What You'll Need
  • 20 ounces raw shrimp (roughly 10 oz peeled and deveined)
  • 6 medium eggs
  • 6 slices sprouted wheat bread
  • 1/4 cup whole milk (or 2 fl oz)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 ounce cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1/4 cup scallion (finely chopped)
  • 6 ounces cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
  • 6 ounces strawberries (stems removed, cut in half)
  • 6 ounces oranges (cut into wedges)
  • 8 ounces green seedless grapes
  1. Cut the shrimp: Using a clean cutting board, roughly chop 10 oz peeled shrimp into even bite-sized pieces and put it in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Add 1 tbsp olive oil to a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp paprika.
  3. Cook and stir constantly for 3 minutes or until the shrimp are just cooked through and have turned pink. Turn off the heat. Transfer the shrimp to a clean bowl and allow them to cool for a few minutes.
  4. Beat the eggs: In a large mixing bowl, combine 6 medium eggs, 1/4 cup chopped scallions, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/4 cup whole milk, and the cooked shrimp. Whisk to combine.
  5. Cook the omelets: Using the same skillet, turn the heat to medium-low. Melt 1 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter. Ladle one quarter of the egg and shrimp mixture into the skillet.
  6. Add 6 oz cherry tomatoes and 1 oz shredded cheddar cheese on top. Cook for 2 minutes. Fold the omelet in half, flip it, and cook for another minute. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Repeat with the remaining omelet batter.
  7. Cut the bread: Put a slice of 6 slices sprouted wheat bread on a clean cutting board. Cut into halves diagonally and place them on a plate. Repeat with the remaining bread.
  8. Toast the bread: Place the slices into the basket of an air fryer and cook for 4 minutes at 390 °F. Once the timer rings, remove and transfer the bread to a plate.
  9. Garnish and serve: Place the omelet on one side of the plate with the toasted bread, 6 oz strawberries, 6 oz oranges, and 8 oz green seedless grapes on the other side and serve.
