Before you were scared away by the title of this post, let me assure you that omelet with tobiko (fish roe omelet) is a wonderful and delicious recipe. Really! I invited my friends to try the dish and they gave me the thumbs up, and even the kids love it.

If you recall, not too long ago, I made the seared ahi tuna salad with tobiko. I had some leftover tobiko which I didn’t know what to do. I thought it would be great to combine regular eggs with fish eggs, and create a double “eggy” omelet. The recipe worked and it was a success. I loved it that every bite of the omelet, there were a ton of fish roes that popped in my mouth. More importantly, the tobiko adds a subtle “fishy” nuance to a regular omelet dish. It was pleasing to the taste buds.

If you’re not familiar with tobiko, they are orange-hued fly fish roes commonly found at Japanese markets. Compared to masago (capelin roe), they are definitely bigger and much more expensive. I personally prefer tobiko but you canĀ  try this recipe with masago, too. Enjoy!

  1. I love this recipe. Great idea! I had a ton of tobiko left after making sushi and I used it in a fantastic salad but next time I will try this. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m also from Irvine. Which supermarket should I go to if I want to buy the Tobiko? Would it have to be Mitsuwa or would ranch 99 or Zion work?
