Preparation method

  1. For the red onion and plum relish, heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the red onion and plums and fry over a high heat. Add the remaining relish ingredients to the pan and simmer for five minutes until softened.

  2. Spoon the relish into a small serving bowl and leave to cool while you prepare the omelette.

  3. For the omelette, melt the butter in a small frying pan.

  4. Mix the beaten egg with the chopped ham in a small bowl and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  5. Add the egg mixture to the pan and mix with a wooden spoon until it starts to set around the edge of the pan. Leave to cook over a low heat until it has completely set. Carefully flip the omelette out onto a plate and slice into wedges.

  6. Serve the omelette with the relish on the side, garnished with chopped parsley.
