  • 4 tsp Essential Sunflower Oil
  • 1 Essential Red Pepper, finely sliced
  • 150g Essential Beansprouts
  • 4 Essential Salad Onions, cut into thin 5cm strips
  • 150g pack Waitrose King Prawns in Coconut, Lemongrass & Lime Leaf
  • 2 tsp Cooks’ Ingredients Nam Pla Fish Sauce
  • ½ lime, juice
  • 4 Waitrose medium British Blacktail Eggs
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 handful coriander leaves, to serve (optional)


  1. Heat 2 tsp sunflower oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the pepper and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add the beansprouts and cook for another 2 minutes until steaming hot, then add the salad onions and prawns; stir fry for 1 minute until the prawns are piping hot throughout. Add the fish sauce and lime juice, cook for 1 minute more, then take off the heat.

  2. Use a fork to beat together the eggs, soy sauce and sesame oil. Heat 1 tsp sunflower oil in a 20cm nonstick frying pan or omelette pan. Add ½ the egg mixture and swirl in the pan to evenly coat the base. Cook for 3-4 minutes until set, then slide onto a warm plate. Repeat with the remaining oil and egg mixture.

  3. Pile the prawns and vegetables onto the omelettes. Scatter with coriander (if using) and serve.

Cook’s tip

Leftovers: beansprouts

Make sure your beansprouts are fully cooked through before eating. Add to stir fries, salads and noodle soups for savoury crunch.
