Prepare the shrimp and eggs
1. 1. Marinate the shrimp with the ingredients listed. Set aside.
2. 2. Place a large cup or bowl on a kitchen scale, set the unit to fluid oz, and crack the eggs into the cup. Add a 2:1 ratio of warm chicken broth (or water) to eggs. For example, if the eggs weighed 5 fluid oz in total, you’ll add 10 fluid oz of warm water. You can also choose to measure by volume (using the lines on a liquid measuring cup) or with egg shell halves (12 egg shell halves of liquid for 3 eggs).
3. 3. Season with salt and chicken bouillon powder (skip if already using chicken broth). Beat thoroughly.
Steam the eggs
1. 1. Bring a pan of water (at least 2-3 inches high) to a boil. Lower to medium heat.
2. 2. Set up your steamer, and place a bowl or plate in the middle. Strain the egg mixture onto the plate. With a spoon or paper towel, remove all the foam and bubbles on the surface.
3. 3. Cover the eggs either with an upside down plate or wrapped foil or plastic. This will prevent condensation from dripping onto the surface of the egg.
4. 4. Put the lid on the pan, and steam on medium heat for 6-7 mins (time may vary slightly based on what plate you’re using), or until the eggs are barely set.
5. 5. While you wait, mix the sauce together and slice the scallions.
6. 6. Carefully add the marinated shrimp on top, put the lid back onto the pan, and steam for another 2 minutes or until shrimp are fully cooked. No need to cover the eggs with a plate this time! In a separate pan, heat up 2-3 tbsp neutral oil.
7. 7. Carefully remove the steamed eggs from the pan. Top with scallions, the hot neutral oil, and soy sauce mixture. Enjoy!
