Preserved Radish Shrimp Omelette

It's been awhile since I have any preserved radish..The type of preserved radish I like is the one cut in strip and stir-fry with chili red pepper and garlic.I remember when I was young we used to eat alot of preserved radish with porridge.We called "chai por tan" in Chinese. Well,I guess it's a comfort food for us or for another word it's a food for poor people..Last week when I was cleaning my pantry l saw a pack of chopped preserved radish still sitting in the air tight container..I think I bought that pack of preserved radish last year..I don't really worry because I know preserved vegetable have long shelf life..I like the crunchiness and saltiness of this aromatic radish when fry with shrimp and omelette..A simple and wonderful comfort food for dinner!!

1 pack preserved chopped radish or strip,about 7 oz ,soak in water for 1 hour or more
2 cloves garlic,peeled and minced
5-6 shrimp,shelled and deviened,cut small
1 red pepper,sliced

3:Clean the pan/skillet with towel paper, before add in 1 tbsp oil,swirl the oil all over the pan.Pour the eggs mixture with radish into the pan,pan-fry both side until lightly crisp brown..
