    This isn't quite right. The shrimp (or prawns) and scrambled eggs I've had from the restaurants use a little chicken broth, oyster sauce and some other things. It changes the flavor of the eggs slightly, enough to make it worth ordering out rather than making it at home ala omelets.

    So good and simple, with Chinese tones. Great, different breakfast!

    This was soo good! We had it with a vegetable side dish for dinner and LOVED it! Plus I love dishes that are quickly made - so this one is perfect. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for CQ 2014

    Made for the Culinary Quest 2014 - Altho you described this aptly as a 1-dish-meal, I took a different view as I awoke today. I scaled this easy-fix recipe down to 1 serving & enjoyed it for breakfast w/my juice & coffee. I used Icelandic baby shrimp vs a larger size. Man, it was so good & I felt so decadent starting my day w/your recipe. Having had my guilty pleasure alone, I expect I will share it w/Siggi & his brother for our weekly Sat brunch after their walk. Boy will they be impressed! Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
