Not all omelettes were made equal. Case in point: the Thai omelette. It isn't just as simple as breaking an egg but what goes into the mix, before hitting the pan. For restaurant Blue Jasmine, a few drops of lime juice and fish sauce goes a long way. And by that, we mean a result that's too delicious to share. Recreate the golden brown circle with this recipe below.
