      About the Recipe


      This Shrimp Omelette recipe is my family-loved breakfast. If you think you can’t impress yours with eggs, this omelette recipe is sure to change that – especially if they love shrimp! 🙂

      What is the best season to make this recipe?

      This Shrimp Omelette can be enjoyed year-round. Period.

      What are the health benefits of this dish?

      Packed with protein from the eggs and shrimp, this breakfast or brunch dish provides a nutritious morning boost our bodies need.

      Shrimp is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health, while eggs offer essential vitamins and minerals.

      Additionally, the use of olive oil provides healthy fats, making this recipe a wholesome choice for a balanced diet.

      Where can I buy the required ingredients?

      You can find the ingredients for this recipe at your local grocery store or seafood market.

      Ensure the shrimp is fresh, or frozen at the peak of its quality, to enhance the overall flavor of your Shrimp Omelette.

      Can I substitute any of the ingredients?


      You can substitute the shrimp with other seafood options such as crab or lobster for a luxurious twist.

      Additionally, you may experiment with different spices and herbs such as dill, parsley, and cilantro which provide a nice unique flavor to this dish.

      I love adding spring onions, but I also enjoy serving it with chopped cilantro, too – so good! 😉

      Can I make this dish part of a menu?

      Absolutely! The versatility of the Shrimp Omelette makes it a perfect addition to any brunch or dinner menu.

      Pair it with a side salad like Garlic Tomato Salad or Poached Salmon in White Wine for a light and satisfying meal.

      For a dessert, go with my Apple Cinanamon CakeKiwi Pavlova, or Blueberry Pavlova.

      Which drinks pair well with this dish?

      If you serve it for breakfast or brunch, I recommend to serve it with a cup of your favorite coffee or fresh orange juice.

      If this Shrimp Omelette is part of the menu go with crisp white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc or Encruzado.

      Alternatively, I love to make a refreshing mimosa that complements the flavors of this dish beautifully.

      How long can I store the leftovers?

      While best enjoyed fresh, you can store leftover Shrimp Omelette in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days.

      Simply reheat gently in a skillet or microwave before serving to preserve its delicious texture and flavor. Add some chopped spring onion after reheating.

      Recipe tips & tricks:

      • Ensure your shrimp are cleaned and deveined before adding them to the omelette.
      • Use medium heat when cooking the omelette to prevent it from burning while ensuring the shrimp are cooked through.
      • Adjust the amount of paprika, salt, and pepper according to your taste preferences.
      • Serve Shrimp Omelette by garnishing it with fresh herbs of your choice.

      This simple blend of flavors and textures in Shrimp Omelette will leave you and your loved ones satisfied and impressed. Enjoy!
