How To Cook Oyster Omelette

Oyster Omelette

Singaporean all time favourite! Oyster Omelette. The perfect marriage of just-cooked-to-perfection oysters, eggs, a somewhat crisp finish of the flour mixture is what to expect from this dish.

Recipe for Oyster Omelette

Ingredients for Oyster Omelette:

  • 10 large fresh oysters
  • 2 Tbs cornflour
  • 1 Tbs rice flour
  • 8 Tbs water
  • 1 Tbs oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs sake rice wine
  • 1 pinch white pepper
  • 5 sprigs coriander, to garnish
  • 1 spring onion, for garnish


  1. Wash the oysters in cold water and drain well.
  2. Mix both cornflour and rice flour together with the water to make a fairly thin batter.
  3. Heat a large heavy frying pan until very hot and add oil. Pour in the batter and cook for about 15 seconds until batter is half set before adding in the eggs.
  4. When the eggs are almost set, make a hole in the centre by pushing the egg and batter mixture to the side of the pan. Pour in a little more oil and fry the garlic for a few seconds.
  5. Mix, then season with soy sauce, sake and pepper. Add oysters and cook just long enough to heat through.
  6. Garnish and serve immediately with fresh coriender leaves and spring onions.

As the oyster has such a delicate flavour, oysters are best eaten raw unless they are cooked very lightly in a matter of minutes or seconds.

    And how to make that wonderful vinegar-based chilli sauce which accompanies the oyster omelette? I can recognize vinegar in it and, perhaps, ground dried chili? The best I tried so far is from an oyster omelette stall in Dunman foodcourt
