Crawfish Mushroom Omlete

Chef Paul, himself, in  Fork in the Road  said this is one of his favorites. It was the biggest  hit while they were testing the recipes.  He said if you can't get crawfish you can  substitute shrimp or diced chicken breast. Here we go with recipe. This makes four omelets.

Seasoning  Mix
2 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
1 3/4 tsp onion powder
Crawfish Mushroom Omlete
1 3/4 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 1/2 tsp cilanto
1 1/2 tsp sweet basil
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp back pepper
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne

Creamy Mixture
5 oz. evaporated milk
1/2 cup non fat cottage cheese
2 Tb non fat cream cheese

oil cooking spray
1 cup chopped onions
2 Tb flour (all purpose)
1 cup defatted seafood stock*
2 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
2 oz. peeled crawfish tails (or whatever you're substituting)
4 (8oz.) cartons egg substitute (in case you don't know that's whites only, pure protein)

* again check New Shrimp Remoulade for recipe for defatted stock

Combine the seasoning mix  in a small bowl set a side. Put the creamy mixture ingredients in a blender purée until smooth and creamy. Pre-heat 10 in. skillet over high heat (4 min.) add onions cook til they begin to brown. (3-4 min) Add 1/4 stock scraping the bottom (for all the flavorful good stuff) 'til all the liquid evaporates and onions start to stick. Add another 1/4 cup of stock with the flour, mushrooms with 2 tablespoons plus 2 tsp of the seasoning mix. Stir until the flour is completely absorbed. Spread the mixture across the skillet (evenly) keep cooking scraping the bottom periodically as crust forms. (3-4 min.) Add remaining 1/2 cup of stock get all bits of "good stuff" from the bottom. Add creamy mixture stirring constantly while bringing it to a boil. Watch carefully as this may over flow; if that happens lower the heat. When it comes to the boil take off heat and transfer mixture to another container. Mix 1 1/2 tsp of seasoning mixture in each carton of egg substitute blending thoroughly. Clean pan put back over high heat (2-3 min.) Spray with oil (lightly) empty 1 carton egg substitute lower heat to medium and cook 'bout 30 seconds; with spatula push cooked eggs toward center of pan. When3/4 of the eggs have cooked add 1/2 cup crawfish/shrimp/chicken/whichever mixture across the center, gently fold, cook 1 min. per side. Voila, repeat the same process for the other three omletes.
