Asian Inspired Fried Rice

Plated (2)

Everyone Loves Fried Rice! This easy-to-follow quick recipe has an Asian inspired flare and flavor as compared to many other traditional style recipes. We are using our Hair Raisin’ Asian Seasoning Blend for this recipe. This can be served as a healthy main course or side with other Chinese or Asian dishes. You can easily add chicken, pork, shrimp or other protein to this dish. White rice may be substituted over the brown and the versatility of this dish means you can substitute a variety of other vegetables such as snow peas, bell peppers, broccoli, squash or bok choy. Here are some basic cooking tips you will want to make note of here to achieve the perfect Fried Rice.
Cooking Tips for Fried Rice:
• Use a high temp cooking oil. I prefer Grape Seed Oil
• Use a wok, as the cooking technique here is stir-fry. You’re doing this using a very hot pan with hot oil, while cooking in constant motion. The shape of the wok facilitates that action.
• The rice needs to be cooked properly. It should not be a sticky mess and you should be able to separate and fluff the rice easily by using a fork.

This easy at-home version of one of my favorite Asian dishes will satisfy any appetite and goes way beyond the takeout container. This full flavored marinade uses basic on-hand ingredients which is a real time-saver here. One of our newest additions to our Signature Seasoning Collection is the Hair Raisin’ Asian Blend. Although the name may indicate “Hot” the flavor profile is light and savory and a lot of spicy! The term Hair Raisin’ is a trait associated with the behavior of the animal in that like a dog, when moose are agitated, the hairs on their backs stand up straight! We like to have fun with our product names. We want you to have fun cooking…So take a culinary trip around Asia right from your very own kitchen!
