How To Make Shrimp Omelette
There is very little prep involved to make this Shrimp Omelet. First dice the carrots into small pieces, making sure they’re equally sized. Mix with the eggs, chives, and seasoning and whisk to combine.
Place the shrimp in a pan over medium heat. Pour the omelet mixture on top and cook until the eggs are fully cooked through.
While you can add water or milk to the mixture, it’s best to leave them out as they could make the omelet watery.
Don’t overcook the shrimp, otherwise, they will become rubbery!
To prevent the omelet from burning before it’s completely cooked, keep the heat on medium.
Feel free to add fresh herbs like basil, oregano, cilantro, or parsley. Add soy sauce for extra flavor.
Shrimp Omelette Variation
Here are a few Shrimp Omelet versions you can try:
Thai: add ground pork, light soy sauce, and oyster sauce.
Chinese: use red onion (chopped), soy sauce, and shrimp
Japanese: make a rolled omelet with shrimp and scallions
How To Store Shrimp Omelet
The shrimp omelet can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Make sure to store them in an airtight container so that they do not absorb any odors in your fridge.
You can also freeze them. Allow to cool, and wrap tightly in plastic wrap or airtight Ziploc bags. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
When you reheat them, don’t heat them up too quickly as the eggs might split. You can reheat the shrimp omelet in the microwave (50% heat), oven, or stovetop.
