I love fish and the Barcelona market has great quality in abundance.
The smells are overwhelming, the stalls are alive and full of colour. The Barcelona market is a beautiful place to be enjoyed by anyone but appreciated most by lovers of fresh food.
Tiny tapas bars are dotted around with only 6 stools per stand where people stop for ten minutes for a little bit of something they might fancy to eat and drink no fuss.
Here is a recipe for a great omelette.
Hand full of chopped ham
hand full of grated chedder
Some Parmesan to finish.
3eggs lightly beaten in a bowl so as they maintain marbling of yolk and white.
Salt and pepper.
1) Heat butter in a medium sized frying pan then loosen eggs that have been seasoned well with salt and pepper in so as the pan is hot and begins bubbling immediately. Using a spatula fold eggs around so as they cook through quick after two minutes the egg should be set fairly well but not completely.
2) Sprinkle in cheddar and ham then fold omlette to carry on cooking off the plate where it will reach it’s final stage off the heat. It’s important to know the egg carries on cooking off the heat, this is how many people overcook their omlette
3) When dished up the omelette will remain cooking sprinkle with Parmesan serve and enjoy. The precooked ham should be hot and the cheddar cheese gooey.
Here is a short video clip to get an idea, I chose to truffle my omlette but that’s a lesson for another day and complete over indulgence on my part.
