Tilapia Omelet

Justin made something he wanted me to share with you all--a tilapia omelet. He broke the rule about not mixing cheese and fish, but I don't think he cared. He liked it, and that's all that matters. If you aren't as much of a rebel, feel free to leave the cheese out. There isn't that much in there anyway.

Honestly, I'm not a big fan of fish. I love crab, shrimp, crawfish, lobster, and all that tastiness, but I just don't really like plain ol' fish. Never have. Therefore, I didn't partake in any of this omelet. Justin enjoyed this for a casual, one-man, weekend brunch. Like I said, he thought it was good enough to share with you all, so here it is.


2 tbsp olive oil
2-3 tbsp diced onion
4-6 oz tilapia
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/8 tsp chili powder
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Pinch of white pepper

Omelet 3 eggs
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
Pinch of chili powder
1/2 tbsp butter
3-4 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese


Heat olive oil in a small sauté pan. Add onions and cook 2-3 minutes. Add tilapia and sprinkle seasonings on both sides. Cook tilapia through. Use a spatula or spoon to gently flake apart the fish.

Whisk together the eggs and seasonings for the omelet. Melt the butter in a small pan. Add the eggs and cook most of the way through. Flip, and cook until desired doneness. Add fish mixture and cheese on top of the eggs. Fold omelet in half.

Servings: 1


  1. I tried this recipe and thought it was delicious. I was thinking about this combination, so looked it up and found your blog. Thanks for posting it, I already have friend who wants to try it herself.

  2. I found this this morning because I was starving and only had frozen tilapia, 1 egg and some egg whites (a college student's fridge). I didn't have cheddar (Cheese and eggs make me nauseous anyway) so I used some grated parm instead. Holy cow was the omelette good! I'm really happy to have found this and am going to keep the recipe for the future! Thanks :)
