In This Recipe


  1. Heat your omelet pan and quickly melt the butter. Use your favorite method for making the omelet with 2 eggs and seasoning. When the inside of the omelet is still a bit wet (the French call that "baveuse"), quickly spread a lengthwise strip of gruyere in the middle, and fold over the top of the omelet to melt the cheese and create a crescent. Slip onto a serving plate. Smear a swoosh of sour cream across the top, lengthwise, and top this with the salmon roe. Serve. * Use a non-metallic spoon (plastic is fine) to scoop the salmon roe, or it will taste metallic. --------------------------------------------------
