Stir Fried Shrimp with Eggs and Peas

This homey dish, Stir Fried Shrimp with Eggs and Peas is also very popular in Chinese restaurants. The prawns/shrimps used should be very fresh. However I can’t find any live prawns here to make this dish, so  i use the the frozen, raw ones instead, they are also ok . This dish is like cooking scrambled eggs with prawns. Both of the smell and taste of the eggs with prawns are so good and tempting. No wonder a lot of Chinese people love this dish.

This Stir Fried Shrimp with Eggs and Peas dish looks simple and is very easy to make. But frying smooth and silky eggs needs some practices and experiences. I’d like to share you  a little trick  to cook smooth scrambled eggs. Just add a bit of milk into the beaten eggs, yet not too much, as you don’t want the eggs too runny. Most importantly, the eggs cannot be overcooked.

Ingredients for Stir Fried Shrimp with Eggs and Peas recipe:

4 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/2 pound raw shrimp, shelled and deveined and patted very, very dry
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Method to cook Stir Fried Shrimp with Eggs and Peas

1, Combine shrimp, salt, pepper, cornstarch and sesame oil in a bowl, let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes to marinate.

2, In a wok or large saute pan over high heat, add 1 tablespoon cooking oil, swirling to coat the wok. When the oil is very hot (hold your hand 6″ above the wok surface), add the shrimp (the shrimp should sizzle loudly upon contact) and spread out around the cooking surface. Let fry, untouched for 1 minute.

3, Flip shrimp and fry for an additional minute, or until cooked through. Remove the shrimp from wok to a plate, leaving as much cooking oil in the wok as possible.

4, Keep the heat on high, add the garlic and sliced chilies and fry until fragrant and the garlic is crispy, about 30 seconds. Remove from wok to a small dish and wipe the wok clean with paper towels. Return the wok to high heat and add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil. When the oil is hot (a drop of egg should sizzle immediately), pour in the eggs and gently stir for 1 minute, until almost set but still a little runny in the middle. Season the egg with salt and add the shrimp and the peas to the wok and stir to mix well until the eggs are completely cooked through.

5, Dish to serving plate and top with the fried garlic and chilies. Enjoy this Stir Fried Shrimp with Eggs and Peas dish.
