Gordon Ramsay whips up pāua scrambled eggs on Stewart Island

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has created an authentically Kiwi twist on scrambled eggs using an unexpected ingredient - pāua . 

The celebrity chef was on our shores earlier this year filming his new National Geographic series Gordon Ramsay Uncharted. 

Ramsay, who often creates unusual eggs for his Youtube channel 'Scrambled', entitled this one 'Abalone Scrambled Eggs in New Zealand'. 

"Last night on #Uncharted on @NatGeoChannel I went diving for pāua in #NewZealand and now I'm turning them into the most amazing Scrambled Eggs !" he captioned the video. 

In the clip, Ramsay pounds out the pāua before slicing it thinly and sauteeing it on an outdoor stove. 

Into the eggs goes a whopping amount of butter and some seaweed to season. 

"I'm not going to use any salt, I'm going to use the most amazing seaweed," Ramsay explains. "That seaweed is going to add a little lift in there."

Ramsay adds the paua to the eggs, and dubbs it "delicious". 

With the incredible Stewart Island views behind, Ramsay reveals; "I've made a lot of scrambled eggs in my time, but this has to be the most glamourous… I can recommend a paua scrambled egg. Trust me." 

You can catch Gordon Ramsay Uncharted on National Geographic from Monday August 5, at 8:30pm. 

The NZ-based episode airs the following week, on Monday August 12.
