Fried Rice with Scallops

This is random Wednesday night dinner I made based entirely on the assorted leftovers in my fridge and freezer. It turned out pretty yummy so here it is!

First, microwave for 5 mins:

  • 1 yam, diced

While this is cooking, place in a fry pan:

  • 2 small shallots or 1/3 white onion, diced
  • some ginger root, diced
  • 1 small garlic clove, diced
  • olive oil
  • dash of sesame oil (this has a very strong flavour, so go easy)
  • package of frozen scallops

Fry up until scallops are defrosted and separated. Crack in:

  • 4 eggs
  • some spinach leaves, shredded

And cook until you’ve got a scrambled egg thing going. Don’t mix too vigorously - you want the eggs to turn out pretty chunky. Mix in:

  • cooked yam from above
  • 2 c. cooked rice. I had a mixture of wild rice and sushi rice kicking around.
  • liberal dose of soy sauce. At least 2 tbsp. I used kicap manis, but whatever you have would be fine.
  • Optional: couple saffron threads
  • additional spicing, whatever floats your boat. Oyster sauce would be a classic addition.

Cook it all up until everything is heated through, adding extra olive oil if it’s sticking to the pan. Optional: sprinkle with some kind of nut (e.g. sesame seeds, peanuts, cashews).

Cooking time: 15-20 mins

Serves: 1 hungry person

Helpful tips for success: if you have leftovers, don’t be a lazybum with the dishes. This will stick to the fry pan if you leave it too long.
