Recently my favorite sardines brand AYAM brand came out with a series of some new sardines flavors which I attempted to cook a fried rice with instead of just eating the sardines on its own and I thought it taste really good ! So here I am penning down the recipe for records. The particular sardine flavor which I used was the Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Chili which I even utilize the olive oil in the pack to stir fry the rice and it made the rice very fragrant indeed.
I have never seen anyone who disliked a fried rice thus far even though it’s something that’s relatively easy to whip up. Because it can also help to use up any leftover rice, fried rice is generally a very versatile dish on the menu which can be enjoyed by everyone, kids or adults alike. And the only way to improvise or enjoy a fried rice dish further, is to come up with different varieties or flavors of it. Hence my particular Olive Oil Sardines Egg Fried Rice is one new variation which I thought is pretty delicious.
Short grain rice or Japanese rice can enhance the taste and texture of the fried rice and I’ve also added red bell peppers, corns and scallions to the rice to increase the vegetable intake so that it makes an awesome one plate dish. It also gave the rice some extra colors so that it looks even more appetizing. And I have cooked extra of this rice too to go in a special lunch box which I will shared in a later post.
So for now, let’s enjoy this Olive Oil Sardines Egg Fried Rice first with the recipe as below !
