Fried Rice & Fishy Luncheon

What is a Chinese take out without Fried Rice? I'm sure everyone will agree with me that a dish of fried rice is a must-have at most Chinese take-outs. I am, thus, submitting my fried rice for Mochachocolata Rita's Chinese Take-Out Party.

While browsing in the supermarket one day, I discovered this new product - Ayam Brand Fish Luncheon. How interesting. So, since I was picking up some ingredients for dinner last evening, I decided to try it out. Fish is healthier than meats anyway, so no harm in that. It also ensures that little princess consumes her fish. What could be better than that. ;) I love a camouflage any day. The verdict is that there is no fishy taste, or maybe since it is cooked with so many other ingredients, I hardly even tasted it on its own.

Recipe for fried rice -

Rice - enough for 3 to 4 people (I used 1-1/2cup uncooked rice)

Half an onion, chopped finely
2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
2 cups finely shredded cabbage (one of the items I needed to rid my fridge of)
1/2 cup spring onion, sliced thinly
1/3 cup sweet corn kernels
5 sticks of crabsticks, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup of corned beef (leftovers from another time)
1/4 cup of fish luncheon, sliced thinly
1 egg
10 - 12 prawns (also needed to clear these off)
light soy sauce, sesame oil, white pepper for seasoning

Method -

1. Saute onions till transparent, add garlic & fry till fragrant. Stir in prawns and remove. Set aside.

2. Fry cabbage next and when a little soft, add in corn, fish luncheon, corned beef & fry till well-mixed.

3. Add in the egg and rice over it. Season to taste. Add in prawns in the end together with spring onions and mix well. Ready to be served.

Wooo...AYAM brand has fish luncheon now. That's new to me. You made professional fried rice by having the cabbage shreds on top of your fried rice. Now I feel hungry ...

singairishgirl said...

tigerfish - Oh yes, little one thinks it's meat and she eats them so I'm happy. :) Oh really, I put the cabbage shreds so it didn't look too boring. Hehe. Thanks.
