Ingredients
  

  • 6 oz shrimp shelled and deveined
  • 4 large eggs (at room temperature-very important)
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • salt and white pepper or to taste

Instructions
 

  • Clean your shrimp and take your eggs out of the refrigerator early since it is best to cook them at room temperature. Beat your eggs in a large bowl and add salt, white pepper, and sesame oil. 
  • Chop the scallions. 
  • Add the canola oil to a hot pan.Add the garlic and stir for 30 second (be careful not to burn).
  • Add and toss in your shrimp until they just turn pink. This will be very fast. Add the egg to the shrimp.
  • Swirl the oil around the wok thoroughly and pour in your egg mixture. Use a wooden spoon or spatula and fold the eggs gently but quickly, kind of like you’re making scrambled eggs.
  • Once the eggs look done transfer to a plate, garnish with scallion and serve with steamed rice.
