Smoked Bluefish Omelet

another fresh seafood idea

Centuries ago, the coastal Indians began smoking fish over glowing embers as a means of preservation. By using this method, the catch from a good fall fishing trip could be enjoyed throughout the lean winter months.

  • 2 oz. smoked bluefish, flaked
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 oz. cream cheese
  • scallions
  • butter

Over medium heat melt butter. Pour in eggs and wait 30 seconds. Then add cream cheese cut thinly, bluefish and scallions. Cook over very low flame. When eggs are almost done, fold omelet in half. Then flip and cook 30 seconds more.
