Seafood Omelette - with a creamy mix of garlic, fennel and chili


Omelettes are so quick, easy and tasty and come with so many variations ...

How about this 'for a fresh take on a fabulous, and ready-in-fifteen-minutes meal.' It's a 'seafood omelette, dressed in a creamy sauce, with garlic, fennel, and chili.' A very nice mix indeed ...

Ingredients:
Serves Two
2g carb per serving

2 tablespoons olive oil
5 oz. / 140 g cooked shrimp or seafood mix
1 red chili pepper
2 garlic cloves (optional)
½ teaspoon fennel seeds or ground cumin (if preferred)
½ cup / 120 ml
mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh chives
6 eggs
2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
salt and pepper to taste

If you may be feeling indulgent you could always swap the shrimp for canned lump crab meat ...

Instructions can be found at Diet Doctor site here


Chives ... The smallest and most delicate member of the onion family, chives are a popular herb used in European cookery. They have long, thin green blades that are hollow inside. They have a mild, grassy flavour similar to baby spring onions or young leeks. There is also an Asian variety of chive called Chinese chives, garlic chives or kuchai.

Buyer's guide:
Chives are in season in spring and summer. Fresh chives are widely available from supermarkets and garden centres.

Storage:
Keep fresh chives refrigerated for up to three days.

Preparation:
Snip chives with scissors instead of chopping them, and do not subject them to much cooking as they are delicate. Instead, use chives in garnishes, salads, egg mayonnaise sandwiches, vegetable stocks, soups, creamy sauces, potato dishes and omelettes, adding the herb to the dish just before serving. Purple-blue chive flowers are also eaten and used as a garnish.

Take out the seafood, and this sounds really yummy. Maybe replace it with some pulled pork... Mmmm.

I too am not fond of seafood, but I imagine one could substitute ham or chicken.
