So my family and I often eat Tasty Garden in Arcadia. One of the dishes that my brother’s fiance likes to get is this fluffy scrambled egg dish with shrimp in it.I tried to recreate this dish when I was living in my apartment once, but overcooked the eggs. =( the key to this dish is adding water to make fluffy eggs. I made this for lunch today, and actually came out with better results.
Directions: Crack three eggs into a bowl. Add soy sauce, sugar, and water. Scramble with a whisk or a fork. Slice one green onion and add to egg mixture. Set Aside.
Take clean jumbo shrimp and marinate it in salt, pepper, and chili pepper powder. Heat up a pan at medium heat. Add a teaspoon of olive oil. Cook shrimp until it becomes pink. Remove shrimp from pan and set aside.
Add tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. Swirl the olive oil around so it covers the whole pan. Add the egg mixture. With a spatula, drag the edges towards the center, allowing the uncooked egg mixture to spread out to the edges. Continue pulling the edges towards the center, until about half of the egg mixture is cooked. Add the shrimp to the egg mixture and continue pulling, and slowly folding the eggs over the shrimp.
You have to do this quickly to ensure that the eggs do not get overcooked, and that you end up with fluffy eggs in the end.
It’s a quick and easy dish, and definitely filling.
Try it out!
