   IN A MEDIUM BOWL, lightly beat eggs with salt. Over medium-high heat,

   When hot, add shallots and garlic, stir-fry for 30 seconds. Increase to
   high heat, add snow peas, seconds later, bean sprouts; quickly stir-fry for
   almost 1 minute or until vegetables are tender but still crisp. Toss in the
   shrimp and barbecued pork; stir-fry for 30 seconds to heat through. Remove
   from the heat. Add coriander to beaten eggs; mix together. Reheat wok over
   medium-high heat until hot. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil and when hot,
   pour in 1/3 cup of egg mixture. Fry until bottom is golden brown and the
   edges are crisp (about 1 minute). Turn patty over and brown other side

   After frying omelets, pour off all the oil. Set wok over high heat, add
   chicken stock, oyster sauce, sugar and white pepper; bring to a boil. Stir
   in cornstarch mixture until sauce thickens (about 30 seconds). Add sesame
   oil. Makes about 1 cup.
