Fried Egg And Oyster Sauce


I love eggs. In fact everyday can be a good day for fried or boiled eggs. Actually the yolk is preferred but can't possibly be. So the whole thing is eaten. Eggs are also the emergency ingredient in my house for a side or main dish in case I can't go the market. Well, I'm sure its the same across the board for every other household.

Lately I've cut down the number of eggs consumed in a week. Apparently women who eat too many eggs are at risk for developing high cholesterol and heart disease. That's why no more frying or boiling at my own whims and fancies. But when I do, I made simple dishes like this one - fried eggs with oyster sauce and garnished with spring onion - simple yet simply spectacular with rice porridge or as a side dish for rice itself.

Ingredients (as needed)
Eggs
Oyster sauce
Sliced spring onions
Salt (only if needed) and pepper
Oil 

Method
Heat oil. More for the fluffed up type. 
Place the round egg ring in (its optional but advisable to capture the shape)
Break egg inside the ring.
Fry as you like - either both sides or sunny side.
Season with salt (sparingly please as oyster sauce is salty too)  
Arrange fried eggs on a serving tray.
Drizzle oyster sauce over and garnish with spring onions.

  1. Ohmigosh! That looks amazing! I've never cooked with oyster sauce before...and I'm sure I'd never have thought to pair it up with eggs. Need to hit up the New Asia Market and see if they've got some for grabs :)

  2. Your plating is gorgeous! This looks like a simple, delicious dish! I try not to eat the yolks all the time either but they're definitely the best part! Lovely pictures :)

  4. My family loved eggs! They can eat eggs everyday if I let them, but since I am health conscious, I do limit their eggs intake. Now probably once or twice per week. I like your easy way of serving it!

  5. This really does amp up the flavor of eggs. Also it does make for a very elegant presentation. Oyster sauce and eggs does intrigue-another creative and delicious creation Nava!

  6. Eggs are my favourite. My husband has a family(vegetarian) history of high cholesterol. He reduced eating eggs in the fear of that. But few years ago I found out that eggs raises good cholesterol which automatically reduces your bad one. My husband eats whole egg after that almost 4 times a week and eats walnuts everyday. His cholesterol is fine.
    I am sending you two links of Dr.Oz's website, whose I am fan from as long as I am here in Canada,when he did not even have his own show.

  9. Hi

    Oyster sauce?! I never thought of using that before. Will it not be too salty?

    Next time you can try Tamago (japanese style egg) too. I am currently trying to make it too. =)

  10. Oh, this is simply delicious, Nava! We all love eggs here...whether it's in plain hard boiled, poached, fried or omelet form, we can eat it everyday! But since we know that it has high cholesterol content, I only limit serving it 2x a week.
