    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

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