Serves 2

1/2 Tbsp olive oil
2 chorizo, skins removed
4 eggs, separated
1/3 cup pouring cream
1/2 cup grated haloumi
1/2 cup chopped curly parsley leaves
Sea salt and cracked black pepper
20g unsalted butter
Micro parsley leaves (optional) and lemon wedges, to serve

1 Heat the oil in a medium non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add the chorizo and cook, breaking up lumps, for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside and reserve the oil.

2 Place the egg yolks, cream, haloumi, parsley, salt and pepper in a bowl and stir until well combined.

3 Place the egg whites in a separate bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites though the egg yolk mixture.

4 Melt the butter in 22cm non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Add the egg mixture and cook for 4-5 minutes. Sprinkle with the chorizo and cook for a further 3-4 minutes or until the base of the omelette is just set.

5 Gently fold over to enclose the chorizo and cut in half. Sprinkle with the micro parsley, drizzle with the chorizo oil and serve with lemon wedges.
