Fried Eggs Stuffed with Pork and Seafood Recipe

Fried Eggs Stuffed with Pork and Seafood Recipe

Ingredients :

4 large eggs

1/2 cup chopped raw shrimps
1/2 cup cooked crab meat
1/2 cup chopped cooked pork
1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1-2 tablespoons thick coconut milk

1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup tepid water
2 teaspoons oil

Salt to taste


Method :

Fill a pan with cold water. Put in the eggs and slowly bring the pot to the boil. Stir the eggs constantly but careful not to crack them. Stir until the eggs have been simmered for 5 minutes. This helps centre the yolks, leaving an even layer of white all around and making the eggs easy to fill. Simmer for 12 minutes or until hard boiled, then run cold water into the pan to cool the eggs quickly. Shell and cut in halves lengthways.

Scoop out the yolks into a medium-size bowl and mash thoroughly with a fork. Add shrimps, crab meat and pork. cilantro leaves, pepper, salt and fish sauce. Mix well, then add as much of the coconut milk as the mixture will take without getting too moist.

Divide the yolk mixture into 8 equal portions and fill the egg whites, shaping filling to a rounded shape so that it looks like a whole egg. Dip in hatter and fry in deep hot oil for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Keep filling downwards in the oil when frying. Drain on absorbent paper and serve warm or cold. To make the batter, simply mix together water, flour, oil and salt, beating with a wooden spoon until smooth.
