Stir-fried Oyster Omelette

An oyster omelette dish available at many hawker stalls and coffee shops in Penang, Malaysia. Garnished with coriander or parsley, the omelette is served with a dip made of chili sauce and garlic paste.

The oyster omelette is a dish that is widely known in Taiwan, it's also popular in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore. The dish consists of an omelette with a filling primarily composed of small oysters. Potato starch is mixed into the egg batter, giving the resulting egg wrap a thicker consistency. Pork lard is often used to fry the omelette.

Shrimp can sometimes be substituted in place of oysters; in this case, it is called shrimp omelettes ;)
