What You Need to Make This Shrimp Omelette
I love this shrimp omelette recipe because it is easy to make and everyone around me loves it as much as I do. Here is everything you need.
- Shrimp – cooked and deveined. Make sure there is no shell left.
- Sea Salt
- Black Pepper
- Olive oil
- Lemon Juice
- Mixing bowls
- Non-stick skillet
How To Make a Shrimp Omelette
The shrimp omelette recipe is pretty straightforward. The recipe for the mango salsa is even easier. It all comes together in less than thirty minutes.
Make sure to have all ingredients and tools available before you start cooking. The eggs burn quickly, so you want to make sure you are ready to keep an eye on them.
To start, make the mango salsa first so the flavors can marinate while you are preparing the omelette. In a mixing bowl, combine the mango, jalapeno, onion, a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice.
Toss to combine and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Keep in the fridge until you are ready to serve it.
After that, whisk the eggs, salt, and pepper until frothy.
Heat a medium non-stick skillet to medium heat and drizzle with olive oil.
When the oil is hot, add the egg mixture and cook. Using a spatula, push the edges in as they settle. Cover and cook for about a minute or two. The omelette is done when set on the bottom and slightly wet on top.
Place shrimp on one-half of the cooked eggs.
Using a spatula, flip the other side on top of the shrimp. Turn the heat off and slide the omelette onto a plate.
Top with the mango salsa and serve immediately.
What else can I add to the shrimp omelette?
I kept this recipe simple because the mango salsa has a lot of flavors and I didn’t want it to clash with other ingredients as much. However, if you think it is a bit plain, you can add cream cheese, chives, or onions.
What type of shrimp should I use?
I used cleaned, cooked, and deveined shrimp for this recipe. You can do all of that yourself, or simply buy a bag of frozen shrimp. For my omelette, I used medium shrimp, but small (salad) shrimp will work even better.
- 3 large eggs
- 2-3 medium shrimp cooked and deveined
- 1 tbsp mango chopped into small pieces
- ½ tbsp jalapeño chopped into small pieces
- 1 tbsp white onion chopped
- 1 tsp garlic chopped
- 1 tbsp cilantro minced
- 1 tsp sea salt divided
- 1 tsp black pepper divided
- In a mixing bowl whisk the eggs half of the salt and half of the pepper. Whisk until frothy.
- Preheat the non-stick pan to medium heat and drizzle with olive oil. Add the shrimp pieces and cook for a minute or two until heated up.
- Add the eggs and cook for about 5-10 minutes. Using a spatula push the eggs as they settle. Transfer the flat omelette to a plate.
- In a mixing bowl combine the mango, jalapeno, onion, cilantro, sea salt, black pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice. Toss to combine.
- Fold the omelette in two and garnish with the mango salsa. Serve immidiately.
