Elevate and enliven your average breakfast omelette routine with this delicious exotic egg foo young. This classic Chinese low carb dish called shrimp egg foo young is a well-folded omelette with vegetables and shrimp embedded in the egg mixture. The best way to cook your favorite seafood. It is traditionally served with delicious gravy.
To fill up the egg pancake we are going to use fresh bean sprouts, meaty shiitake mushrooms, colorful green onions and plum shrimp. Authentically the preferred preparation method for this Chinese omelette is deep frying. But we are gonna customize it and simply pan-fry the pancake to save a ton of calories from all the oil. You can however use any cooking method of your choice.
Making something that you have never done before might seem like an ambitious resolution and almost an impossible task, but don’t you worry. The process of making this original and pretty dish by recipe is a breeze, I promise. It is very similar to any version of western omelette. Start making this meal by marinating chopped up raw shrimp with salt and pepper. Slice up your asian inspired vegetables (I will use mushrooms, bean sprouts and green onion) and beat the eggs. Combine eggs with shrimp and veggies and add spices. Fry all the ingredients over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side. Amazing taste and flavor!
The gravy is an essential ingredient in egg foo young. Just four simple and available ingredients like chicken stock, soy sauce, sesame oil and corn starch, mixed together to make this dish simply perfect.
The sauce boosts a lot of savory flavors that pair perfectly with delicately tasting omelette. It is truly a great compliment to it and sets this dish apart from a regular omelette.
This tasty offering can be enjoyed not only for breakfast but really any time of the day. It is healthy and nutritious food thanks to the protein rich shrimp and eggs. Ideal choice for a low-carb diet. Makes for a wonderful light omelette dinner option when served with a side of fresh green salad with asian dressing and tasty homemade gravy. Enjoy!
