Fish Omelette : For Lunch, Tea or Supper !

How about a white fish omelette for lunch, tea or supper, it's healthy, nutritious and great tasting ...

Here's how it's done:

Serves Two
(Preparation Time About 20 minutes)
300ml milk
300ml water
3 bay leaves
1 onion, sliced
6 black peppercorns
275g white fish fillet
6 eggs
20g unsalted butter
50ml cream
2 tablespoon dill chopped
2 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
100g Persian feta, crumbled


Poached Fish:
1. Mix the milk with 300ml of water together, pour it into a large shallow pan and bring to the boil.
2. Add the bay leaves, onion slices and peppercorns and bring back to the boil.
3. Add the white fish and simmer gently. Poach for about 3-4 minutes, until the fish is cooked.
4. Lift the fish out on to a plate and leave until cool, then break into flakes, discarding any skin and bones.

1. Pre-heat the grill to high.
2. Whisk the eggs together with some seasoning.
3. Heat a 23-25cm non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, then add the butter and swirl it around to coat the base and sides of the pan.
4. Pour in the eggs and, as they start to set, drag a wooden spoon over the base of the pan, lifting up little folds of egg to allow the uncooked egg to run underneath.
5. When the omelette is set underneath but still very moist on top, sprinkle over the flaked fish and feta.
6. Pour the cream on top, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and put the omelette under the hot grill until lightly golden brown.
7. Slide it on to a warmed plate and serve.

Now sit down, relax and enjoy ...
I wonder may you have it for lunch, tea or supper?

My husband might like this, but fish and eggs just don't sound good together to me. He's got me always on the lookout for new recipes though, so I may try this one.
