Pineapple fried rice

Preparation & Cooking time: 20 min


Ingredients:

1 to 2 tbsp oil

2 eggs

1½ cups chopped fresh pineapple

½ cup chopped spring onions

2 cups cooked and chilled rice for garnishing (I prefer jasmine rice)

2 tbsp oyster sauce

150g bacon

Salt to taste

Non-spicy red chilli for garnishing


Method:

#1 Heat a large wok or pan, add a bit of oil to fry the bacon for about 1 to 2 minutes, then

put the bacon aside.

#2 Add the eggs and frequently stir until they are scrambled and light, about 10 seconds.

#3 Add rice to the pan, and 1 tbsp oil as needed. Combine with other ingredients, and stir

occasionally.

#4 Combine with oyster sauce and add salt to taste. If you don't use bacon, add a bit more

salt to adjust the taste. Now you can add the chopped pineapple to fry for another 30

seconds to one minute.



TIPS AND HINTS

Using a non-stick pan is your best friend.


After the rice is chilled, slightly separated the rice before stirring them with the other ingredients.


To create a nice colour and a fresh taste with fried rice, add these three additional colourful ingredients: Red (ham, salami, carrots); Green (peas); Yellow (pineapple).
