Oyster Omelet

Oyster omelet has its origins in Fujian and it’s a snack food that features one of Fujian’s most plentiful seafood– oysters. If you are an oyster fan like me, this is a great recipe to make. Frozen oysters can be used if fresh oysters are not available in your area.

Ingredients:

4 large eggs

1 tablespoon of cooking oil

12 oysters, shucked

1 tablespoon of potato starch

1/2 cup of cold water

leafy greens (e.g. spinach, bok choy)

1 whole scallions (finely chopped)

a pinch of salt and ground white pepper
