Omelette Arnold Bennett – decedent Smoked Haddock Omelette with a divine Cheese Sauce – Low Carb Luxury
I really wanted to make something special tonight, my favourite comfort food is a Fish Pie, but as I am Low Carbing it’s off the menu, so a suitable alternative is Omelette Arnold Bennett – With a few adaptations – of course….
I couldn’t find plain Smoked Haddock Fillets Fresh or Frozen in Aldi, but I did find an oven ready Pair of Fillets dressed in a cheese sauce, not something I would usually buy, but I wanted Smoked Haddock 😊 The whole pack has 20g of Carbs, so splitting it between 3 isn’t too bad, at this early stage I am trying to stick to around the 20g of carbs per day.
I will cook these as per the instructions, but make additional Cheese sauce and add some King Prawns as there are only 2 Fillets and 3 hungry people
I make 3, 3 egg Omelettes, light and fluffy and per my previous Omelette Post and set them aside.
I start by gently frying some sliced leeks
I make the cheese sauce in the Thermomix, it can be made in a pan, just more stirring, I add 300ml milk, a heaped tablespoon of flour (I have used coconut flour) 30g butter a teaspoon of English mustard powder and 100g of Cheddar (crumbled).
Cook this for 8 minutes, heat 80, speed 3, I empty 2/3 of the the sauce in to a chefs pan, in with the softened leeks.
Heat the grill up to its hottest point.
Add the raw King Prawns, gently cook through.
Flake the Smoked Haddock in large chunks into the sauce, seasoning to taste.
Each Omelette gets a generous portion of the Fish mix
Fold each Omelette over
add additional Cheese sauce to the top, with a sprinkle of grated Parmesan
Pop these under the hot grill till just bubbling
Dinner is Served with some rocket leaves.
