    Snowbunny Andorra's Note:

    I thought I'd try to make my own Spanish omelette. I first tried a Rick Stein recipe which used salt cod, but I wasn't impressed, so I thought I'd adapt his recipe to make a plainer version. You could add anything you wanted to it - a bit of chorizo, peas, spinach, ham or just have it plain like this with a bit of salad.

      This is an alright pretty plain omelette we enjoyed with a homemade salsa, I did add sea salt to the yellow fleshed potatoes I used while they were cooking, we prefer them in round slices to the matchsticks here, I used sweet white onion even though it does not call for them in the ingredients list, I did so as I prefer them to regular and because of the recipe's title. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil and needed to add more than called for but I was not using a non stick pan. I used freshly ground pepper plus the rest. Not a recipe I would make again.
