Our Asian Inspired Omelette recipe is one of my favourite ways to celebrate the flavour rewards and simplicity of eating local, fresh produce. With the added benefit of finding yet another excuse to enjoy a thick slice of Organic Sourdough Bread, from the local legends that are The Bread Social YAY!
As with all our recipes the fundament key to flavour is sourcing and eating fresh, local produce. For this recipe, we harvested the eggs from my friends farm in Myocum, the morning of shooting this little video, so yeah ….. the eggs were super duper fresh and local! The ginger was local and the greens from our mates garden, and of course the coriander is from local legends The Gourmet Salad Hut, if you’re ever travelling through Byron (or like us are lucky enjoy to live here), you simply must go seek out The Gourmet Salad Hut crew at one of the local farmers markets’ and stock up! We love love love their coriander (and all their luscious leafy greens for that matter!). And if you can’t use all the herbs, simply turn them into a beautiful homemade pesto.
We love making our coriander pesto using; heaps of fresh coriander, freshly roasted cashews, crushed garlic, extra virgin olive oil, fresh lime juice, plus salt and pepper of course! Blend all the ingredient together until smooth and lovely, then store the pesto in a sterile glass jar, and keep it in the fridge (it should easily last for 1-2 weeks ……. if you don’t eat it all before that is!). Dollop on toast, or serve over your poached, scrabbled or fried eggs, it’s also epic with chicken, prawns, lamb, fish OR tossed through roasted or steamed vegetables!
The Sesame Soy Dressing is a staple in my fridge at home, and I tend to make a big batch of this dressing, so it is always on-hand for adding to salads, omelettes, panfried chicken, fish etc. Make sure you toast the sesame seeds just before adding to the soy, sesame, caster sugar and rice wine vinegar mixture, so the sesame seeds sizzle when they hit the liquid, this is a small detail ……. but really does make a big difference to the roundness of the flavour in the dressing.
