Filipino Recipes – Shrimp Meat Tortilla (Omelet) Recipe – Pinoy Food

The good thing about tortillas is the fact that you can use almost anything to whip into a wonderful recipe. For this post, I combine pork and shrimps (two of my favorites) into a yummy Shrimp Meat Tortilla good for young and old folks alike. I say so, because from my Grandma down to my little 2-year old boy, this all-around recipe can be served any day. I prefer to serve this during breakfast to break the monotony of cooking plain eggs. With meat and shrimps in the mix, you can tease the taste buds of the people you love. An ordinary breakfast can be turned into something full of smiles and praises whenever I place this dish on the table.

There are still many versions of tortilla that you can prepare out of mixed meats but I always find this recipe as the best meat combination. You can trust me on this!


  • 1 cup ground pork
  • ½ cup shrimps shelled(cut finely)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • ½ cup onions (chopped)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup sliced tomatoes
  • 4 tbsp shortening
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)

Cooking Procedure:

  • Sauté garlic, onion and tomatoes in shortening. Add ground meat then shrimps and continue cooking until well cooked. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the cooked mixture from the pan and set aside.
  • Grease the pan with enough shortening and line with a banana leaf. Beat the eggs and add the cooked mixture. Pour the mixture over banana leaf and let cook. Line a plate with another banana leaf and turn the tortilla upside down. Put it back in the pan to brown the other side.
  • Serve hot.
