Dried Shrimps Omelette
I bought these tiny dried shrimps with shell on a couple of weeks ago to use as a flavouring for one of my dishes last week and now I have a lot of spare and was wondering how to use this on other dishes. First, I tried to fry a small batch, which ended up in my tummy just after cooking, I just realized it was so good and you can easily snack on it, very crispy, so much flavour which gave me the idea of cooking it omelette style. I then fried another batch added it on beaten eggs and the result was a new breakfast item that I guess will be a regular in our house. It’s quite simple just two ingredients Dried Shrimps and Eggs, it’s so tasty enough you don’t need any other seasonings.
Just a note to Filipinos, this is not the hibe. this is way much smaller than hibe and this still contains the heads and shells.
- 1 cup dried shrimps
- 4 pcs eggs, beaten
- In a pan heat oil then cook dried shrimps until crispy. Remove from pan then set aside.
- Combine cooked shrimps and beaten eggs, mix then set aside.
- Using the same pan, remove excess oil then divide egg mixture in three parts. Pour one part into the pan then cook in low heat until firm on one side. Do it with the remaining mixture.
