Prawn Fried Rice

Its time for another post … Now that my wee lil girl is into a routine, I am starting to experiment with food again and need to get around to posting atleast once during the week! I am hoping to get better here on, so bear with me for a little while longer. I made this dish over the weekend. With the baby taking a real nice 2hr morning nap, I got to the kitchen to get cooking. Perfect for any fried rice lovers out there!

Summary

    Ingredients

    500 gm Prawn : bags
    1.5 cups Frozen Veggies :  –
    Onion : Medium size minced fine
    2 Spring Onion : sliced (have some to garnish)
    4 cloves Garlic : crushed
    1/2 Ginger : crushed
    3 (for some heat!) Dried red chilli :
    1 tbsp Soy Sauce :
    1 cup Sweet Chilli sauce :
    1 tbsp Sesame Oil :
    3 cups Rice : washed and set aside
    cups water
    1 Juice of lemon
    2, Eggs : lightly beaten seasoned with salt and pepper
    Salt & Pepper

    Steps

    1. First up devein the prawn – that yucky black line running through it needs to go! Next crush the garlic,ginger and red chillis in your pestle and mortar
    2. To some heated oil, saute the onion and spring onion (saving some for garnish later). When they are nice and translucent, add the prawns. Season it with some salt and pepper. As the prawns turn pink, add the crushed garlic-ginger-chilli mixture. The aroma that comes through is magical!
    3. I added the frozen veggies next. Then the rice, 6 cups of water and the soy and sweet chilli sauce
    4. Give everything a good mix, season with salt and pepper, cover and cook on low heat. The rice will soon be cooked through. I used a non-stick pan, this way the rice on the bottom did not get stuck to the pan and burn!
    5. As the rice is cooking, pour the beaten eggs in a frying pan and cook for a couple of mins. Once the omellete is cooked, slice thinly. Add this to the rice when its cooked
    6. Garnish with the left over spring onions and serve hot!
