A simple Chinese scallion omelette with Maggi seasoning and topped with oyster sauce. This recipe is so yummy, it will become part of your weekly meal rotation!
This is one easy and delicious weekend recipe! Making a Chinese scallion omelette only takes 15 minutes and can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
This Asian version is made using a little Maggi seasoning – one of the yummiest and most used sauces in our kitchen – and a mix of green onions, bean sprouts and carrots. It’s simple, healthy and so good!
I love adding a little broth or sauce to omelettes for the simple fact that they make the whole thing taste better. It’s a simple and easy way to bump up the flavors and get creative in the kitchen!
This Chinese scallion omelette reminds me of dashi tamago yaki – one of my all time favorites.
Made with eggs, dashi broth, a little soy sauce and chopped green onions, it’s a very popular dish served in Japan and one we make at home all the time.
The idea behind both omelettes is the same; season the eggs with some form of umami packed ingredient, fill them with with veggies and top with even more umami. The result? Moist, fluffy, crunchy, savory, salty, pungent, bitter, spicy… The best.
I guarantee this is the most delectable egg dish you can make at home in under 15 – and one that also looks really pretty!

Tasty!! I left out the Maggi seasoning and used a splash of Oyster sauce instead. Nice combination of silky egg and crunchy veg!
