Omelette - Spanish Omelette from "Seiren"

Omelette – Spanish Omelette from “Seiren”

Crunchyroll FEATURE: Cooking With Anime – Spanish Omelette from “Seiren” –


Recipe taken from here and modified to include garlic, which is what was used in Seiren that’s a little different from the traditional Spanish omelette recipe.

 1 1/2 pound Yukon gold potatoes

  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, or more, depending on your preferences
  • 7 large eggs OR 6 extra large eggs
  • salt and pepper



To Make: 

1. Skin potatoes (peel potatoes?? Skin your potatoes sounds much more sinister, don’t you think?) and remove onion skin, and half onion. Grate or chop garlic finely.

2. Slice potatoes and onion into thin slices using a mandolin. Can be done by hand, just make sure to get thin slices, around 1/8 of an inch.

3. Then, whisk together eggs with salt and pepper.

4. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium high heat, until nice and hot. Layer potatoes, onion, and garlic in the pan. Stirring occasionally, let cook about 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

5. Drain potatoes and onions and let cool a bit, about 5 minutes. Set aside 2 tbsp of olive oil for later. You can refrigerate the rest, to be used for another project.

6. Mix potatoes and onions with the eggs, and let sit about 10 minutes to make the final tortilla more cohesive.

7. Reheat 2 tbsp olive oil in a pan over medium high heat. Pour the potato/onion/egg mixture back in, and pat it down evenly. Reduce heat to medium low and let cook about 8-10 minutes, or until tortilla looks dry on top.

8. Place a dinner plate over the pan, and flip the tortilla onto the plate. Then shuffle the tortilla back into the pan, raw side down. Let cook another 3-4 minutes.

9. When done, flip back onto the dinner plate.

10. And now it’s done! Serve immediately, or when cold. Enjoy it for me, because I’m drooling just thinking about it now.
