whole shrimp, an extra sprinkle of cheese and green onions, if desired. Serve immediately.

If you haven't tried a shrimp omelette, you really should. The flavor and texture blends so well with eggs and cheese.
