I've been making omelettes for Moop the last couple of days, today's was really Repeatable: good-yet-cheap tuna (packed in oil, from the Maroc), pointy red Turkish peppers, red onion, Manchego, and black pepper. Standard disclaimer: if all you've ever had is crappy water-packed supermarket tuna, this is going to sound nasty. Get yourself some good tuna.


tortilla de atún y pimiento.

Saute 1/2 red onion and 1/2 pointy red or green pepper til soft. Drain 1 can of good oil-packed tuna, flake into skillet, stir briefly to combine with onions and peppers. Sprinkle 3 tbsp Manchego over top, heat through (5 minutes or so). Remove tuna filling from skillet and set aside. Add 3 beaten eggs to skillet, wait 1 minute until bottom is set, and return tuna filling to skillet in Omelet Formation. Sprinkle again with a little Manchego and several healthy grates of black pepper. Do not salt without tasting first, this will probably be salty enough. Continue as you normally would. Serves 2.
