Instructions
  1. Mix together the rice flour, corn starch and water to make a slurry. Set aside.
  2. Place the well drained oyster meat in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs and mix together well.
  3. Mushrooms, coriander, and garlic all prepped. I used 75 grams of Shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced, and coriander in place of the spring onion.
  4. Heat the oil in a large non stick pan then add the garlic and fry until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
  5. To the pan, add the mushrooms and oysters and stir in the flour slurry, stir to remove any lumps.
  6. When the mixture is lump free, add the soy sauce, sugar, white pepper, and spring onions, cook, stirring often, for about 30 seconds to a minute. Remove from heat.
  7. Serve with rice on the side.
Recipe Notes

I buy oysters from local fishermen for 50 Baht/pint. This is low cost. If sourcing from Tesco, you might be over $1 per serving. I will verify the Tesco cost.

Excellent as written, and can be tailored in many ways. I will be using the smaller oyster meat, larger than what Tesco offers and what I use is sourced from a local fisherman. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

  1. Heat some lard or cooking oil of your choice in a large non stick pan, you want about 1/2 inch or so for shallow frying, no need to deep fry these. Heat to just before smoking.
  2. In a shallow bowl, mix together the flour, pepper, and salt. Add the eggs to another shallow bowl and lightly beat them. Place the breadcrumbs in another shallow bowl. The pan is to my left out of view, so you can see the progression from right to left.
  3. Coat the oysters in flour, then coat with egg, then coat with breadcrumbs.
  4. Place in the hot oil, but do not over crowd the pan, work in batches, and cook until golden brown.
  5. Turning the larger ones if not covered in oil.
  6. Drain on paper towels.
  7. Serve with a dipping sauce as desired. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

I get fresh shucked oysters, about a pint, for 50 Baht, with no math involved this is low cost for 4 servings.

Thai omelets are generally airy and fluffy cooked eggs, not folded over. This is quick and easy, served with rice on the side, a simple and filling meal for 3-4 people. Oyster meat, these are small oysters, the meat is 1 to 1 1/2 inches long, is mixed into the eggs before going into the pan, and is delicious. My wife made this today, 7 June 2018 for breakfast for herself, her mother, and I.

Instructions
  1. Put a wok or non stick pan on high heat and add about 1/2 cup of cooking oil. For a non stick with the rounded sides, a 10 inch pan is perfect and you want about 1/4 inch of oil on the bottom of the pan.
  2. While the pan is heating, break eggs into a bowl. Add the fish sauce to the eggs, and beat with a fork until frothy. Add the oyster meat and spring onion, and mix that in.
  3. When the oil just starts to smoke, turn the heat to low and quickly pour in the beaten eggs, it will fluff before your eyes.
  4. Using a spatula, spread the oysters out a bit, they normally collect in the center, then lift the edges to get the liquid part of the eggs onto the pan, do this several times.
  5. Keep checking the bottom and when getting nice and browned and set well (remember, from pouring into the pan to flipping takes only 45 seconds to a minute) flip the omelet over, move the loose oysters onto the omelet, 20-30 seconds later, the bottom should be browning nicely. Here the eggs are set well on the top, and ready for flipping.
  6. Flipped, and some stray oysters being moved around a bit on to the omelet.
  7. Slide from the pan onto a plate and serve with rice on the side.
  8. Place the omelet in the center of the table, give a bowl of hot rice to each person, enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Variants: 1. Add a few drops of lime juice or vinegar for a even more fluffier omelette.

  1. For the shrimp, cook them with any method you prefer, such as steaming, boiling, or sauteing. If the shrimp you are using are sort of big, go ahead and chop them into 3/4 inch pieces. For these, I just dropped them into a small pot of boiling water, when they turn pink, drain and drop into cold water to stop the cooking process.
  2. Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat well, season with white pepper powder as desired. Get everything else chopped, here, everything ready.
  3. Heat a large non stick pan with a good splash of oil, hot but not smoking.
  4. When the oil is hot, add the shrimp, spring onion, and cilantro into the eggs and mix together.
  5. Pour the egg mixture all at once into the pan, it will puff as well.
  6. Use a spatula and lift up the sides to let the egg mixture run onto the hot pan. Cook until the bottom is set and golden brown.
  7. Flip the omelet over and cook until the bottom is now set.
  8. Flip one more time and serve. This was my dinner last night, can also serve family style and just place the plate in the center of the table and everyone can dig in.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Instructions
  1. For the crab, you can use canned (drained), fresh picked, or even imitation. If using imitation, just cut each crab stick into 1/4 inch pieces and use your hands to break them apart, very easy and will be the first way I prepare this.
  2. Mix up the filling in a bowl, room temp, you want the filling to be good and soft as you are going to spread this after the first slice of bread is in the pan. Heat a non stick pan on medium low or low heat.
  3. Spread some mayo on two slices of bread, place one slice, mayo side down on parchment paper, spread some filling on that slice, be generous, then top with the second slice of bread, mayo side up. Place in the hot pan.
  4. When the bottom is golden brown, flip and cook the other side until golden brown.
  5. Remove from pan, cut in half from corner to corner, or best you can with homemade bread, serve.
  6. Repeat for additional sandwiches.
  7. Serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

The Cream cheese will cost about 60 Baht/125 grams. The imitation crab will cost about 50 Baht/140 grams. (When I buy fresh crab, I will price this once I pick 140 grams.) Figure 3 servings, this is about $1.08 per serving.
