  • 2 British Lion eggs
  • 3 tablespoons frozen soya beans, thawed
  • 50g peeled prawns
  • 25g beansprouts
  • 10g pickled ginger, chopped
  • 1⁄2 tablespoon peanuts, unsalted
  • 1⁄4 cucumber
  • 1⁄2 tomato
  • Small handful of finely shredded white cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1⁄2lime
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce


1 Put the soya beans, prawns, beansprouts and pickled ginger in a bowl.

2 Separately cut the piece of cucumber in half lengthways and remove the seeds using a spoon then cut the cucumber into thin crescents and add to the other ingredients.

3 Cut the halved tomato into 6 wedges and add these to the bowl, then add the cabbage and coriander.

4 Heat a small frying pan and lightly roast the peanuts – don’t add any oil. They will start to turn a golden brown and at this point turn off the heat and allow them to cool down. Lightly chop them and add to the salad ingredients.

5 Squeeze over the lime juice and add the fish sauce and sweet chilli sauce. Mix everything really well.

6 Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk lightly. Heat a large non-stick frying pan and pour in the eggs. Tip the pan slightly so that the egg covers the entire surface area of the pan in one thin layer – you are making a large, round, flat omelette about the thickness of a pancake.

7 When the eggs are set slide the omelette out onto a chopping board.

8 Take a good handful of the salad and give it a squeeze to remove the excess dressing - place in a ball in the centre of the omelette. Fold the omelette over the salad creating a square tight parcel. Flip the parcel over and cut an X in the top so that you can open up the omelette to see the salad.
