Asian Fusion Shrimp Egg Custard w/ Scallion Oil Drizzle


Do you like Chinese Steamed Egg Custard?  When we were in China to adopt our beautiful daughters, we had the best savory egg custards! Our girls were babies, and they loved this delicate silky food. The nannies gave it to the children regularly as part of their daily meals, and I learned how to make it at home, so they could continue to enjoy it.  I changed up this recipe of traditional Chinese Egg Custard by baking them and incorporating Coconut Milk and Macadamia Nut Oil, although there are so many variations depending on the province you are visiting.  This recipe is one the family asks for regularly, and it is easy and kid friendly, but looks and tastes fancy enough to serve as an appetizer at a dinner party or festive occasion. Adults love it too! It is nutritious with two eggs per serving, shrimp and good fat.

Ingredients:

8 Eggs

32 shelled and deveined small shrimp, steamed

1 1/2 Cups Bone Broth or Chicken Stock

1/2 Cup Coconut Milk, Full Fat SCD Legal no Additives

3/4 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt

Pinch of White Pepper

Duck Fat for Greasing the Ramekins

For the Scallion Oil:

2 fresh scallions green parts only, sliced

1/2 Cup Macadamia Nut Oil or Olive Oil

1/2 teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt

Directions:

Preheat Oven 350º degrees. Grease 4 Ramekins with Duck Fat, set aside. To make your Scallion Oil, place sliced scallions, macadamia oil and 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt in a small food processor and blend until emulsified with a few bits of green scallion flecks, set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together your 8 eggs, bone broth, coconut milk, Himalayan Pink Salt and a pinch of white pepper.  Stir in 3 Tablespoons of scallion oil and whisk again. Pour evenly into the four ramekins. Place 5 shrimp in the center part of each ramekin. They will sink, that is good! Place ramekins in a roasting pan or a pan with sides, and pour boiling water into the pan so it comes halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake 350º degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, just until set but still slightly jiggly in the middle. Remove from oven and top with three shrimp artfully arranged and drizzle each with 2 teaspoons of scallion oil. They should cool for about 5 to 10 minutes before serving so you don’t burn your tongue.
