  • Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Melt a small piece of butter in a frying pan, spread it over the bottom with a spatula. Use vegetable oil as desired. Pour the egg-water mixture into a hot frying pan and spread it over the bottom. Arrange the chopped shrimps in a circle and in the center of the egg mixture.

Tips

  • How to defrost cooked shrimps? Put them into cold water for about 20 minutes. If you want to cook shrimps, defrost them and peel. Pull off the heads. Then take sharp scissors and cut along the middle back, leave the tail. At the end, rinse under running water, pull off the vein from the back. Fill a pot with water, add a pinch of salt and a little lemon juice. Bring the pot to a boil. Cook until the shrimps are pink. The cooking time is not more than 2 minutes!

  • The taste of your Shrimps and Cheese Omelette begins with the quality of your ingredients. Fresh, succulent shrimps, preferably sourced from a reputable local fishmonger, are a must. They impart a sweet, briny flavor that's a world apart from their frozen counterparts. As for the cheese, opt for a variety that melts well and complements the shrimps' flavor, such as gruyere or a good quality sharp cheddar. Fresh eggs are a given, and don't forget a blend of aromatic herbs for that final flourish.

  • It's crucial to clean and devein the shrimps before cooking. To enhance their flavor, consider marinating them in a mixture of olive oil, minced garlic, and a touch of chili flakes for a couple of hours. When it's time to cook, make sure your pan is hot enough before adding the shrimps. This will ensure they sear properly and remain juicy inside, instead of turning rubbery.

  • When it comes to omelettes, achieving that perfect fluffy texture lies in properly whisking the eggs. Use a fork or a whisk and beat the eggs until the yolks and whites are completely combined and the mixture has a light, airy texture. For a richer taste, you can add a dash of milk or cream to the egg mixture.

  • Choose a cheese that melts easily and has a flavor that complements the shrimps. Add it right after pouring the beaten eggs into the pan and before placing the sautéed shrimps. As the eggs cook, the cheese will melt, encapsulating the shrimps in a creamy, savory cocoon, resulting in a perfect blend of flavors.

  • Mastering the art of cooking an omelette is essential for this recipe. The key is medium to low heat to ensure the omelette cooks evenly without burning. Once you've poured in the egg mixture, let it cook undisturbed until it starts to set around the edges. Then, gently lift the edges with a spatula, tilting the pan to let the uncooked eggs flow underneath. This process helps in creating a tender, yet fully cooked omelette that is golden and slightly runny on the inside - the ideal bed for our shrimps and cheese.

Storage

  • The Shrimps and Cheese Omelette is a dish best served and consumed immediately after cooking to enjoy the perfect blend of the shrimps' freshness, the oozing melted cheese, and the fluffy, warm omelette. The contrast between the warm omelette and the cool, fresh herbs sprinkled on top is part of the sensory experience that this dish delivers. If you do have to store it, proceed with the following tips.

  • If you find yourself with leftovers, promptly refrigerate them to maintain their taste and safety. Allow the omelette to cool completely at room temperature, but don’t leave it out for more than two hours. Place the omelette in an airtight container to prevent it from absorbing odors from the refrigerator and to maintain its moisture. Properly stored, it should last in the refrigerator for up to two days. To reheat, use a skillet over medium heat or the microwave, making sure to heat it thoroughly.

  • While freezing is possible, it is not generally recommended for this dish. Freezing can alter the texture of the eggs and the shrimps, making them rubbery, and the cheese may separate and become grainy. However, if you still need to freeze it, let the omelette cool completely, then wrap it securely in plastic wrap followed by a layer of aluminum foil. This prevents freezer burn and preserves the omelette's flavor. Properly stored, it can last in the freezer for up to 2-3 months. When ready to eat, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight before reheating in a skillet or microwave.

Bon Appetit!
