Thai Omelet with Oyster

This is a very simple dish to make. Clams or shrimp make a great substitution for oyster.

Serves: 2


  • ⅓ cup white vinegar
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • 3 small cucumbers, peeled and sliced
  • 1 Thai chili pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 small shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. minced ginger
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil


  • In a medium saucepan, bring white vinegar, sugar, water, and salt to a boil to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat and let cool. Transfer to a medium bowl and add cucumbers, pepper, shallot, and ginger. Toss to combine. Let the salad rest for 20 minutes.
  • Combine eggs, oyster sauce and soy sauce in a bowl.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, add oil, and wait until oil is very hot. Add the egg mixture and fry until one side is done, about 1 minute, tilting the pan to spread the egg evenly. Flip and cook on the other side.
  • Remove from heat and serve.
