  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat until shimmering hot. Add shrimp and cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Then, flip shrimp and cook for 1-2 more minutes.
  2. Add onions and green beans, and cook until they’ve softened, stirring often, about 2 minutes.
  3. Turn heat down to medium, add the Omsom starter, and stir to evenly coat everything in the skillet. 
  4. Add red peppers (optional) and roughly hand tear the basil into the skillet. Turn off the heat and stir to wilt the basil. 
  5. Salt to taste and top with fried egg (optional).
  6. You’re done! Serve with some of our suggested favorites. Enjoy!
