DIRECTIONS

  • FOR SAUCE - Place egg yolks, lemon juice & pepper in blender container & blend till lemon-colored.
  • Turn blender to high & very slowly add butter. Blend till thick (about 30 seconds). Pour sauce into top of a dbl boiler, stir in baby shrimp & set aside.
  • FOR OMELETS - Whisk eggs w/water, salt & pepper till well-mixed. Melt 1 tbsp butter in an omelet pan or suitable non-stick skillet.
  • Pour in half the egg mixture & cook, lifting the edge of the omelet to let the egg mixture run onto the pan.
  • When the omelet is well-set, gently slide the omelet onto a plate, place 4-5 asparagus spears in the center, fold over & keep warm while you prepare the 2nd omelet in the same way. (Secure omelets w/a wooden cocktail pick as desired).
  • TO SERVE - Heat shrimp hollandaise sauce slowly in top of dbl boiler over hot water, spoon sauce over omelets, sprinkle w/parsley if using & serve immediately.
  • NOTE - My only issue w/this recipe was the yield. These are lrg omelets & the recipe stated it served 2. However, if you serve w/bread, fruit or other breakfast/brunch item, this recipe definitely serves 4 IMO.
