Prawn Fried Rice, a savory and satisfying seafood sensation that’s quick and easy to make at home.”
1. Preparing the Rice:
Start by cooking the rice according to the package instructions. Once cooked, spread it out on a tray to cool completely. Cold rice works best for fried rice as it doesn’t stick together.
2. Sautéing the Prawns:
Heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the prawns and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until they turn pink and opaque. Remove the prawns from the wok and set them aside.
3. Scramble the Eggs:
In the same wok, add a bit more oil if needed. Pour in the beaten eggs and scramble them until they are just set. Remove the scrambled eggs from the wok and set them aside.
4. Stir-fry the Aromatics:
Add the remaining cooking oil to the wok and heat it over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic and chopped onions. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until the onions turn translucent and aromatic.
5. Add Mixed Vegetables:
Toss in the mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, corn) and stir-fry for another 3-4 minutes until they are tender.
6. Incorporate the Rice:
Now, add the cold, cooked rice to the wok. Use a spatula or wok ladle to break up any clumps and ensure the rice is well mixed with the vegetables.
7. Season with Sauces:
Drizzle the soy sauce and fish sauce (if using) evenly over the rice. Mix well to ensure the rice is evenly coated with the sauces. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
8. Return Prawns and Eggs:
Return the cooked prawns and scrambled eggs to the wok. Stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes to heat them through and combine all the ingredients.
9. Garnish and Serve:
Once everything is well heated and mixed, remove the wok from the heat. Garnish the Prawn Fried Rice with chopped green onions.
