  • Use a non-stick frying pan to prevent the omelet from sticking and ensure easy flipping.
  • If the omelet loses its shape, transfer it to a plate, place a paper towel on top, and reshape it by hand.

Variations and Additions

  • Vegetable Add-Ins: Customize your canned mackerel omelet with your favorite vegetables. Potatoes, carrots, onions, scallions, green beans, tomatoes, sprouts, and zucchini are all excellent options to include.
  • Spice Variations: Experiment with different spices and herbs to elevate the flavor of your omelet. Paprika, cumin, and fresh herbs like parsley or dill can add a burst of freshness to your dish.

    I made this with feta cheese and 2 portions of laughing cow spicy jack cheese. 2 tablespoons of jalapeño. Extremely satisfying tasty cost-effective meal. Used up the bulk of the bits I wanted to clear out of fridge.

    So why didn’t you mention before folding add the stuffing? I know to do this but a lot of new cooks made not draw that conclusion?

    1. It doesn’tool like it’s stuffed. It looks like it’s mixed with the egg then pan fried, and then folded.
