A favorite of seafood loyalists at New York City's Harlow, this decadent omelete is a rich breakfast treat. Even though its relatively simple, your brunch guests will be wowed.


  • 2 Large eggs
  • 2 ounce lobster meat
  • 1 ounce roasted wild mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon clarified butter


Step 1:

  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Toss selection of wild mushrooms with olive oil and season with salt and pepper and place on sheet tray. Place sheet tray into the middle rack of oven and roast for 20/25 minutes until golden brown. Let rest and cool off then chop up into a medium dice.

Step 2:

  • Bring a large pot of water to boil and season water with salt. Place lobster in and cook for 9 minutes. Remove lobster from pot and place into an ice bath. When cool enough remove meat from shell , clean and chop meat into a medium dice.

Step 3:

  • Bring a 8 inch non stick sauté pan with the clarified butter to medium high heat.

Step 4:

  • Crack eggs into a mixing bowl and beat with whisk until well mixed. Once you see whisps of smoke coming from sauté pan pour whipped eggs into pan season with salt and pepper and stir rigorously with a rubber spatula until you see soft creamy curd form (about 15 seconds). Once creamy curd consistency is achieved quickly take pan of the fire and pat eggs down to form what looks pancake. Evenly place lobster and roasted mushrooms all over top of the egg.

Step 5:

  • Run the spatula underneath the egg making sure nothing sticking to the pan. Then fold over the top third of the omelet and slide the omelet off the sauté pan with side that isn’t folded first. As you are sliding the egg off the pan you fold over top third.

Step 6:

  • Brush top with clarified butter and garnish with the chopped chives.
