  1. Hi Larry! Just wanted to let you know I tried your shrimp egg foo young recipe and it was DELICIOUS! never had it in a restaurant.....

    I' am a great fan of What are we eating. Love your dry humor!

    Thank you for keepink it real!

    1. Thank you very much Vonlipi I appreciate it!!

  2. I want to make this for my family, but my father is allergic to shellfish. Would the oyster sauce harm him and if so, can you think of a good replacement?

    1. You can look for vegetarian or mushroom flavored 'oyster sauce' which will be safe. Or you can simply omit the oyster sauce or add a little hoisin sauce which is somewhat similar in flavor but a little sweeter than oyster sauce.
