Dill Omelet Recipe

Dill Omelet

Dill omelets are a favorite in Southeast Asia. While this omelet might look a little bit different to the Westerner, we assure you it tastes simply delicious.

3 eggs
1 tsp fish sauce* (from Asian Grocer)
Pinch of Lawry’s Seasoned Pepper
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill (or 1 tsp dried dill weed)
1 spring onion (aka scallion), diced

Whisk the eggs well with a hand whisk until light and frothy. Add the fish sauce, Lawry’s Seasoned Pepper, and dill. Mix together well.

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Stir fry the spring onion for 1/2 minute. Add eggs, and using the bottom of a fork swirl the eggs around until they start to set. Then let cook until firm and push to one side of pan to form omelet.

Note that this is a French style omelet and light and fluffy unlike the typical American style omelet that is cook firm and then stuffed with a filling. The trick to getting this omelet cooked just right is to have the pan medium hot and the mix the eggs around with the fork until just about set, and then simply pushing the eggs to the side of the pan. It’s not hard to do but might take one or two times for you to get the knack of the French omelet cooking method.

*If you don’t happen to have fish sauce in your pantry you can omit it completely or substitute 1 tsp grated Parmesan cheese from to umami flavor it imparts. If you’ve never cooked with fish sauce and are interested in trying this recipe as directed, don’t be concerned about the smell of the fish sauce. It completely disappears in the food and gives the omelet a delicious flavor.

A Simple Grilled Tomato Salsa

Break out that rarely used Waring Blender to make this quick and easy Salsa for your chips. This recipe is an absolute ease to make. No cutting and dicing just a couple whirls of the blender does the trick.

Here’s what you need:
2 Medium/Large Fresh Vine Ripe Tomatoes
1 Large Red Onion
1/2 bunch Fresh Cilantro

Grill the tomatoes and red onion until blackened. Use care with the tomatoes because they will become soft as they cook. Handle the tomatoes with tongs and have a plate handy when you pick them up because if the tomatoes become too soft they might fall apart. So you may find it best to simply roll the tomatoes from the grill to the plate instead of risking the consequences of having the tomato fall through the grill.

Now place the tomato, red onion and cilantro in a Waring Blender and blend on high speed until the Salsa is chopped fine. Quite simply and delicious. Serve immediately with your favorite potato, tortilla, Doritos, or Tostitos chips. Refrigerate unused portion.
