Shrimp Egg Foo Young

Total Time:
32 min
20 min
12 min

4 servings

  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup sliced bamboo shoots
  • 1/2 cup cooked small salad shrimp, or large dice medium cooked shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons green onion tops, sliced, for garnish

Place 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large pan and cook onions and cabbage over- medium high heat just until tender. Remove from heat, drain excess liquid, and reserve.

Whisk the eggs in a bowl and mix in soy sauce, spices, drained cabbage mixture, and bamboo shoots.

Using a non-stick pan over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and heat. Ladle about 4 ounces of the cabbage mixture into the hot pan, as you would for pancakes, and sprinkle the small shrimp evenly on top of each. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until edges start to brown and when jiggled, it slides in the pan. Flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes until cooked through. Garnish with scallions.

Cook's Note: If Egg Foo Young becomes brown too quickly, finish it by baking in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for a few minutes.

Eggs aren't as tiresome when they are incredibly delicious! I've been living a low carb lifestyle for a while now and was having trouble with breakfast. Let me tell you these are some eggs I could wake up to very happily! This is actually a very nice dish for a brunch or a quick supper also. I used 2 cups of a cole slaw bag that was on sale for a dollar! I also used 1/2 a bag of frozen shrimp that was on sale for $4.99. So, not only was this delicious, it was less than a dollar per serving. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have 2 recipes for the sauce. Sauce 1: 1 tsp cornstarch, 1 tsp sugar, 1 tsp vinegar, 2 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce, 1/2 C water. Combine all ingredients in small sauce pan. Cook stirring constantly until mixture boils. Continue cooking and stirring for 1- 2 minutes. Keep sauce warm while frying egg foo young mixture. Sauce 2: 1 Tbsp cornstarch, 1 Tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp instant beef bouillon granules, 1 tsp sugar, 1 C cold water. Follow instructions above. item not reviewed by moderator and published
for the gravy: 1 jar of chicken gravy and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, it's really good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is wonderful. Just as good as local takeout, but healthier, faster, and cheaper! Still looking for a good brown gravy recipe...... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't have any shrimp around, so I used some leftover roast pork instead. It was great and I think the recipe will adapt easily to beef, chicken, or pork. I was craving more veggies so I tossed in a handful of diced celery, frozen mixed veggies (green beans, carrots, peas, & corn), and mushrooms when I sauteed the onions. That addition made it not as low carb, but it was tasty. Instead of canola oil, I recommend using wok oil. It's available in the Asian foods in your grocery store. I think the mix of soybean, garlic, ginger, sesame, and onion oils is much lighter and better suited to preparing Asian dishes. I also used a packet of dry chicken gravy mix to whip up some of the traditional gravy. It was perfect. This is just about the best Egg Foo Young I've ever had and certainly easier and cheaper than getting Chinese takeout. I think this recipe would be excellent even without my additions. I've tried several other Egg Foo Young recipes that left me unimpressed. I think the garlic powder and soy sauce in this one make it heads above the rest! Mmm, I'm hungry just thinking about it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Simple to make. Tastes like regular Egg Foo Young. No sauce but the pancake is so flavorful it doesn't matter. Leftovers heat up great in the toaster oven. This is a staple of my low cal, good carb diet. item not reviewed by moderator and published
