Prawn Fried Rice recipe is something that I make on days I am rushed for time. Fried rice being open to endless variations, I just throw together whatever few basic ingredients I have on hand for a quick, fuss-free, one pot meal.
1/2 kg cleaned and de-veined prawns
1 tsp finely minced garlic
1 tsp finely minced ginger
1/4 cup spring onions, finely chopped
2 finely chopped green chilli (optional)
1 tsp red chilli paste
1 tsp light soya sauce
1/2 tbsp vinegar
1/2 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
salt to taste
1 tbsp sesame oil or peanut oil
1.Heat sesame oil in a large wok and once the oil is piping hot, add the spring onions and stir fry for 2 min on high.
2.Add the rest of the vegetables and toss them on high heat for 5 min.
3. Add salt and pepper powder combine. Add the cooked prawns and toss. Cook on high for a min.
4.Add the cooked cold rice and combine well. Spread it all over the pan and leave on medium high for a min.
5.Combine again, spread out and leave on medium high for another min.
6.Add vinegar and toss all the contents on high heat for a few seconds. Turn off flame.
7.Garnish with chopped spring onion greens and serve and enjoy.
