Asian fried rice


I was planning to name it Taiwanese sausage , salted fish and egg  fried rice but that name's a mouthful so I settled for something catchy ( ? ) to sum up those 3 ingredients .....

I usually have leftover rice in the fridge and making something hearty yet easy to make during these never-ending hot summer days is a no-brainer . This one-pot meal is my to-go dish whenever I'm too lazy ( which is most of the time ) and combining everything is much more delicious and fast than actually cooking each ingredients separately .

This dried salted fish is an acquired taste . Here in Hongkong , they usually cooked it together with spareribs and if you've eaten claypot or steamed rice here , this is one of their topping combination . Back home , we love eating dried salted fish and we almost always fried it , so imagine my surprised when I saw for the first time here , the way they cooked dried salted fish !

Taiwanese sausage on the other hand ,  tastes more like a soft Chinese sausage and look like our own local sausage , called longanisa , back home .

I need to submit something to the Little Thumbs-up event so adding egg , which is the feature ingredient this month , to my fried rice is a must lol 



Serves 4 as part of the multi-course meal

4 cups day-old rice
2 Taiwanese sausage , steamed and diced
30 grams dried salted fish , fried , de-boned and flaked
2 eggs , beaten
1/2 cup steamed fresh corn kernels
3 tablespoon chopped spring onions plus more for garnish
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon kecap manis / sweet soy sauce
1 teaspoon light soy sauce

* Heat wok over medium-high heat and add about 1/2 teaspoon of oil , add diced sausages when the oil is hot , cook for about 2 minutes , transfer to a plate . In the same pan , add oil if necessary , fry the beaten eggs , stirring until set , transfer to the plate together with sausages . Add about 1 teaspoon of oil , fry garlic and ginger until lightly-browned , add the rice , cook for 2 minutes , stirring from time to time . Add the sausages , eggs , salted fish , corn kernels and spring onions , cook for another 2 minutes , stirring well to combine all ingredients . Add in the sweet soy and light soy sauce , stir until incorporated , adjust taste and give another thorough stir . Dish up and serve hot .

  15. Hi Anne,

    What delicious sounding fried rice! I actually attempted to make fried rice for Marion last night well, not exactly, I heated up some of Trader Joe's fried rice. Although it was good, I'm sure your Asian Fried Rice was definitely yummy! I love the notion of salted fish. I bet it makes the dish!

    Thanks for sharing, Anne...
