It’s Sunday, it may seem cliché, but it’s my favorite day of the week. The only day my family and I gather together for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Today’s breakfast is particularly special. The last Sunday Breakfast in NJ, so it has to be perfect. I am treating them with my favorite shrimp and veggie omelet. Sometimes, I use this recipe for lunch and even dinner. It’s delicious, filling, and simple to make as usual.
Next week, my family and I will start a new adventure, a new chapter, a new beginning, a new state. I will resume sharing my table with you, once, we settle.
Marjie’s Shrimp and Veggie Omelet
Salt and pepper
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 large tomato, diced
1 cup cooked shrimp
2tbsp cheddar cheese
2 tbs green onions (I did not use today)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1tsp pepper flakes
1 tbsp of Feta cheese optional
Fresh parsley (I used dry parsley flakes)
Heat olive oil in a skillet, add pepper, onions, and tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes or until the onions are transparent. Add shrimp, cook until they turn pink. Then set aside.
Mix together the eggs, water, salt, and pepper
Over a medium-high flame, heat the butter in an omelet pan. Add the eggs to the pan. Let it set for a few seconds, then, with a fork, work the cooked egg mixture from the sides to the middle, creating a center of cooked eggs. Lift edges of omelet with a spatula, and tilt pan so that uncooked portion flows underneath.
Add the mixture (onion, tomatoes, pepper, shrimp) and the cheddar cheese in the middle. Fold in half. Transfer omelet to a serving plate. Garnish with either fresh and dry parsley flakes and the feta cheese
Let me know if you enjoy this recipe, Happy Sunday.
Wow. Never had shrimp on my omelet. Having said that, it definitely seems yummy and doable for a newbie like me too!
Try and let me know, Sreekar!
It is a good thing you can add anthing to omelettes, I always prefer the Spanish one (with potatoes and onion) but I also make spinach and aspargus omeletes 🙂
I always like to try new thing, I will definitely try the asparagus, Lau.
I’ve never seen shrimp in an omelet. Not sure I could tackle that first thing in the morning – not big on breakfast. But I’m sure that Feta tastes amazing in an omelet – never tried that either. Thanks for the ideas.
How about enjoying it for lunch, Shan?
I LOVE shrimp but I’ve never thought to put it into an omlette! It seems super simple too, maybe I will try it!
Give it a try and let me know, what else did you add, Eboni.
That looks delicious – I’ve never had shrimp omelette but I think I might have to give it a try now…
Try and let me know, Kate.
Oh, my shrimps and omelet! Looks so delicious! It’s perfect for a Sunday breakfast!
I agree, Cris.
These look so good! I know my stepdad would absolutely love these! Great brunch dish!
I think he would, Jazmin.
Thank you for sharing this recipe. I wouldn’t have thought to try shrimp in my omelette! Sounds absolutely delicious! <3
Jennifer, sometimes, I use whatever I find in the fridge and come up with some delicious meal.
I would never have thought of putting shrimp in an omelet, this sounds amazing! Good luck with the move and your new adventure!!
Thank you, Stephanie.
I’ll have to share this with my shrimp-loving friends! Good luck on the move. It can be stressful but rewardin, too.
This Shrimp and Veggie Omelet looks yummy and healthy I like it.
It was delicious and we enjoyed it, Maysz.
I used to think that sundays are boring until I learned to love them. Every sunday I wake up make myself a massive cuppa and read a magazine or book for at least 30′. This self care moment hs changed my perspective!
That’s great, Yota!
Looks lovely! My partner makes the best omelettes and he is always making different creations with cheese and veggies x
Share some with me, Melanie!
OMg I have never had a shrimp omelet before but the idea is genius! I so need to try this.
Try it and let me know, Lisa.
Wow, that looks delicious! I love omelets and I love shrimp but I don’t think I’ve ever combined them! Will definitely be trying this recipe!
I have added so many things in my omelet, Lois, to me, it’s fun to modify recipes.
That is a delicious breakfast recipe that I would like to try out. Thanks for saving my morning 😀
You are welcome, Kartika!
This sounds interesting. Though I’m a vegetarian so I can’t try these but I’ll share this post with my friends who love shrimp.
You can skip the shrimp, Anshika, add spinach or other veggies.
Thanks for the delicious recipe. Will surely give it a try.
Thank you, Simerbir.
