Salted Chili Chinese Chive Frittata


In some circles, eggs have a terrible rap. They’re relegated to baked items and breakfast foods, and their use is often portrayed as a sad, cost-saving alternative. However, the humble egg may be a star in its own right at dinner or lunch! When it comes to eggs, this Salted Chili & Chinese Chive Frittata certainly shines.

This Salted Chili & Chinese Chive Frittata is one of my all-time favorites, despite how simple and strange a combination may sound. It’s hard to resist when accompanied by a large bowl of rice.


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1½ cups of chopped Chinese chives
  • ¼ cup of hunan chili peppers
  • 5 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon of Shaoxing wine
  • ⅛ teaspoon of sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground white pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon of sesame oil


  1. Gather your ingredients and mix the eggs with sugar, Shaoxing wine, white pepper, and sesame oil in a bowl. Use 5 tablespoons of oil in a medium-high-heat skillet to cook the vegetables.
  2. Remove from heat, and whisk in the chives. Distribute the hunan chilies evenly over the top.
  3. Pour the eggs over the mixture in a uniform fashion. In order to avoid breaking up the eggs too much when scrambling, gently mix the eggs until they are just cooked.
  4. To make a frittata, turn down the heat to medium and cook the egg until it is almost completely set. When you are ready to flip the frittata, carefully slide it onto a plate, lay the pan over the plate, and rapidly flip everything so that the frittata flips out into the pan..
  5. Cook the dish until the egg is no longer runny, and then serve it up to your guests!
