Devi's Magic Sauce (the 4-Ingredient Paleo Satay Sauce) is the star of this show. My sister really nailed it with this sauce. I've used this combination on paleo pizzas in the past, so there was no question that this Paleo Satay Avocado Prawn Omelette would be terrific.
Devi, her husband, and my nephews came to visit last week. The 5 of us stuffed in my 2 bedroom oven-for-an-apartment. A great visit, I must say, but I did feel bad for the kids. They had a hard time sleeping in the heat we're experiencing in the Okanagan right now. But it was incredible beach weather while they were here!
My good friend Holley (have you met her? Great girl. If you need someone to take your kids off your hands for an afternoon, you can't go wrong with her) asked if she could “steal” the boys for an unspecified amount of time prior to the visit – which would allow the rest of us adults to go for some local wine-touring. Devi and my brother-in-law were pretty pumped about the opportunity, and couldn't have been more thrilled with how great she was with the boys – and that has nothing to do with their subsequent wine consumption!
You know what's funny about people who tell you that their nephews are the cutest kids in the world? They're liars! Know how I know? Because my nephews are the cutest. And the fact that anyone who knew me as a kid says that my younger nephew looks just like I did at that age has almost nothing to do with it, haha. Even Holley stated, after spending the day with the lil guys, that he gave her looks that I often flash her.
**Sand gator that the adults made. Wasn't sure what the hind legs look like so I gave it uber creepy human legs with feet that looked disturbingly like mine…
Given how busy we were outside all week (and how hot it was inside), we really didn't want to spend that much time inside cooking – as much as Devi and I enjoy cooking together – so all the meals that we made this week had to be quick and easy to prepare while being able to keep an eye on the kiddies. Even under these conditions, we were able to come up with a few recipes that will be published on the site in the coming weeks. Look forward to it 😉
Surprisingly, this is the only omelette that I made this week, but I will definitely be revisiting it frequently in the future. My nephew asked his dad, “Did it blow your doors off Dad?” “It exploded the whole house!”
PS – Thanks Devi and family for a great visit!
This flavor combination will knock your socks off. Blow your doors off. Warning: Food this good needs to come with a warning label.
- 2-3 eggs
- 1/2 cup spinach/kale (coarsely chopped)
- 1/8 cup cilantro (chopped)
- 1-2 pinches salt
- 1 tsp ghee
- 1/2 avocado (cubed and sprinkled with lemon or lime juice)
- 2 tbsp Devi's sauce
- 7-10 prawns
- 1/8th onion (diced) or 1 green onion (split in half length-wise and cut into 1 inch pieces)
- 1/2 green chili pepper (finely diced)
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tsp ghee
- 1/8-1/4 cup aged cheddar cheese (shredded)
- 2 Tbsp pico de gallo or salsa (Holley made a peach, tomato, onion, cilantro salsa that we used)
- Using a fork or whisk, whisk eggs in a mixing bowl with salt.
- Mix in spinach and/or kale and cilantro and set aside.
- In a medium-large non-stick frying pan (I prefer cast-iron) saute onions and peppers in ghee (don't be surprised if this causes you to cough – make sure you have the fan on).
- Add prawns and salt, flipping once the edges start to turn pink. Pour into a bowl as soon as prawns are pink – you don't want to over-cook these and have them rubbery.
- Melt another teaspoon of ghee to the hot pan and pour egg mixture in.
- Cook until eggs are basically solid with some runny bits that jiggle, then flip to cook other side.
- Remove from heat after 1-2 minutes cooking second side.
- Plate omelette, scoop Devi's sauce onto surface of the egg, add prawns and avocado and optional ingredients.
- Eat. Enjoy. Replace blown-off doors and knocked off socks.
There is so much going on with this omelette from textural and flavor perspectives. Really a dish for the senses.
Though the cheese is not needed by any means, it is a welcome addition for those who are primal/lacto-paleo.
This is a pretty hearty meal. It's unlikely that you'd need anything more with it.
