Perfect with steamed rice and a simple stir-fried vegetable, this Thai street food staple takes less than 10 minutes to make, and its funky-yet-familiar taste is totally satisfying.
Simple Thai-Style OmeletServes one
1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
2 green onions
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Thinly slice the green onions. In a bowl, mix together the eggs and fish sauce until frothy. Add the green onions and stir.
Heat the oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat until very hot. Pour in the egg mixture and cook until browned and crispy on one side, 1-2 minutes. Flip and cook until the other side is browned but the inside is still soft, 1-2 minutes. (The omelet can also be folded in half after about a minute and browned on both sides, if you don't feel comfortable flipping it all at once.) Serve with steamed jasmine rice and sriracha sauce, if desired.
Optional add-ins: Ground chicken or pork (cook the meat in the oiled pan before adding the egg mixture), shallots, chopped cilantro or other fresh herb.
