  • In a mixing bowl, crack and whisk together the eggs, green onions, soy sauce and sesame oil together until smooth for about 30 seconds. Do not overmix.
  • Then in a well seasoned wok or non-stick pan, bring it to medium heat. Add cooking oil. If you’re cooking in a wok, allow the oil to smoke (if you’re not using a wok skip this step).
  • Next toss in your shrimp and fry until 50% cooked. Do not cook all the way through. Then lower the heat to LOW setting.
  • Pour your egg mixture in. Use a spatula to pull the edges of the omelette inward, continually doing this until your eggs are cooked, silky and glossy. Once cooked, remove off heat and enjoy! If you like your omelette more cooked, you can brown the omelette and it'll taste really delicious as well.
