My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 pinch red pepper flakes
- 1 lb fresh spinach, cleaned, stemmed and patted dry
- 1 tablespoon dry sherry
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce (to taste)
- 1Spinach: Set a wok or heavy skillet over high heat until very hot. Add both oils and heat until smoking, then add the ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes and stir-fry until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the spinach and stir until slightly wilted but still brightly colored, no less than 1 minute.
- 2Remove the wok from the heat and toss the spinach with the sherry and soy sauce. Turn the spinach onto a warmed platter and keep it warm while the eggs cook.
- 3Coin-Purse Eggs: Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the oil, swirling to coat the bottom of the pan.
- 4Crack each egg into a saucer and then add it to the hot oil, as for regular fried eggs. Cook until the bottoms are set, about 1 minute. Then fold each fried egg over into a half-moon shape, enclosing the yolk and pressing the edges of the white to seal it closed like a coin purse. I like my egg yolks pretty well 'set' so I let the egg cook for a while after folding it and then I carefully turn the 'purse' over so the other side can brown a bit.
- 5Arrange the hot fried eggs on top of the ginger spinach and serve immediately.
- 6Note: This is also a great way to fry eggs for a crowd since they take up less room in the pan and you can fit more inches.
