Chaoshan Oyster Omelette
The oyster omelette is a dish that is widely known for its savoury taste in Taiwan, Fujian and Chaoshan, as well as many parts of Asia. But today I want to talk about the Chaoshan Oyster Omelette.
The dish consists of an omelette with a filling primarily composed of small oysters. Starch (typically potato starch) is mixed into the egg batter, giving the finished egg wrap a thicker consistency. Pork lard is often used to fry the omelette. Depending on regional variations, a savoury sauce may then be poured on top of the omelette for added taste.  Spicy or chili sauce mixed with lime juice is often added to provide an intense kick. 
 Traditionally, most oyster omelette calls for some sort of starches or batter in the recipe, but not this one. Now, I made a different kind of oyster omelettes. I call it “easy” because it’s really easy and use less ingredients. It's very appropriate if you are looking for quick, easy and yummy omelette recipe. 
Firstly, Rinse the fresh oyster and make sure there is no more sands and drain. If you are using canned oysters, drain the juice and rinse briefly with clean water and drain.
Secondly, Beat the egg, add in oyster, spring onion, seasonings and mix well.
Thirdly, In a large non-stick skillet, heat up the oil. Once it's hot enough, pour in the egg mixture into the pan. When the eggs start to coagulate, use your spatula to push the edge of the eggs towards the center to let the runny egg mixture flow to the bottom of the pan. Once the bottom is cooked, you should attempt to flip the egg over to let the other side cook . Alternatively, you can use your spatula to cut the eggs into more manageable pieces and flip them to let it cook until eggs are no longer runny.
Fourthly, Turn off the heat and serve immediately.
