My good friend, Ruth, who I've known since our sons were in the first grade together, is now a snowbird. She lives near Lake Superior on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and she and her husband escape the terrible snowy weather there in the winter by coming back to AZ for a few months every year. When she does, we have a standing breakfast/lunch date at Mimi's Cafe. Last Friday, we met there at 12:30 and left around 5:00. I'm sure that the wait staff loved us! Ha Ha!
A nice thing about Mimi's is that they serve delicious food with a French flair and you can get breakfast all day long if you like. This time I ordered their 3 Egg Smoked Salmon Omelette. It seemed like it could stand up as lunch fare, even though it was in the breakfast section of the menu, and it did not disappoint. Since Salmon is one of my most favorite foods ever, it was a no brainer that I would order that omelette when I saw it on the menu!
The next day, I couldn't get that salmon omelette off my mind, so I decided to see If I could make my own version of it for dinner that night for my husband and I. My version also did not disappoint! The only thing I had to go to the store to pick up was the smoked salmon. I used this brand...
...but there are many varieties out there. I liked that it is deli sliced because I was able to lay a nice layer of salmon evenly into the omelette. Also, the secret ingredient in this recipe is Parmesan Cheese that adds that little salty boost to the eggs. I know that many people are against using cheese with fish, but I find that Parmesan and salmon go together very well! Give it a try!
Now, here are a few omelette making tips:
This recipe is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner! The smokey salmon flavor was so delicious yet subtle combined with the other ingredients! At Mimi's, they served it with a muffin! I had blueberry! It was big and Ruth and I split it. It was the perfect accompaniment. These would also be great! Bon Appetit!
