Spicy Seafood Fried Rice


By now I am sure you know what the intro will be for my fried rice recipes. What else other than the standard taglines - "Leftover Cooked Rice, Time Factor, Easy Preasy and Nothing Very Complicated". And let me tell you that its the same story for this spicy version - rice fried with prawns and squid, belacan and chilli paste.

Ingredients
3cups cooked white rice
10 prawns - remove shells, de-vein and chopped into 4 to 5 pieces
1 medium size squid - sliced thinly
1 tbsp dried chilli paste
5 shallots - sliced thinly
5 garlic - chopped
1 1/2 cup lettuce leaves - shredded (or other leafy green veggie)
1 tsp roasted belacan/shrimp powder (optional)
2 stalks spring onions -sliced thinly
4 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

Method:
When oil is heated, saute shallots and garlic.
Add chillies and belacan powder.
Stir and cook till aromatic and oil splits.
Add prawns and squid and continue to stir for another 2 minutes.
Put in rice and season with salt.
Stir all in over high heat.
Add add lettuce leaves and spring onions.
Give a good stir before removing from heat.

  2. The ground chilies and the shrimp powder, no doubt adds a special flavor to this dish. I have never seen shrimp powder, but now it does have my interest.
    Thanks for sharing this seafood rice dish, most of what I have is cajun so it is nice to have an alternate cuisine when it comes to seafood and rice. Great post.
