I went to my friend's house in Colts Neck NJ again yesterday for yet another BBQ. I would have declined the invitation but I just didn't know how to say no. Afterall, I live in Los Angeles and my friend claimed if I didn't take this rare business trip of mine to visit her more, there wouldn't be opportunity like this once I leave the Garden State to return to the Golden State. Oh well, I agreed, so I went even though I found her McMansion really boring and her BBQ and cooking just "bland". When I got there, I suggested my friend to order some Chinese Fried Rice as a side dish to her BBQ steak (which tasted really gross, and they were from the big pack bought from Costco). I was however unable to find a decent Chinese restaurant that is within delivery distance. Just why does my friend or anyone love to live in the middle of nowhere like this? So I used the smoked salmon which she stocked up in her fridge, to make Fried Rice myself. I guess living in a place like Colts Neck just means "more cooking at home", which means more "homework",.....
Makes 2 Servings
- 2 beaten eggs
- 2 cups of cooked Jasmine rice (I don't like brown rice but you can do brown rice)
- 4 - 5 slices of Atlantic smoked salmon (I often used Scottish smoked Salmon)
- 1 teaspoon of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of chopped green onions
- 2 tablespoons of Olive oil
- Heat wok with 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium high heat, stir fry the smoked salmon pieces until you can crumble them with the spatula, 1-2 minutes.
- Push the crumbled salmon to one side of the wok and pour in the eggs, stir until the eggs are cooked and crumbled, 1-2 minutes.
- Put aside the salmon and egg mixture on a plate, pour in the wok 1 tablespoon of Olive oil, and continue to heat on medium high heat for 1 min.
- Add chopped green onions and stir fry for 30 seconds.
- Add cooked rice and stir fry for 1-2 minutes.
- Put back the salmon and egg crumbles to 3 above, drizzle soy sauce all over and stir for 30 seconds. Transfer to rice bowls and serve.
