How to Cook a Korean Seaweed Omelet

This omelet is thanks to SIB, a friend who gave me a pack of Korean dried seaweed, which I had never seen or tasted before. Since no one at my home dare try and eat it raw, in my experience, almost anything tastes good with eggs, so I experimented with the seaweed and tried mixing it with eggs for breakfast, hence the name Korean Seaweed Omelet. So, here's how I made it.

Ingredients

  • Cooking oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 whole onion
  • 1 sheet of dried Korean seaweed
  • Salt

Step 5 Flip

Now flip it to cook the other side of the omelet. You'll know it's cooked when the liquid egg and seaweed mixture turns to solid. Try to toast it a bit.

Tips

  • You may use lard or butter instead of cooking oil.
  • Add salt according to your taste, because the dried seaweed is already salty.
  • Try using ketchup as a side sauce.
  • Serve with rice and a cup of green tea.
