Ingredients
 

  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoon heavy cream or milk
  • 2 ounces smoked salmon sliced
  • 1 teaspoon creme fraiche
  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl beat eggs, heavy cream and salt and pepper together
  • In a frying pan on medium/low heat add butter. Once butter melts pour in beaten eggs
  • Scramble the eggs a little until they get thin. Stop scrambling if you are starting to see the bottom of the pan. With spatula push down edges to help release the omelette
  • Also swirl pan in order to move around the uncooked egg in order to help it cook. This is not the easiest to explain so I included a video in the recipe notes below.
  • Once omelette is looking solid later sliced smoked salmon, creme fraiche and capers down. Cook a little longer to heat up ingredients. Flip one side over the other then plate the omelette and serve.

Notes

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Pinch of salt, be very careful with the salt in this recipe in the eggs. The other elements are very salty so adding too much in the eggs won't taste very good. Bring balance.
  • Pre-sliced smoked salmon, in this recipe the salmon was pre-cooked and slice. You are welcome to pan fry the salmon but this method produced the best flavor when testing.
  • For a fluffy omelette, the key is your cooking method. I include a video to help with how I prepare my omelette with Gordan Ramsey demonstrating here skip to 4:35.
