Flavorful Omelette with Spicy Shrimp Salad and Fresh Coriander

I think it's wonderful to start the day with a breakfast omelette. To be honest, I have eggs for breakfast probably four times per week. I love eggs! I am very grateful for all the recent research that has shown just how healthy eggs really are. Eggs are packed with nutrition and vitamins, and they keep you satiated for ages! I once read about research which revealed that people who ate one egg in the morning lost more weight than those who didn't have any eggs. Interesting - these findings suit my life style perfectly and I feel great after eating eggs!

This recipe is fantastic for those of you who follow the LCHF diet (low carbohydrates and high fat diet). For the rest of you, the dish is simply delicious and full of savory loveliness! If you're feeling brave, feel free to add more heat to the dish - your threshold of pain is the only limit! The shrimp salad can handle quite an amount of chili due to the contrasting mayo, sour cream and cream cheese. So just go for it. I stir the chili into the shrimp salad but I also use it as garnish.


Flavorful Omelette with Spicy Shrimp Salad and Fresh Coriander


2 servings

Ingredients:

150 gr medium-sized shrimp
2 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp  mayo
2 tbsp cream cheese
3 tbsp grated cheese (optional)
1 red chili
1 tbsp chili sauce
2 tsp sambal oelek (optional)
1 tbsp fresh coriander
4 egg
1 tsp water
Salt and pepper





Break the eggs into a bowl, add a tsp of water and whisk together with a fork. Season with salt and pepper.




Stir together the sour cream, mayo and cream cheese. Chop the chili finely and add 2/3 to the mixture (save the rest for garnish). Then add the shrimp, chili sauce, sambal oelek and grated cheese. Mix well together.



Melt the butter in a pan. Pour the eggs into the pan and move around so the eggs come loose from the edges while they cook. When the omelette is almost cooked, spoon the shrimp salad over one half and fold the other half over, creating an envelope.




Garnish with the remaining chili and some fresh coriander.

This Sunday just turned into a feast!
