The lovely Sam from @parachute_nutrition kindly allowed us to use her omelette recipe. Now you might be wondering why she uses duck eggs instead of chicken eggs?
Here are a few reasons Sam mentions in favour of duck eggs:
- They contain more protein. An average chicken egg contains 6.28g, while an average duck egg contains 8.97g.
- They contain more nutrients. For example they pack in 6 times the vitamin D of chicken eggs and more magnesium, calcium, iron, vitamin B12, vitamin A, thiamin, etc. per 100 grams.
- Important for pregnant women: Duck eggs have a higher fat content than chicken eggs. They contain 9.6g of fat, compared to 5g of fat in chicken eggs. Fat as we know is needed in pregnancy for growing baby and mum.
- They stay fresh longer due to their thicker shell.
- Also, people who cannot eat chicken eggs, due to allergies, can often eat duck eggs.
After sharing Sam’s facts with you, here are the ingredients and instructions for making her delicious omelette:
INGREDIENTS (serves 2-3):
- 6 duck eggs
- Milk of your choice
- Grass fed butter
- 1 tin of Fish4Ever Wild Salmon
- Veggies of your choice such as courgette, tomatoes, cooked broccoli mushrooms or others
- Grated parmesan
- Spices and herbs of your choice
- Combine the duck eggs with the milk.
- Fry your veggies in butter in a pan. When they are cooked through, add the egg-milk mixture and the salmon.
- Mix everything well in the pan, then let it set.
- Season to taste with salt, pepper or whatever you fancy.
- Finally, spread the grated parmesan over your omelette.
You can serve it with steamed spring greens as a side, just like Sam did or get creative and try out other sides.
