Steamed Egg Custard With Shrimp


  • 8-10 pieces of peeled shrimp seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/3 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of soy sauce
  • 2 tsp of water
  • Few drops of sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp of diced scallion


  • First, marinate the shrimp with salt and black pepper
  • Crack 3 large eggs and scramble it. Add 1 cup of water and 1/3 tsp of salt. Let it go through a fine sieve to get rid of the bubbles. If there is any egg left in the sieve, you just use a spatula to press it down.
  • Put this in the steamer. Steam it on high heat for about 6 minutes.
  • 6 minutes later - you can place the shrimp on top of the egg.
  • Cover it. Let it cook for another 2 minutes. What we are looking for is the shrimp to turn pink.
  • Take it out. Combine 1 tsp of soy sauce, 2 tsp of water, few drops of sesame oil together and pour it into the egg. Sprinkle some diced spring onion on top and you are done.
