Tasty Mackerel Omelet with lemon zest & Chives
This lovely omelet can be prepared for breakfast with a fresh glass of orange juice, or
prepared for lunch along with fresh salad! It has a great taste and is perfect if you need
some breakfast inspiration.
1 tbs olive oil
4 scallions (spring onions) cleaned & chopped
200 g of smoked fish without skin (eel,mackerel or trout are all good)
5 freerange eggs
1/2 tbs chives
Add the olive oil to a large pan and add the chopped scallions. Tear the fish
in large uneven chunks and add them to the pan. Shake the pan around a little
so everything becomes nicely covered in the oil. Grate half of the lemon
zest and throw it in along with pinch of black pepper.
Turn down the heat. Break the eggs and beat them in a large bowl. Add another small
pinch of black pepper and a pinch of seasalt if your diet permits it.
Spread the contents of the pan evenly before pouring over the eggs. Stir gently
to make sure the omelet fills the holes. When the eggs is no longer fluid, turn the heat
down to very low.
Check if the omelet isn't becoming to brown underneath. When the top of the omelet is no longer transparant,
gently slide it onto a large plate. Sprinkle with the chives.
Cut the rest of the lemon in two and serve it for squeezing over the omelet. This is a nice omelet to serve open-faced.
When having this for lunch, serve with a fresh salad.
What is the Paleo Diet?
The Paleo diet (abbreviation for Paleolithic diet) is a diet which is inspired by the manner in which our ancestors ate. More specifically, it is inspired by our ancestors from the Paleolithic age (approximately 2,600,000 to 10,000 years ago).
Scientific research shows that the human genome has only evolved 0.01% in the most recent 10,000 years.
Our eating habits have however changed multiple times, now including many products that our 99.99% still Paleolithic genetic build-up was never supposed to eat! The basic assumption of the Paleo diet is that the by eating the foods that our body is supposed to eat, healthyness and quality of life increases.
