Shrimp And Cheese Omelette

Shrimp And Cheese Omelette

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 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.

Shrimp And Cheese Omelette

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

Mr Breakfast would like to thank baseball27 for this recipe.

People are crazy. I eat an egg and salmon omelette daily. My favorite breakfast.

Never add water to eggs, instead add an extra egg and never, ever over-beat. The whites of the egg should show within the yolks, this gives the scramble or omelette an rich, moist texture.

I used left over old bay grilled shrimp as well as finely chopped grilled bacon to make this recipe... it was awesome! Thank you for posting your recipe.

I don't know why some people think that this recipe is horrible. Is it because I'm Portuguese? :D

Wow, the combination of egg and shrimp is horrible! I would definitely NOT suggest this to anybody, for any reason.

The recipe was great! I also added some chopped spinach and garlic sauteed in olive oil. Will definitely make it again. - Dan

Best omelette ever - the way you said to cook the omelette itself was a revelation to me as I always struggle to turn it over or to achieve perfect fluffiness ;) I sizzled the shrimp with mushrooms parsley and Cajun spice as someone suggested above - it was absolutely delicious!

I've been making Shrimp Omelets for a while now, and recently I found a new shredded cheese in my grocer's aisles. Fajita cheese. It really works well with the shrimp. I must confess, I like Cocktail Sauce on my Shrimp Omelet as well. :)

I enjoyed the combination, but next time I will add some kind of cajun seasoning for extra spice.

Great recipe. I added a little back pepper and jalepeno to spice it up. Instead of jack cheese, I used shredded mozzarella cheeze... mmm really tasty.

I used 1/4 lb each of rock shrimp and dungeness crab meat and added chopped jalapeno pepper (about 1 tbs). I sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on top of the finished omelette.

Shrimp is not just for dinner anymore! Very good. My 16 yr old son said it is delicious!

That's a very good point "W.T.S.". I'm trying to contact the recipe submitter to see if they left information out. In the meantime, I'd suggest taking 4 to 6 medium shrimp (shelled and cleaned) and butterfly them (cut 3/4 of the way through the shrimp - along the back vein; open shrimp to resemble a butterfly; sear the shrimp in hot oil for about 2 minutes on each side). Set them aside on a paper towel until ready to add to omelet.

Any one else have suggestions to make this omelet work?

From Where's the Shrimp?

How can you have a Shrimp Omelet without Shrimp? How much/many shrimp? Whole or cut up?
