  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 serrano pepper minced
  • 1 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoons red onion minced
  • 1/2 cup carrot minced
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper minced
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime zest
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 eggs lightly whisked
  • 1 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoons fresh ginger grated (about 1 inch nub)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoons black pepper freshly ground

  1. In a small bowl, combine serrano pepper through sugar. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes.
  2. In another small bowl, whisk together dark soy sauce through black pepper, set aside.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Add vegetable mixture to hot oil, stirring for 2-3 minutes, or until it starts to soften. Add eggs, tossing like you wold with scrambled eggs. When eggs are fully cooked, add ham, stirring for another minute.
