Shrimp, onions, eggs – 2 ways

I’ve written about various recipes used for lamb; in this entry, I’ll show you 2 recipes using just shrimp, onions and eggs!  Fewer ingredients means easier and less complicated cooking.  All you need is to stock your kitchen with spices, sauces and good cooking boozes! 😛  Wines, sherry and ales really enhance the flavour of food.


First, a gorgeous frittata.  My man prefers the eggs to not be too cooked, so I left the top slightly runny.  Melt butter at medium heat and mix in some good old teriyaki sauce.  Fry the julienned onions for about 2 to 3 minutes.  Stir in the shrimp, then season with mixed herbs and Japanese red pepper.

Once the shrimp has turned pink and the onions softened, lower the heat to the lowest setting and stir in enough beaten eggs to cover the mixture.  Cover your skillet and let the eggs set.  Serve immediately once you’re satisfied with the done-ness of your eggs.  Voila!


The second involves the almost identical cooking process.  The only differences lie in the condiments used and the number of eggs.  Instead of teriyaki sauce, mix the melted butter with Japanese shoyu.  Substitute ground black pepper for the Japanese red pepper.  Once the shrimp and onion are cooked, stir in eggs and stir like you would for scrambled eggs.

There you have it.  Healthy eating doesn’t need to be an obsession.  It’s actually pretty delicious!

Wishing you fun,
