Nyonya Cincalok Omelette 娘惹咸虾酱煎蛋

The other day i cooked this Nyonya cincalok omelette to enjoy with porridge for a light lunch.. Tasted like shrimp paste /belacan fried eggs, and one item you must add in this omelettle is onion, the sweetness from onion just perfectly contrast with salty cincalok (fermented small shrimps).

80g fresh shrimps
IMG_2355 copy 1 onion, sliced
2tbsp cincalok
1tsp light soy sauce
pepper
6tbsp cooking oil

Method
1. Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan, sauté onion till fragrant.
2. Add in fresh shrimps, sprinkle light soy sauce, sauté till prawn changed color.
3. Add pepper into eggs, pour into the pan.
4. Use your finger, squeeze out as much as water from cincalok and spread cincalok on top of the egg.
5. Once the omelette starts to set, flip it over and brown the other side.

The quality of this enamel plate is very good, thick and nice print. The owner of the shop told me that we can't find this kind of old-fashioned plate anymore. They left only few of this plates..

This looks so nice...

I hardly buy cincalok eventhough I go to Melaka because I don't know how to make delicious meal with cincalok. The omelette looks very appetizing regardless to go with rice or porridge. Yes, you are right, it is hard to get enamel plate and bowl nowadays. Wish I was wise enough to save those back when my grandma still using those!

hi sonia...
hehe, good idea to variety the old fashion omelet style. i use to cook 'telur dadar' with onion+dried small shrimps/udang geragau but this cencaluk idea will make it more easier i guess. tq anyway ;)

I've never had cincalok for a long, long time. A reminder to get one bottle when I next visit Malacca.

Jessie-CookingMoments said...

That's why you are my idol, a simple dish also looks so yummy there! I also like eating dishes with lots of onions. Mum used to cook us egg omelette with lots of onions when I was young. These days, we love to eat a cold dish, smoked salmon with spanish onions + some lemon juice, a dish that my father-in-law will prepare on family gathering.
