    Omelette roll with smoked salmon

    By Alida Ryder Serves: 2 - 4
    Cooking Time: 15 mins


    • 5ml (1 tsp) butter, for frying
    • 4 extra-large eggs
    • 30ml (2 tbsp) fresh cream
    • 2,5ml (½ tsp) salt
    • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 100g cream cheese, softened
    • 50g smoked salmon ribbons
    • handful fresh wild rocket
    • lemon wedges, to serve (optional)



    Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat and add a teaspoon of butter.


    Whisk the eggs in a bowl with the cream, salt and pepper. Pour the egg into the pan. You want a thin omelette so if your pan isn’t big enough, this mixture will make two rolls. Cover with a lid and cook until the egg is pale yellow and firm.


    Carefully slide the omelette from the pan onto a wooden board and allow to cool slightly.


    Cover the omelette with the cream cheese then top with smoked salmon and rocket. Roll up tightly, slice and serve with lemon wedges.
