Main Dish







Special Fried Rice


  • 2 teaspoons canola oil, or more as needed
  • 2 eggs
  • 0.5 teaspoon water
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil, divided
  • 0.5 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 0.25 cup frozen peas and carrots, thawed and patted dry with paper towel
  • 2 cups cold cooked jasmine rice
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 0.5 teaspoon white sugar
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 0.5 teaspoon ground white pepper, or to taste
  • 0.5 teaspoon monosodium glutamate (MSG)
  • 0.25 cup chopped green onion, or to taste, divided
  • 0.25 cup chopped fresh cilantro, or to taste
  • 1 cucumber



Heat 2 teaspoons canola oil in a large wok or skillet over high heat until smoking.


Beat eggs and water together in a bowl until smooth. Pour beaten egg mixture into the skillet, let it cook in the oil briefly to begin to firm, and then scramble lightly with a wooden spoon until the eggs are cooked and shiny, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove cooked eggs to a plate.


Pour 1 teaspoon sesame oil into the hot pan. Add enough canola oil to cover the cooking surface of the pan and heat to smoking. Sauté onion and garlic in oil until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes; add peas and carrots and cook until hot, 1 to 2 minutes more. Return cooked eggs to the pan.


Gradually add rice to the skillet, tossing chunks to break into individual grains and mixing with vegetables; cook and stir until the rice starts to turn a light brown color and is completely hot, 2 to 3 minutes.


Stir Sriracha sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar, salt, white pepper, and monosodium glutamate into the rice mixture; continue to cook and stir until the grains of rice are no longer sticking together, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove pan from heat. Sprinkle green onion and cilantro over rice; toss to mix.


Peel outside skin of cucumber with vegetable shredder to create a ragged design on the outside. Slice cucumber diagonally and arrange in a circle around a serving platter. Serve rice in the middle of the platter; top with additional green onion and white pepper.
