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
