Enoki Mushrooms

Enoki mushrooms, Enokitake in Japanese, also called golden needle mushrooms, are very flavourful and can be used in a number of dishes. They keep fresh for about a week in the fridge, you can also buy them canned; fresh is definitely better. I've had them with hotpot, in stir-fries; they are mostly used in soups, and also in salads. I recently had them, because of an idea I saw in a Chinese Supermarket, in a omelette.

1 green onion, sliced thinly
1 tsp fish sauce
salt and pepper, to taste

Mix all ingredients together, then cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes on one side, until golden brown, flipping over for 1-2 minutes. Serve warm, with rice.
