Fried Shrimp and Peas

150g raw shrimp, unshelled
1 medium size onion
150g of beef
½ cup of peas
Spring onions
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of salt
Pepper (shred)
Groundnut oil
Seasoning (1 knorr chicken cube, curry and thyme)
2 teaspoons of water
1 teaspoon cornstarch


Remove the shell and rinse the shrimp properly, cut into small pieces, season with half a cube of knorr chicken, salt, onion, curry and thyme and set aside for 20 minutes. Wash the beef, season and cook until it becomes soft and dice it. Dice the onion as well as the spring onion. Pour some oil into the frying pan, when it becomes hot stir fry the diced beef and peas for a while then, pour into a plate and set it aside. Shred the pepper, stir fry the pepper, shrimp and the onion as well and set aside. Break the eggs into a plate add some salt and beat with a fork and set aside. Heat the frying pan and add very little groundnut oil, when it becomes hot pour about half of the egg and cook for a while, when it is thoroughly cooked, turn it over so that both sides are cooked. Cook the other half of the egg the same way too and cut the egg into thin strips and set aside. Pour all the fried ingredients ( pepper, shrimp, onion, beef, peas, cornstarch, spring onions) together with the exception of the fried egg and mixed them together properly, then pour into a plate and garnish it with the fried egg.
