Dea Lonn
is a popular Foochow dish in Sitiawan.

You can only find this in a few restaurants that serve traditional dishes.

Many modern restaurants in Sitiawan
have adapted this dish 
to suit the taste buds of the majority 'foreigners' 
who came hunting for authentic Foochow dishes.

By this I mean,
 they add shredded onions, parley, chili & spring onions.
Some even added shrimps!

Originally it was just egg and oyster
fried in a pool of  fuming hot oil!

The fragrance of the crispy omelette
the taste of juicy interior was simply irresistible.

It is served hot
straight from the frying pan!

I used this frozen oyster
because I could not get fresh ones.

If you are interested in the recipe:

Dea Lonn
a handful of oyster, cleaned & drained
1 egg beaten
1 Tbsp corn flour
1/2 tsp fish sauce
salt & pepper to taste
4-5 Tbsp oil for frying (the omelette will not absorb all the oil)

1. add seasoning to beaten egg, then beat in corn flour (ok to have lumps)
2. add oyster & mix well, set aside
3. heat oil in a wok to very hot
4. to test oil, drop a little egg into it. If it floats immediately, it is ready
5. pour egg into the hot oil, swirl the pan to allow oil to crisp up the sides
6. when the bottom is golden brown, turn over to cook the other side
7. dish up with a slotted ladle to allow excess oil to drip through.
8. serve hot with chili sauce

So yummy. Thank-you Katie Foong. Yes, Judy Leong is right. Difficult to get fresh oyster here. I wonder what we can replace with?

Katie Foong: Cannot get the taste if you replace the oyster, not even with dried oyster! That's why it took me so long to come up with this dish!
