Sauce: In saucepan, bring stock, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce and ginger to boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain and refrigerate until cool. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.)
Beat together eggs, salt and 1 tsp (5 mL) of the oil. Heat 6-inch (15 cm) nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; brush lightly with some of the remaining oil. Pour in about one-quarter of the egg mixture, tilting pan to spread evenly; cook until top is set, about 30 seconds. Slide out onto cutting board. Repeat with remaining egg mixture to make 4 thin omelettes; stack and cut into fine shreds.
