Directions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, saute the shrimp, red pepper, bacon, onion, lemon juice, jalapeno and seasonings in oil and 1 tablespoon butter for 2-3 minutes or until shrimp turn pink and vegetables are tender. Remove and keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, melt remaining butter over medium-high heat; add eggs (mixture should set immediately at edges). As eggs set, push cooked edges toward the center, letting uncooked portion flow underneath.
  3. When the eggs are set, spoon shrimp mixture on one side and sprinkle with cheese; fold other side over filling. Invert omelet onto a plate; cut in half. Sprinkle with parsley. Yield: 2 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
