Quick Omelette with Sardines

The sardines turned out to be a great addition to my table and a product I will surely use again. As not to mask their delicate flavor, I paired these silvery little guys with a simple omelette. This actually made for a great and quick breakfast, a rare event documented on this site. 

You need:

  • 1 tin of Norwegian sardines, in olive oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 slices of prosciutto, chopped
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to make it:

  1. In an omelette pan, heat olive oil over medium heat and gently saute shallot until translucent.
  2. Add chopped prosciutto and cook for another minute or two.
  3. In a seperate bowl, whisk eggs and parsley together until well combined. Add a pinch of salt and some black pepper.
  4. Pour egg mixture over shallots. Quickly stir to lightly scramble the eggs. Cook until eggs are still just a little runny and remove from pan.
  5. Plate four sardines and grind a little black pepper over them.
  6. Top with a tablespoon or two of the eggs. Serve with a little parsley garnished on top.
