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...
- I don't know why we say "om-let" but spell it "omelette." Where did that extra "e" come from after the "m?" (Not a tip, but just an observation.)
- I like an omelette pan with rounded sides so that the omelette slides out easily. I use the small 8" fry pan from my regular cookware set.
- Heat up your pan and then add butter or cooking spray, whatever you prefer, after it is heated. This helps your pan to have a more non-stick surface.
- When you pour in the egg mixture, let it begin to cook and then gently lift and push the edges, allowing the raw eggs to flow beneath the edge so that they cook, too. Continue this all around the pan. You can gently rock the pan a little to move the eggs around evenly.
- When the omelette is getting close to being cooked through, but not quite, add your ingredients.
- When the eggs look set, but still soft, use a spatula to flip half of the omelette over onto the other side of itself. Let it cook like that for just a few seconds. Loosen it underneath with your spatula.
- Finally, slide the omelette out of the pan by lifting up the pan and tilting it above your plate. Use your spatula in assisting the omelette to slide out of the pan and onto your plate. Now you can top it with whatever you would like!
- You will notice that my omelette is brown on the outer side. That is because in this recipe I added some Parmesan cheese into the egg mixture and it browned more. Also, if you want your omelette to cook a bit more slowly, use a lower heat and a lid to help your eggs set.
