Marinated Salmon Omelet

The deliciously raw salmon flavored with dill, salted and sweetened at the same time, is a specialty from northern Europe. We know it’s a pretty long marinating time, but you only need a maximum of 30 minutes to prepare it (side-dish included) and, believe us, it’s worth the wait. We’ve chosen for a side a non-pretentious buttery egg wash omelet, but you can figure out something else.

Ingredients Needed for Marinated Salmon Omelet


For the salmon:

7 ounces of salmon fillet
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
½ cup fresh dill
1 bay leaf

For the omelet:

2 tablespoons of butter
8 eggs
2 tablespoons of milk
pepper
chives leaves (for garnishing)

How to Cook Marinated Salmon Omelet

For the salmon:
  1. Add the salmon fillet to a roomy baking dish. Season it with sugar and salt. Coat it with fresh dill and place a bay leaf on top.
  2. Cover with plastic wrap, then marinate for 3 days in the fridge.
  3. Place the salmon fillet on the work surface. Remove most of the dill coating and cut the fillet into thin slices. Set aside.
For the omelet:
  1. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over low heat. As the butter melts, mix 3 eggs and 1 tablespoon of milk in a bowl, then transfer this egg wash to the skillet.
  2. Continuously stir until the egg wash thickens, then start folding it gently.
  3. As you fold the omelet, wrap in 5 or 6 fillet slices and some chive leaves. Serve with 2 – 3 more fillet slices and more chive and salad garnish.
  4. Repeat the last 3 steps with the remaining ingredients for 1 more serving.
