How to make it

  • Prepare shrimp, cheese, tomato, avocado, and cilantro prior to cooking. If desired, place serving plate in the oven at 200°F to warm.
  • In a small bowl, toss tomato, avocado and optional cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Beat the eggs in a small bowl just until the whites and yolks are combined, but not long enough to become frothy.
  • Over medium-high heat, melt butter in a 6–8-inch skillet until just after it bubbles but does not brown. Tilt skillet to spread butter evenly around and up sides.
  • Pour the eggs in the hot skillet, tilting and shaking the pan gently with one hand while stirring the eggs gently with a regular fork held flat with the other hand.
  • When the eggs begin to firm up, add the shrimp and cheese in a line along the center third of the omelet.
  • Immediately use the fork to fold one side then the other up over the center filling, tilting the pan to help you "roll" it into a loose cylinder.
  • Cook another 10–30 seconds, depending on how brown you prefer the bottom (check for brownness by lifting a corner).
  • Slide omelet onto a warmed plate, top with tomato avocado mixture and serve.

    I liked this a lot, my first shrimp omelet! Just thought the avocado salsa needed acidity and a little lime juice did the trick :) Added a review to the IMI ---------> Shrimp And Avocado Omelet
