Dear Claire,

But doesnít this melt the plastic handles of the skillet?

I donít find it hard to turn the tortilla over using a plate on the pan. Thatís easy. No skill involved.

hey I just made advoca's egyptian omellete. It's really good the taste of coriander and sardine (actually anchovy) is sublime.

I made one plain (w/o anchovy) and one with anchovy. The plain one I boiled in butter/oil and the anchovy in pork fat/oil. I dont think it matters what it fries in. My wife is not big on anchovy but I like to put it in foods and see if she can taste it. She had the plain one first, then I served her the anchovy and she said it was sort of fishy. she like that one too. My 2 1/2 yr. old daughter ate a lot of the anchovy one, she asked for seconds and thirds. I was impressed.

I served it w/ a little sour cream. I wonder if a mint sauce would be good or maybe some Lowry's seasoning?

You have to use a skillet without plastic handles.
Some skillets are advertised as "oven-proof". As long as they don't have plastic handles, I think they're safe. My dad loves ovens and melted some of our friends skillet handles before...
