White plate covered with an orange sauce with an omelette stuffed with salmon and peas.

Salmon and Pea.

It’s incredibly simple to make something appear fancy that isn’t. This is the perfect example of that. And given the ingredients and flavour profile, this could easily be an upscale lunch rather than breakfast — though being a little bougie at breakfast never hurts either.

If you have some leftover salmon and a bag of frozen peas, you’re half-way there.

This is all about the filling. Make the physical omelette in any style you like.

Amounts are not exact, just suggestions. These recipes are general guidelines roughly aimed towards single egg, individual portions unless otherwise mentioned. Adjust as necessary. Play around. Have fun.

Season everything to taste with salt and pepper.

Disclaimer: Though unlikely, eating undercooked eggs can cause illness.
