An asian style omlette cooked in a super healthy way and unlike anything I’ve ever tasted before. It’s a really delicious and easy way to eat eggs. Well worth a try.

RECIPE:

INGREDIENTS:

5 eggs
115g small fresh prawns
handfull of beansprouts
2 spring onions (finely sliced)
2 teaspoons shrimp paste
2 tablespoons fresh coriander (chopped)
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
chilli oil (for drizzling)
1 small red chilli (seeded and finely sliced)
salt & pepper

DIRECTIONS:
Beat the eggs in a bowl, stir in the prawns, beansprouts, spring onions, shrimp paste and coriander. Season with salt & pepper. Bring a pan, 1/3 filled with water to the boil. Sit a heatproof bowl with a slightly wider width on top. Lightly oil it, then pour in the egg mixture and steam it for 5-10 minutes until it’s firm. Turn out the egg to a board and slice.

SERVING:
Arrange on a plate and drizzle with the chilli oil and sprinkle over red chillies and coriander. Serve hot or cold.
