Shrimp Omelette Recipe
I love eggs and I make a lot of omelette recipes at home.
Egg, as simple as it sounds, is a thing of immense versatility.
You can pretty much do anything with eggs—boil, poach, fry, steam, stir-fried, braise—the end results are always pleasing and make my mouth water.
My favorite omelet recipe is probably shrimp omelette, cooked Chinese style.
How to Make a Shrimp Omelette?
This recipe is very easy and calls for simple ingredients: eggs, shrimp, red onion, and scallion.
First, beat the eggs and add seasonings.
Next, stir fry the eggs with lightly caramelized red onion plus a few delicious and succulent shrimp.
Can I Serve the Omelette Folded?
Chinese-style omelettes are often broken up into chunks, like my pictures above.
However, you can certainly serve the omelet folded, just like a traditional omelette.
