Bitter Melon Omelette

Australian Eggs Bitter Melon Omelette Credit Trent Van Der Jagt2


  • 3 eggs
  • 150g bitter melon, deseeded and finely sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • Fish sauce, to taste
  • Light soy sauce, to taste
  • White pepper, to taste
  • Coriander, to taste
  • Oil


  1. Lightly whisk the eggs together with a fork or whisk. Season with fish sauce, light soy sauce and white pepper. 
  2. In a non-stick pan, heat a little oil over medium heat.
  3. Sauté the garlic until fragrant, a little colour doesn’t hurt.
  4. Add the bitter melon and sauté until slightly tender.
  5. Add the eggs and allow them to set. Move the solids around, allowing the raw egg to continue to cook. Taste a little to check your seasoning.
  6. Once the eggs are 90% cooked, slide the omelette onto a plate (they’ll continue to cook from the residual heat).
  7. Garnish with coriander. Great served with a side of rice and a little extra fish sauce.
