Pineapple fried rice
Preparation & Cooking time: 20 min
1 to 2 tbsp oil
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
Salt to taste
Non-spicy red chilli for garnishing
#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
#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).
