Blacken Eggs

Absolutely superb as appetizers or starters, these Blacken Eggs are available in most Chinese restaurants of Port-Louis and in China Towns around the world. Why not try my extremely easy recipe today and be a “Chef” yourself.

Ingredients

12 fresh eggs
1 cup dark soy sauce
2 tablespoon light soy sauce
2 teaspoon 5-spices
½ teaspoon crushed black pepper
6 tablespoon brown sugar

Instructions

Place eggs in single layer in saucepan. Cover with cold water. Cover pot with lid and bring to a boil 15 minutes at medium heat. Drain and cool under cold water, peel.

In a sauce pan, roast spices for few seconds, add sauces and sugar, mix and bring to boil.

Add eggs, reduce heat and admire your work, keep turning eggs until coated and colored to dark brown.

Remove from the sauce, reserve the sauce.

To serve, cut eggs length wise in 4, drizzle some of this beautiful caramel sauce over the eggs, serve hot or warm.

Remaining sauce may be kept in the fridge for 48 hours and use as marinade.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
