Can I put smoked salmon and mozzarella in an omelette? Would that be a no no?
I used to think like this and now I honestly don't care. The omelette police won't come and arrest you. Once, when I was cooking breakfast at the four seasons hotel a woman ordered an omelette with strawberries in it. The smoked salmon sounds great and mozzeralla sounds like a nice addition. To compliment the smoke of the salmon add smoked mozzarella. Again let me emphasize the omelette police won't come and arrest you.
If you are concerned about anything be more concerned about an improperly made omelette. That is a far greater travesty then odd combinations.
I usually adore mozzarella in my omelets. And there were plenty of scallions in there. Smoked salmon and mozzarella just didn't work for me. I'm hesitant to try any cheese with it.
smoke is often a strong flavor--generally. Mozzarella and eggs are milder flavors. I think you need something to stand up to the smoke more. Maybe caramelized onions, maybe dill/chives. Capers could do it too with some sour/salt impact. And for a stronger cheese, something is a swiss/emmentaler/goutaler family would be more to my taste in this application, used with a light hand.
