WASABI FRIED RICE
I had my first taste of a dish similar to this at a food booth at a craft fair. The recipe was simple, onion, bacon, soy sauce, rice and wasabi. That version was a sinus clearing experience, but oh so good. Feel free to add as much or as little as you like.
2-3 TB wasabi (Japanese horseradish) paste, as needed 1 tsp. vegetable oil 1 large egg+1 large egg white, beaten 1 TB sesame seed oil ½ lb. ground pork, chicken or turkey 2 cloves garlic, chopped 1 TB fresh ginger, grated 1 TB oyster sauce ¼ c. green onion, chopped 2 serrano chilies, seeded, thinly sliced 3-4 c. cooked rice, air dried or refrigerated pinch freshly ground black pepper Garnish: ¼ c. chopped fresh cilantro, 2 TB pickled ginger
In a wok over medium heat, scramble eggs in vegetable oil. Remove from wok; reserve. Into wok over medium high heat; stir fry meat, garlic and ginger in sesame oil until cooked through. Add remaining ingredients; adding wasabi paste as desired. Garnish with cilantro and ginger. Variation: Substitute scrambled soft tofu for eggs.
