    Barb Gertz's Note:

    This is a very simple dish similar to making a omelet. The difference is in the sauce. The crab and shrimp can be substituted with other vegetables, grilled tofu, cooked chicken or grilled fish, just use your imagination. When using hard vegetables such as root vegetables, blanch them slightly in hot salted water first. Egg Foo Yong is best served with a fresh fruit salad.

      I'm giving this recipe 5 stars because of the flavor combination. I personally will serve this over rice next time, and use a warming tray. It had gotten cold too fast to enjoy thoroughly. I feel that it could use a bit more oyster sauce and instead of thickening it with cornstarch I will use arrowroot. Arrowroot doesn't need water to keep from clumping and it doesn't drown the flavors. All in all, I enjoyed it and will do this again. Thank you Barb!

      This is a very tasty omelette, I used fresh prawns and canned crabmeat, and it worked out well. I chopped the zucchini and did more of a scramble with the mixture. Then to serve I put it in 2 chinese bowls packed it down, then upturned the bowls on to a plate. It comes out like a timbale, put some shredded lettuce around and poured the sauce over the egg mixture. Thanks Barb.
