Homemade Prawn Fried Rice
This dinner is a great homemade and healthy alternative to a Chinese takeaway. Please don’t feel like it is only prawns that can be used… as I say all recipes can be altered to suit your own taste. You can use chicken, turkey, beef, pork or whatever else tickles your fancy.
504 per portion
120g of brown or wholegrain rice
Fresh large prawns, about 6/8 each- peeled and deveined
1 clove of garlic
1 large shallot
1 medium egg
1 slice of cooked ham (optional)
A small head of broccoli
A handful of peas
2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce
Ø Cook the rice according to the packets instructions. Cut the broccoli into small flowerets, finely chop the shallot and garlic and shred the ham if using it.
Ø When the rice is cooked, allow it to steam dry in a sieve. On a hot/wok pan add a little olive oil, add in the garlic and shallot and fry off for a minute without colouring it. Then add in the prepared prawns. Fry these off for 2 minutes until coloured all over then pick them out with tongs and set aside.
Ø Add a little more oil to the pan and crack in the egg, move around and break it up with a spatula until cooked then add in the broccoli and peas. Fry all this off for 3-4 minutes before adding in the cooked rice.
Ø Continue stirring the contents of pan/wok for a minute then add in the soy sauce, ham and prawns, give this all a good mix around for another minute then serve up into warm dishes.
