Broccoli and Smoked Salmon Omelette


I said to Jan, "I'll cook breakfast tomorrow, what would you like?"
Her reply was "Broccoli and Smoked Salmon Omelette please"

So, this is what she will have: -
Ingredients
For One
1 tbsp olive oil
100g Tenderstem® Broccoli, each piece cut into 3
Half a small red onion, finely sliced
3 large free-range eggs
Knob of butter
2 tbsp cream cheese
1 tbsp chopped chives
Salt and pepper
50g smoked salmon, cut into strips

Method
1. Heat the olive oil in a small non-stick frying pan (around 15cm diameter) and gently sauté the Broccoli and onion, until softened and onion starting to become golden. Remove from the pan and keep to one side.
2. While the onion and Broccoli are cooking, mix together the cream cheese and chopped chives. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Return the pan to the hob, increase the heat and add the butter. Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk together with a fork. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Once the butter is bubbling, add the eggs. Swirl around the pan and either using a fork or rubber spatula, stir around until the eggs are almost set. Spread to cover the surface and leave to continue cooking for a minute or so, until the top of the eggs are almost set, with just a little liquid on the surface.
5. Spoon the onion and Broccoli onto one half of the omelette. Add the cream cheese and finally lay over the salmon. Tilt the pan and carefully fold over the other half of the omelette on top of the filling. Slide onto a plate and serve with a green salad.

Tip... Fried bacon or chorizo are delicious alternatives to smoked salmon. You could also add a pinch of dried chilli flakes into the pan with the onion and Broccoli for a kick.

I do love omelettes but had never considered adding broccoli. Which is obviously a mistake.

As I do not eat seafood, I would swap some other meat for the salmon.

Martha said...

I would really enjoy this!

It's such a such a shame that smoked salmon has become prohibitively expensive. But it's good to discover ways of making a slice or two go further. I tend to use smoked salmon as sandwich treat so the meal becomes fairly expensive.
