  • 3/4 teaspoon :fish sauce: or :white soy sauce:
  • oil: to cover your pan about 1 cm (1/2") deep

  2. Crack the egg into a bowl. Add the fish sauce and pepper, and whisk with a fork until mixed and frothy.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the oil at a slowish rate, so that it’s a stream of egg hitting the hot oil.
