Foo Yong Egg

I was out in my garden almost the whole weekend tidying up some bits and pieces, preparing for autumn, I can only be thankful that weather still quite of summery feel. Splendid.
Of course I try to make full use of the excellent sunlight to capture the best shot of my late summer flowers, still blooming wonderfully. I'm sharing the pictures at the end of this post, well it's taken with my new toy, Nikon D5000. Good DSLR for a beginner like me in this field.
Taking a break from Dim Sum recipes, I'm sharing with you a really simple one meal dish that anyone can cook. I had it when I'm busy and feeling rather lazy to cook. It's Foo Yong Egg. This is basically omelette with some ingredients like onion, peppers, seafood and Chinese sausages.

Foo Yong Egg
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 lap cheong (Chinese sausages)
  • 1/2 pepper bell
  • 1/2 green chillis/red chillis
  • 1 medium onion
  • 6 prawns
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Dash of white pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  1. Sliced thinly the green chillis and sausage. Diced the prawn, pepper and onion.
  2. Whisk the egg with fork, add in salt and pepper.
  3. Heat the oil in a non stick pan on high heat. When it's hot and slightly smoky add in the sausage and let it fry till fragance, then add in onion, chillis and pepper and stir fry. Then add in diced prawn and quickly stir fry. Using your frying spatula, lightly press the ingredient and lay them flat.
  4. Then pour in the beaten eggs, move the pan so that eggs will coat evenly the fried ingredients. Turn the fire to medium/low to avoid burnt on the underside. Once the eggs are not runny, flip half the eggs and continue to let it cook.
  5. Transfer to a plate and serve with rice. Quick and yummy.
