This is another super yummy dish I grew up on that can be a bit addicting, especially for salt lovers. It’s definitely salty but not salty from salt, salty from the fish sauce and dried shrimp. There’s something tastefully satisfying when you take a salty bite then follow it with a bite of something not salty like rice, which this dish is typically paired with. Some other popular combos include kimchi and rice or salty eggs and rice or soy sauce and rice.
This recipe takes about 30 minutes total to put together & cook and the great thing is that everything is mixed, steamed and eaten out of one bowl.
I hope ya’ll enjoy this recipe. Happy Cooking!
LET’S START COOKING!!!!!!!
First we’ll start with the ingredients. Dried Shrimp. Crimini Mushrooms (use wood ear fungus if you have it on hand). Eggs. Fish Sauce and Olive Oil.
You need to soak the dried shrimp in water for a few hours to soften them up
I’m using 4 eggs this time around. Go ahead and crack all the eggs into the bowl. This is the same bowl you’ll steam in.
Clean and slice up your mushrooms. I’m using crimini because I forgot I had wood ear fungus tucked away in my Asian drawer. The crimini has an earthy flavor but if you have wood ear fungus you’ll want to use it too because it adds even more flavor and texture to the steamed eggs.
The Wood Ear Fungus or Black Fungus comes dried. You have to soak in water for a bit to soften it up.
Alright, now we are gonna throw the shrimp and crimini’s into the egg mix and gently mix everything together
Add a tbsp of olive oil
Add two tbsp of fishy sauce
Add some cracked pepper
Put the bowl with the egg mixture into a pan. Add just enough water that it covers about an inch of the bowl when you put the bowl inside the pan. Put on the lid and cook (steam) on medium for 20 minutes.
The finished product is fluffy. You can serve/eat directly out of the bowl you steamed everything in. Actually it’s probably best because if you try and take it out to plate it will loose it’s shape. Serve this as a side dish or with steamed rice. I always like to serve it with an extra side of fishy sauce. mmmmmm. Do not add salt!!!! The fish sauce is your salt.
NEW RECIPE. Vietnamese Steamed Eggs 👍🏻 This is another dish I grew up on and ❤. It's more on the salty side but not salty from salt, salty from the fish sauce and dried shrimp. I love the balance of eating salty followed by a bite of plain starchy rice. It's just so satisfying. Like Kimchi and rice or salty eggs and rice or salty shrimp and rice. .
