Shrimp Avocado Omelet

Seafood Omelet with Bay Shrimp

Favorite Restaurant Breakfast Recipe

Be careful "prepping" the fresh avocados for this Shrimp Avocado Omelet!

First remove the stem. Use a sharp knife. I said---be careful!

Slice the avocado in half by turning the fruit on the knife blade.

Twist the avocado to separate into halves. Use a spoon to remove the pit. Scoop the pulp out with the spoon.

Although avocado is high in fat, so long as you limit the amount (portion) of the avocado, this recipe is fine for low carb weight loss folks.

Of course, no potatoes. Try a couple pieces of fruit as an appropriate accompaniment.

Preparation Time: 8 minutes. Servings: 2


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons each of butter and vegetable oil
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • l/4 cup diced avocado (for low carbers - no more than this)
  • l/4 cup diced tomatoes
  • Fresh lemon wedge
  • 3-4 ounces cooked Bay shrimp
  • 1- 1/2 tablespoons sour cream
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish



  • Heat the egg pan over moderate heat.
  • While the pan heats, beat the eggs in a small mixing bowl with a wire whip until blended but not frothy
  • Combine avocado, tomatoes and squeeze of fresh lemon in a small bowl
  • When the pan is hot enough to sizzle a drop of water, add the butter and oil
  • When the butter stops foaming, whip the eggs a couple of times and pour into the pan
  • Let the pan sit until the eggs begin to cook around the edges
  • Lift edges of eggs with a rubber spatula and tip pan to allow liquid to run underneath
  • Repeat this process until the top is thickening and very little liquid egg remains
  • Spoon the shrimp and avocado mixture across the bottom of the omelet and add a little salt and pepper if desired
  • Fold the omelet in half and slide onto plate. If serving for two, divide the omelet into wedges before plating for more servings
  • Top with dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of parsley


Great job!
