Perfect Pairing: 6Ft6 Pinot Noir with Egg and Duck Omelette with Tamarind Jam
With the changing of the seasons, a celebration is always in order; maybe even a three course meal and a glass of our much-loved 6Ft6 Pinot Noir.
We asked our good friends at Queenscliff Brewhouse what they would recommend serving up alongside our fruity, dark chocolate and vanilla-infused Pinot, and they have created this absolutely delectable recipe; a delicious Egg & Duck Omelette with Tamarind Jam. Now there’s an entrée that’s sure to have all your taste buds talking!
Queenscliff Brewhouse is located along the Bellarine Peninsula, a stone’s throw away from Searoad Ferries. Being in the historic town of Queenscliff itself, the Brewhouse is known for their 400 craft beers and their famous whisky bar featuring a menu made from fresh local produce. It was these great folks that put a fancy spin to create much more than just your regular omelette, a Duck infused Omelette with Tamarind Jam.

What’s even better than eggs for breaky, eggs for entrée.
Queenscliff Brewhouse’s Egg Duck Omelette with Tamarind Jam Recipe
The Recipe: Serves 4
120ml thickened cream
200g roast duck meat
1/2 cup chopped green peas
100g mixed Asian mushrooms, sliced (Enoki, Oyster, Shitake)
1 x red chilli, seeds removed
Sliced sprigs Vietnamese mint & coriander
100g Tamarind and apple jam
Step 1: Measure out all ingredients individually
Step 2: In four individual small bowls, crack one egg and add 30ml cream and a pinch of salt. Whisk together.
Step 3: In small (15cm) ovenproof non-stick pans, divide the butter and oil and heat gently until butter just starts to foam (a little).
Step 4: Divide and add mushrooms and duck to each pan and lightly sauté, adding a pinch of salt until mushrooms are golden.
Step 5: Divide peas between pans and sprinkle over the duck and mushroom then pour over the egg mixture, one per pan. As this is an entrée and not a breakfast omelette we just want the egg to cover the base of the pan.
Step 6: Leave on low flame for a minute or so to set base then place the pans in the oven for a further 2-3 minutes to finish cooking the egg mixture and brown the top of the omelettes.
Step 7: Remove pans from oven, being wary of the hot handles. Using a spatula, fold each omelette in half over and slide onto serving plates. Alternatively, if you have used one larger pan, slide onto a board and cut into 4 wedges and place serve on plates.
Step 8: Garnish with Vietnamese mint, coriander and fresh sliced red chilli. Serve with a rounded tablespoon of Tamarind and Apple Jam.
