Prawns omelette

Prawns omelette

Prawns, or shrimps, is my top favourite. I love it big or small and any way it’s cooked. Most of the time I like to make it a little spicy but this prawns omelette is one that is not spicy all all. If you like it spicy, you can add some chopped chilies to the egg mixture before frying, or some spicy chili oil. This omelette is soft, juicy and delicious.

This recipe is very simple, easy and quick. You can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or even any time when you are hungry.

3 eggs (beaten)
a small bowl of cooked prawns
4 spring onions (washed and cut)

Mix everything in a bowl

Frying the prawns omelette

Heat up some oil in a frying pan. It’s easier to use a non-stick pan here. Pour in all the egg and prawn mixture. Use medium heat. When the bottom is browned, flip over the omelette.

Flip over the prawns omelette

You need to push a wide spatula under the omelette with one hand and with the other hand holding the pan, do the flipping together. When the bottom turns brown, the omelette is cooked. Slide it into a clean plate and cut into pieces to serve. This prawn omelette is quite thick, soft, juicy and delicious. My children liked it very much. It goes great with rice.

Flipping the omelette over can be quite tricky. My children still can’t do it. If you have difficulty, you can fry in small pan and make smaller omelets. They may be thinner and smaller but will still taste as good.

I love omelette that has cheese on it. But prawns or shrimps are always welcome maybe with some feta cheese. :D

@Divina - Now I wonder how it taste with cheese on it. I wonder too whether to sprinkle powder cheese on it, grated cheese, crushed cheese or diced cheese.

It looks pretty simple to make, but yet it’s tough at the same time, I doubt I can perfect that flipping at all….I can’t cook at all =P

Mary  on March 12th, 2010

@Anncoo - Again….now you are torturing me….LOL. You make me feel like putting a huge lobster on this vermicelli dish!! :D

Giles, Anyone For Seconds?  on March 12th, 2010

Like so many recipes I have been reading recently, I’m coming across new things being added that I wouldnt have considered before and prawns in that yummy omelette is one of them - we make omelettes quite often for lunches at weekends so will give this a go :)

Thas  on March 12th, 2010

I love this omelette, never quite thought of making omelette with shrimp, very creative. I will try this, may be I would make it lil more spicy by adding chilly powder.

Mary  on March 13th, 2010

@Giles, Anyone For Seconds? - I can see you are going to have a new twist to your weekend lunch now :D Have fun cooking!

@Thas - Adding chilies or chili powder will spice it up and give you the kick. We usually dip it in chili sauce or drizzle over with chili oil. It gives the punch…ooooh! :P

tasteofbeirut  on March 13th, 2010

Simple but delicious! Why don’t I make this? I am just guilty of not cooking eggs enough!

Mary  on March 13th, 2010

@tasteofbeirut - Now you can start having fun cooking omelette …. very versatile, easy to cook and delicious. Omelette is top of my list when I’m lazy :P

[...] Dinner last night was made completely by my loving husband, Ryan! Realizing how frantic my schedule was becoming, he volunteered to make dinner this weekend. We found a recipe that he felt comfortable trying and tah-dah, his first “non-mac and cheese/ramen noodle” dinner was born! He’s helped out in the kitchen before, but this was the first time he’s been at the helm and his menu item of choice: a prawn omelette, found here: http://www.keeplearningkeepsmiling.com/2010/03/10/juicy-prawns-omelette/ [...]
