Make sure to have all your ingredients ready and on hand -- this goes fast! Thai-style omelets (khai jiao) are nothing more than whisked eggs, seasoning, and cornstarch. Serve with steamed short-grain white rice and plenty of hot chili sauce.
Whisk together eggs, cornstarch, lime juice, fish sauce, and brown sugar until combined. Stir in snap peas, shrimp, and scallions. Fill a small heavy-bottomed pot with 1/2 inch oil. Heat over medium until a little bit of egg mixture sizzles and floats to top when dropped in. Stir egg mixture to ensure even distribution, then hold bowl about a foot above oil and pour in eggs. Cook until just set and golden on bottom, about 1 minute. Flip with a slotted spoon and cook until golden and set on other side, about 30 seconds. Lift out of oil; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Fold in half and serve immediately, over rice and sprinkled with scallions and chili sauce.
