#3144: MAMA Oriental Kitchen Stir Fried Salted Egg – Thailand

#3144: MAMA Oriental Kitchen Stir Fried Salted Egg - Thailand

I was contacted by a contact over at Thai President Foods about a new variety – and here it is! Salted egg. This may be an unfamiliar flavor to westerners, so here’s a little about it from Wikipedia –

salted duck egg is a Chinese preserved food product made by soaking duck eggs in brine, or packing each egg in damp, salted charcoal. In Asian supermarkets, these eggs are sometimes sold covered in a thick layer of salted charcoal paste. The eggs may also be sold with the salted paste removed, wrapped in plastic, and vacuum packed. From the salt curing process, the salted duck eggs have a briny aroma, a gelatin-like egg white and a firm-textured, round yolk that is bright orange-red in color.

Salted duck eggs are normally boiled or steamed before being peeled and eaten as a condiment to congee or cooked with other foods as a flavoring. The egg white has a sharp, salty taste. The orange red yolk is rich, fatty, and less salty. The yolk is prized and is used in Chinese mooncakes to symbolize the moon.

Salted eggs can also be made from chicken eggs, though the taste and texture will be somewhat different, and the egg yolk will be less rich.

Salted eggs sold in the Philippines undergo a similar curing process, with some variation in ingredients used. They are dyed red to distinguish them from fresh duck eggs.

Alright – let’s check this out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg with a sprinkly of NuTek Salt For Life, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and coriander. Before you start, yes I know – salted egg is most definitely not a just an egg with salt on it. The noodles came out nicely – gauge and chew very much on point. I wasn’t expecting the texture – very, very good with the seasonings. A spicy and fascinating melange of flavor including a kind of egg yolk smashed kind of feel to it that was really nice. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850987148651.

Here’s one I found up at the Osaka market at Yaohan Centre in Richmond BC, Canada. I found this a few weeks before Christmas and usually like to peruse the interesting specials this store has around that time. They had some really interesting things like sake flavored Kit Kats and other things. Kind of expensive. But I did find this, and it wasn’t too pricy. Let’s hit it!
