Chinese Shrimp Omelette

YUM !! I finally got this down to as good as any omlette I have had in a Chinese restaurant. A great addition to your other chinese dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare sauce by adding oyster sauce to chicken broth then whisk.
  2. Heat wok or skillet until extremely hot.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon of oil & stir fry shrimp, onion & green onion until just cooked then remove.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons oil to wok & when hot, add the beaten eggs.
  5. Return shrimp & onions to wok.
  6. Stir in the shrimp once so they become part of the omlette & then let them sit, continue to break holes in the egg between the shrimp to allow raw egg to contact the wok.
  7. Jiggle, poke & shimmy the omlette to prevent sticking until mostly cooked.
  8. Flip or turn omlette & finish cooking on other side for a few second then turn out onto warm plate & cover with foil.
  9. Return wok to heat.
  10. Add cornstarch to sauce & whisk then add to wok.
  11. Boil sauce until thick then pour over omlette.
  12. A "slight" burn on the egg tastes great with the sauce but not too much.
