    Shrimp Omelette? I see your gears turning and for a long time I was a skeptic about seafood at breakfast. It was silly, really, considering I love seafood any other time of day.

    Why not breakfast? But shrimp with eggs…. I don’t know about this. The conclusion: deliciousness!

    I finally tried a Maryland Shrimp Omelette- shrimp, old bay, cheddar… basically crab dip engulfed by egg. It was a life changing event. I am now and forever comfortable with seafood omelettes, especially shrimp omelettes!

    Making this for years I generally make it when I have leftover shrimp or plan to make a couple extra if I am making them for dinner the night before.

    I generally have the other ingredients in my pantry and/or refrigerator. If I am missing one, or have to use a different kind of onion, no biggie,  it still tastes good.

    Because it is so rare, one usually doesn’t know what a perfect omelette should look like. And it is quite challenging to create! So here’s how to cook an omelette!

    The number one thing I look for: no brown on the outside. It should have a buttery sheen of pure, golden yellow egg. It should also be just slightly runny inside and super fluffy.

    I know what you are thinking. You are looking at my Shrimp Omelette and thinking, hers has brown!
