Home-style crisp fried eggs with green onions, chilli and oyster sauce


You'll need

250 gm beansprouts, trimmed 60 ml (¼ cup) peanut oil 4 eggs 2 tbsp oyster sauce 1 tbsp light soy sauce 50 gm (about 14) small red chillies, or to taste, seeds removed, thinly sliced diagonally 6 green onions, trimmed and white part cut into julienne (green ends discarded)

Method

  • 01
  • Divide beansprouts among four plates, set aside. Heat oil in a wok or frying pan over high heat. When oil starts to shimmer, crack in 1 egg, taking care not to break the yolk. Cook until egg just sets (20-30 seconds), then remove from wok with a slotted spatula and drain well on absorbent paper, place on top of beansprouts, then repeat with remaining eggs. Discard remaining oil, wipe wok clean.
  • 02
  • Return wok to high heat. Add sauces, bring to the boil. Add chilli and green onion and stir until just wilted (15-20 seconds). Remove from heat, stand for 30 seconds, then pour over eggs. Season with freshly ground white pepper and serve immediately.

“I went to Adelaide’s Concubine and enjoyed the home-style crisp fried eggs. Would Kenneth Ting please pass on the recipe?”
