Rolled Seaweed and Egg Omelette
Korean egg roll with seaweed recipe
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time8 mins
Total Time13 mins
- 5 extra large eggs
- 1 Tbsp rice wine mirim
- 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
- 1 1/2 dried seaweed sheets (1 sheet size is about 19cm x 20.5cm or 7.5 inch x 8 inch)
- Some cooking oil
Break the eggs in a medium sized mixing bowl and beat the eggs lightly. To give a smooth texture, sieve through the eggs into another bowl. Add the rice wine and salt and whisk them well. Move the egg mixture into a measuring cup with a handle so that it’s easier to pour it out.
Cut two dried seaweed sheets into half. So you should have four 9.5 cm x 20.5 cm (3.75 inch x 8 inch) seaweed sheets at hand but we will be only using three of these sheets.
Heat the pan on medium low heat and add some cooking oil. Spread it throughout the pan. Reduce the heat to low.
Pour out a thin layer of egg mixture onto the pan and spread it by tilting the pan. Once the edge of the egg is cooked and the top of the egg is about 80 to 85% cooked, add one seaweed sheet on top of the egg and start rolling the egg with a spatula or chopsticks. Push aside the rolled egg (to the right) and brush some cooking oil in the empty space (left side of the pan).
Pour out another thin layer of egg mixture on the empty space and when the top of the egg is about 80 to 85 % cooked, add one seaweed sheet on top of the egg and start rolling the egg with a spatula or chopsticks. Repeat this step until the egg mixture is used up. (Probably just one more left if you’re using the same sized pan as me.)
Take out the rolled egg and cool it down for 5 to 10 mins on a cutting board. Slice it into bite size pieces. Serve.
