Crab and Shrimp Omelette and Egg International Incident Party

Shrimp and Crab Omelette with a creamy sauce~







The Omelette
1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
3 eggs
2 teaspoons half and half or heavy cream
Salt
2 teaspoons unsalted butter

Preparation:
Combine the eggs, half & half and a pinch of salt, then whisk together.
Heat a skillet over medium heat and add butter.
When the skillet is very hot, add the egg mixture.
Cook without stirring, but gently tilt the skillet a little to allow the uncooked egg to run off.
Flip and cook the other side for 1 minute, then remove from skillet.
Put the filling in the center; fold, add more to the top and serve.
 
Filling:
4 oz of fresh lump crab meat
1/2 cup small shrimp ( I used frozen, thawed out)
1/4 cup heavy cream or substiture half and half but you will have to cook longer to reduce for thickness.
2 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Melt butter in a medium size fry pan, add heavy cream, add fish, spices, bring to a boil, reduce till a light creamy mixture forms. Add a few tablespoons to the center of omelette, more on top serve immediately.

Not too big on eggs. Guess that's because I'm not a breakfast or morning person. You sold me with this one Claudia!

Delightful...Love this omelet :)

Claudia said...

I've done a sort-of-similar-Julia Child thing with crab - but never with the shrimp. Loving the cayenne pepper for a little bit of heat with the creamy sauce. A winner - and an elegant egg dinner.

Claudia said...

Forgive me if you received the comment already - it disappeared and I don't know where it is! But did want you to know how luscious this is - I do something similar - with criab but loving the addition of shrimp. And the cayenne is perfect for a little heat with the creamy.

Rachel@Tasty Thailand said...

That looks absolutely incredible. I just looooove shrimp :)
