Smoked Salmon Omelette

Recipe from Kitchen Secrets by Raymond Blanc.

Preparation: 2 minutes.

Cooking time: 3 minutes.

Special equipment: 20cm Hard anodized frying pan/skillet.


Ingredients Required

3 Medium organic/free range eggs
1 pinch Sea salt
1 pinch Freshly ground black pepper
5g Unsalted butter, plus a little extra melted butter to serve
30g Smoked salmon slices
2 sprigs Chives, finely chopped to serve

Cooking Method

In a large bowl, gently beat the eggs together using a fork (*1) with a pinch each of salt (*2) and pepper.

In the omelette pan, heat the butter until it begins to foam. Pour in the egg mixture and cook undisturbed for a few seconds, allowing the omelette to set lightly before stirring the set part in towards the centre. Repeat this motion 4 or 5 times until the omelette has formed but is still soft and creamy in the centre. This way you will achieve the perfect texture.

Scatter the pieces of salmon in the middle of the omelette and then fold the sides towards the centre. Turn the omelette out onto a warmed plate, (*3) brush with a little melted butter and sprinkle with snipped chives to serve.
