Fried Rice #2 with Fried Dace

Fried Rice with Fried Dace

Dear Whimsical Readers,

F~ This is another version of chinese fried rice, as we all know, fried rice is very simple and can be made with all sorts of ingredients depending on your creativity. This version is from my dear mommy and I love it! So I'd like to share it with everyone, the special ingredient here is Fried Dace with Salted Black Beans, its not the prettiest thing in a can if you're not familiar with Chinese Cuisine. But I assure you, it taste really good. It can also easily go with plain white rice as a dish itself. I've also heard you can cook it with Bak Choy or Bitter Gourd, interesting even for me. Be sure you will see these recipes as soon as I try them! But now, I will show you Fried Rice with Fried Dace, here we go!

Ingredients: Serves 4
4 Cups Overnight Rice
1/2 Can Fried Dace with Salted Black Beans (thinly shredded)
1 Small Chinese Cabbage (thinly sliced)
1 Egg
1 Clove Garlic (finely chopped)
1 Medium Yellow Onion (thinly chopped)
1 Tbsp Ginger (finely sliced)
1 Tbsp Cooking Oil
2 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
Salt & Pepper (to taste)

Fried Dace with Salted Black Bean

1. In a heated Pan/ Wok, add in 1-2 Tbsp Oil from the can of Fried Dace with Salted Black Beans. Fry the Fried Dace, to give it a crunchy texture for the fried rice. Dish out and keep aside.
2. In the same Pan/ Wok, now with Cooking Oil, lightly brown the Garlic, Ginger and Onion. Followed by the Chinese Cabbage and let it cook for 2 minutes.
3. Next, add in the Rice to the mix and continue to cook the mix for another 5 minutes.
4. Then, crack the Egg and mix it well as you cook it. (the Egg binds everything together, so a good mix is crucial) 
5. At this point, add in both Soy Sauce for colour and again mix well.
6. Bringing back the Fried Dace with Salted Black Beans and mixing it well and adding Oil from the can if needed at any point. Taste and adjust to your preference.
7. Dish out and serve hot.

To enhance the fragrance and flavour of the Fried Rice, use the Oil from the can of Fried Dace with Salted Black Beans instead.


Your Truly,
