A shellfish omelet... BLECH... doesn't get more TIAD except for the
asparagus... asparagus with seafood is as TIAD as mushrooms with
seafood.



Technically a frittata isn't an omelet.


"Technically".

frittata [frih-TAH-tuh]
An Italian OMELET that usually has the ingredients mixed with the eggs
rather than being folded inside, as with a French omelet. It can be
flipped or the top can be finished under a broiling unit. An omelet is
cooked quickly over moderately high heat and, after folding, has a
flat-sided half-oval shape. A frittata is firmer because it's cooked
very slowly over low heat, and round because it isn't folded.
