Shari’s Shrimp Omelette

Shrimp Omelette

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup shrimp, cooked, peeled and deveined.
  • 1/8 cup mushrooms
  • 1/8 cup tomatoes
  • 1/8 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/8 cup parmesan cheese

Toppings:

  • 2 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp chopped green onions

Saute the mushrooms, and tomatoes and shrimp (if cold) just enough to soften and warm them, transfer to a small bowl.  In a medium bowl, lightly beat the eggs.  Put the butter in a non-stick skillet and when the butter stops foaming, add the eggs, pulling the sides in towards the center as the eggs begin to set, allowing the remaining egg to fill the pan.  once the eggs begin to set up, sprinkle the cheese on the eggs and then top with the shrimp, mushrooms, and tomatoes.  When the cheese is melted and the eggs are cooked to your liking, fold and serve the omelet or turn out by sliding out onto a plate, catching the leading edge with the plate and then lifting the pan and folding the omelet back onto itself. Top with sour cream and chopped green onions.

Yield: 1 serving

Gray: This is a recipe that I created from a dish that we had while on vacation in Oregon.  It was a menu item at a Shari’s Restaurant.  It was outstanding, and I suggest you try it if you are in an area that has a Shari’s location.  This is a great way to use up leftover shrimp.  (Actually it is a great excuse to make a few more than you need so you can make this dish.)  The measurements are approximate, so feel free to play with it.  This is an outstanding dish that is simple to make but can be very fancy at the same time.  It is definitely a treat.  Enjoy!

Katie: I had trouble thinking of shrimp in an omelette, but when Gray tried it at Shari’s, it was so good. I hadn’t thought of that omelette in quite some time, but when he suggested trying to replicate it, I was all for it. I think his version was actually better, and you can adjust the ingredients to how you like them. This one is delicious!
