Asian style fried eggs
Soft boiled eggs for breakfast with toast soldiers while convalescing or a greasy fried egg to cure a hangover.
Little orbs of nourishment, eggs are the perfect comfort food. Easy to prepare and most of us always have a few lolling around in the fridge right now.
So, why not tart up your fried eggs a little and turn them into something more than just a hangover cure. Fry the bottoms til crispy and top with some asian flavours and enjoy them in sickness and in health.
This is my entry in the NTTC July 2009 Egg Challenge.

2T peanut or rice bran oil
Heat oil in a pan until hot and shimmering. Crack egg into a small bowl or teacup and slip into the pan. I like my yolk runny with a set white, so I break the white up to ensure that it all cooks quickly in the hot pan, sprinkle lightly with sea salt. When almost cooked throw the chopped spring onions in to lightly sear.
When cooked place egg on plate and top with onions, sprinkle with sesame oil, sliced chillis and top with coriander.
Serve with steamed rice or eat simply by themselves.
