Hi Guys! I’m here for another fun and easy egg-citing recipe. Prawn Omelette. This is more like an open faced omelette, no rolling or folding needed. We’re serving the omelette open so that we can fully appreciate those lovely sautéed fresh juicy tomato and prawns. Why hide something so beautiful and delicious, show it off!
I used prawn because I love seafood, but if you are not a seafood lover then feel free to swap cooked shredded chicken for prawn. I you want to keep it vegetarian, use mushroom instead to replace the meat. Mushroom gives a nice meaty texture and is often used for vegan cooking as substitute for meat. You can also add handful of spinach for a touch green.
What’s In an Egg?
Yolk is the yellow portion of the egg and this is full of nutrients, vitamins and fats. Those who are watching their diet normally avoid the egg yolk because of the fat content. Then we have the White which is packed with protein and water, the healthy part of the egg. Have you noticed, there is a white strand floating somewhere in the mix? I thought before this is part of the egg white, but it seems this is actually part of what makes up the egg. This is called the chalazae. It anchors the yolk to the white and to the inside of the shell, keeping the yolk suspended.
How to Store Egg
- Always keep eggs in the carton. the carton protects the eggs and prevents them from absorbing strong odors and flavors of other foods in your fridge through the thousands of tiny pores in the egg shell. Secondly, the Best Before Date is always visible to you so you can guarantee freshness. Lastly, eggs should always be stored with the large end up, the same way they are packaged in the carton. This helps the yolk remain centered.
- Eggs should not be stored on the refrigerator door, but in the main body of the refrigerator to ensure that they keep a consistent and cool temperature.
- Leftover raw egg whites and yolks should be put in airtight containers and stored in the refrigerator immediately. To prevent yolks from drying out, cover them with a little cold water. Drain the water before using.
- When storing hard boiled eggs, you may notice a “gassy” odor in your refrigerator. The odor is caused by hydrogen sulphide, which forms when eggs are cooked. It’s harmless and usually dissipates in a few hours.
Ingredients for Prawn Omelette
- Eggs – Take the egg out of the refrigerator at least 15 minutes before using to bring it to room temperature. Warm egg beats better, the white and the yolk combines together easily.
- Olive Oil – This can be substituted with any flavorless oil
- Onion – I used yellow onion, white or red will work too
- Salt & Black Pepper – Add less or more to suit your preference
- Red Chili Flakes – If you do not like it hot, you can skip this
- Oregano – if you have fresh herbs, that will be a better option or you can also use other dried herbs like Basil, Italian Seasoning or Parsley. Fresh chives or green onion is a nice option too
- Cherry Tomato – Cut into half. You can also use vine tomato or any large tomato just dice it into small pieces
- Garlic – not a fan or garlic? skip it, no big deal
- Prawn or Shrimp – If you can get hold of Prawn, that is a better option but shrimp is as good as well. I used cooked shrimp but fresh one can be used too. Saute until the shrimp is no longer translucent
I love spicy dishes, but if you don’t simply cut back on the peppers, but season generously to avoid bland dish.
