It is not hard to scramble eggs but not everybody knows the correct technique to ensure the texture is creamy and fluffy. You should begin by adding the eggs to a pan which is not too hot, and then turn the heat up to high. Stir the eggs almost all the time with a silicon spatula or a wooden spoon, especially when you see the curds beginning to form.

When the eggs are creamy and just a small amount of liquid remains, it is time to take them off the heat. Serve them right away while they are still hot. Scrambled eggs can be served plain or you can add chopped ham, cheese, mushrooms, or anything else you fancy. Some people like to add aromatic ingredients like garlic, hot sauce, herbs, or their favorite spices, and others like to make gourmet scrambled eggs using such ingredients as smoked salmon or shrimp.

Cooked leftover meat like chicken is another idea, but whatever you use make sure the pieces are quite small. If you are using jumbo shrimp in this recipe, cut it into smaller pieces before you begin. Serve your scrambled eggs over buttered toast or with some bacon or sausage on the side. The following recipe makes four portions, so halve it if there are only two of you. The sesame oil and soy sauce give the shrimp scrambled eggs an exotic hint of the orient. Use butter or oil in the pan, or a combination of both.

Photo Description:

The best scrambled eggs are fluffy and creamy, neither too dried-out nor too wet. Once your scrambled eggs are almost dry, it is time to serve them, since the egg will continue setting when it is off the heat (because it is so hot) and you will end up with the perfect texture. Adding shrimp to scrambled eggs gives them a gourmet flavor and this makes an indulgent breakfast, especially if you are serving other breakfast favorites on the side. Alternatively you can make this for lunch or as a light dinner. Scrambled eggs are so easy to make, once you know how to do it like a pro.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.


Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.


Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.


Thanks for visiting,


Christine
