Adding shrimp to a classic omelet gives it extra flavor, texture and protein with hardly any extra calories. Serve garnished with a few pinches of fresh thyme and sea salt.


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 pound ready-to-eat shrimp, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon butter, to fry
  • Fresh thyme to garnish


  1. Place the eggs and the water into a bowl and whisk together until the mixture is frothy. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, whisk again to blend and then set aside.
  2. Put the butter into a frying pan over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, add the egg mixture and cook for 4 minutes until the egg has just set. Spoon the shrimp onto the omelet, season with a bit of salt and pepper and then fold the omelet in half; cook for an additional 40 seconds before transferring to a plate.
  3. Garnish the omelet with a pinch of sea salt and some fresh thyme. Serve immediately.
