A Gourmet Smoked Salmon Omelette
Premium Copper River Smoked Sockeye Salmon
Cream Cheese, Red Onion, Dill, Chives
A gourmet rolled omelette with smoked salmon is a delightful and elegant dish that combines the fluffy and creamy texture of a classic French omelette with the rich, savory notes of smoked salmon.
Premium smoked Copper River salmon takes center stage in this dish. Farm-fresh eggs are whisked to perfection, creating a smooth and velvety omelette base. A generous amount of butter is used to cook the omelette, giving it a rich and indulgent flavor. Cream cheese brings a creamy texture, along with a subtle tang. Chopped fresh dill and chives are added for a burst of herbaceous freshness and aroma.
The Artisan Smoked Salmon:
Copper River Fish Market is a seafood boutique in remote Alaska that is fisher(wo)man founded, owned, and operated. Sarah is a generational fisHERman with over two decades of experience in sustainable, small-boat fishing. Every catch is meticulously selected, and each shipment comes with an origin guarantee.

All their seafood comes directly from her family’s catch. The Copper River salmon is cut by hand, brined with only brown sugar and salt and smoked over real alder-wood. The small-batch production and attention to every detail simply is not possible on a larger scale. Her salmon is a true artisan crafted food product.

French Rolled Omelette
Boursin Cheese, Caviar
Bonjour! Happy Bastille Day! July 14th is the day when the French celebrate the birth of the French Republic, liberté, égalité, fraternité, and it is the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789 – a turning point for the success of the French Revolution.
Fête nationale is a national holiday throughout France, and we’re joining the celebration with a French Rolled Omelette filled with French cheese and topped with caviar!
Divine custardy soft-set eggs envelop the creamy shallot & chive soft cheese. The omelette is topped with plenty crunchy-salty caviar and chopped chives, adorned with ruffled edible flowers. It is a simple French masterpiece. Bon appétit!
The story of Boursin Cheese started with one man, François Boursin. In 1957, this young Normandy cheesemaker opened a cheese factory in Croisy-sur-Eure, a small community nestled in northern France. His own original recipe was inspired by fromage frais, a traditional French party dish that blended garlic, fresh cream, soft cheese, herbs, salt and pepper.

Roasted Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Cheddar
Lovers will love. But will haters, hate? There is something about roasting shaved Brussels sprouts that makes them appealing to even the most picky eaters. And stuffing them into a fluffy omelette made with quinoa and melting cheddar – well perhaps we are able to win some new friends for these cute little brassicas that have the unfortunate reputation of being one of the country’s most disliked vegetables.
Brussels sprouts can have a slightly bitter quality, especially the large older ones, which can be off-putting to many. And then there is that childhood memory of mushy overcooked Brussels sprouts with their lingering cabbage-y smells. But when those mini cabbages are shaved – so there are lots of leaves exposed to get crunchy and crackly, then roasted – creating crispy caramelized bits, they do become quite irresistible.
I add cooked quinoa to eggs to increase fiber and nutrients. Cooked quinoa is fluffy like couscous, creamy like rice, slightly crunchy with a nutty taste reminiscent of sesame seeds. It adds flavor and texture to this unique seasonal omelette.

Bay Shrimp and Bean Sprout Omelette
Mirin, Tamari, and Sesame Dipping Sauce
Chive and Chinese Chive Blossom Garnish
As a kid, one of my favorite dishes on “Chinese Take-Out Sunday Night” was the mysterious egg foo young. Back then, the only ingredient that I knew it contained for sure, was egg. I adored those deep-fried thick egg patties smothered in gravy. It was years later that I would re-create egg foo young in my own kitchen. Mystery solved. The filling was mung bean sprouts. Really?
I often fill my omelettes with bean sprouts now, they are high in protein and low in calories. They have a delightful crunch and a mild sweet earthy flavor. Here I pair them with bay shrimp for a light and lovely filling. A dipping sauce of mirin, tamari, and sesame oil takes the place of egg foo young’s traditionally rich gravy. The sweet, salty, toasty flavors are a refreshing complement to the omelette.

Kimchi & Cheddar Omelette
Even if you are not among those of us who crave kimchi on a regular basis, you may still find this omelette irresistible. Korea’s most celebrated pickle dish – kimchi – is super flavorful! Here, napa cabbage kimchi’s zingy fermented flavors are balanced by light fluffy eggs, melting cheddar and rich sour cream. The result is an omelette that is tangy, spicy, even a bit crunchy. A real eye-opener. Good morning! Breakfast. Is. Served.
