Omelette

  1. Preheat the grill to high.
  2. Whisk the eggs together with some seasoning.
  3.  Heat a 23-25cm non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, then add the butter and swirl it around to coat the base and sides of the pan.
  4.  Pour in the eggs and, as they start to set, drag a wooden spoon over the base of the pan, lifting up little folds of egg to allow the uncooked egg to run underneath
  5.  When the omelette is set underneath but still very moist on top, sprinkle over the flaked fish and feta.
  6.  Pour the cream on top, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and put the omelette under the hot grill until lightly golden brown.
  7.  Slide it on to a warmed plate and serve.
