Chinese - Shrimp Egg Foo Yung

Baby Kato


I love egg foo yung,this one sounds very tasty.

All it takes is a few eggs, crisp vegetables and Asian seasonings to create an elegant dish that is perfect for breakfast or any time of the day.

To coax more flavor out of the vegetables, blanch or stir-fry before adding to the egg mixture, even if the recipe doesn't call for it. Make sure blanched vegetables are well drained.

Fish sauce adds a twist to this recipe for Egg Foo Yung, but you can substitute with soy sauce.
