O is for Oyster Omelette

A fellow blogger ask me for this recipe. Something I learnt from Pauline D Loh. Here's the recipe.

200g oysters(I used frozen pack)
3 eggs(beaten)
50g Sweet Potato Starch
100ml water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground white pepper
fresh coriander leaves as garnish

1. mix the starch with water, stir till well mixed.
2. Add salt to beaten eggs
3. Heat up the frying pan with cooking oil
4. Scoop a ladle full of starch mixture and pour onto the hot pan.
5. When it starts to crisp on the sides of the pan, pour egg mix on top.
6. Let it cook for a while about 1 min or so.
7. Add some oysters on top.
8. Next, pour the remaining starch mixture on top and rest of oysters.
9. Slowly flipped it over to crisp the other side.
10. Serve hot, garnish with pepper and coriander leaves

I read a recipe somewhere that includes chopped chinese chives and also a bit of coriander (ketumbar?) to the mix. Made it only once as oysters here are BIG and also expensive,but taste was pretty good. It did use the potato starch too.

Hi Chris, this recipe was something that Pauline's late grand father use to make. More like a heirloom recipe. In its original form. While it may be difficult to find sweet potato flour/starch in other parts of the world, many versions of the authentic Oyster Omelette have evolved. :)
