I find that shrimp Omelets are fast becoming my favorites to make. I believe it's because shrimp easily take on any flavor I throw at them. It doesn't hurt that they also taste great on their own! So enjoy breakfast with us!

Ingredients:
3 large eggs
2-3 tbsp half and half
5-6 Jumbo gulf shrimp (shelled)
3 tbsp cilantro (chopped)
1/4 white cheddar
1/4 cup fontina
1/3 cup red onion (chopped)
1/2 tsp jalapeno
1/2 tsp lime juice
dash of hot sauce
pinch of cumin
pinch of garlic powder
pinch of smoked paprika
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
1 tbsp 1 tsp unsalted butter

In a small mixing bowl beat three eggs using a whisk. Whisk in the half and half, 2 tbsp red onion, jalapeno, hot sauce, cilantro, salt and pepper.

In a small bowl mix together shrimp with lime juice, cumin, garlic powder and smoked paprika. Add 1 tbsp butter to a 10 inch non-stick skillet and heat over medium heat until butter has fully melted. Now add the shrimp and ¼ cup of red onion to skillet and cook shrimp for 3 minutes. Stir onions, flip shrimp and cook for 3 more minutes.

Add 1 tsp of butter to skillet and move all of the shrimp to one side of the skillet. Move ¾ of the onions to the same side of the skillet and make sure onions and shrimp are spread evenly over that half of the skillet. Now pour egg mixture into skillet evenly. As the mixture begins to set at the edges (4-5 minutes) add your cheese by placing it along one side of the omelet. Let cook 3-4 additional minutes. Fold omelet half without cheese over half with cheese using a spatula and let sit 1-2 minutes.

Slide omelet onto a warm plate and enjoy!
