Hello, I had a question regarding the salted egg, lots of recipes call for the salted egg yolk only …. what can I do with all the leftover salted egg white portion?

You can use it for other recipes that calls for salted egg whites, such as in fried rice, fried noodles, steamed dish etc. You can keep the egg whites covered in the fridge for a few days until you use it. You can even freeze it if there is a lot. Sometimes it’s used as a substitute for salt in a dish. Check out the many recipes that uses salted egg whites.
