Simple fried rice for dinner when the lazy mode is on :p I have some pan seared salmon left after lunch,I decided to fry rice for dinner. WB cooked extra rice for fried rice later in the night when we are hungry. There is no time fixed for dinner when it comes to weekend. Dinner can be any time after 8pm :p reason being we had tea break at 3.30pm . Fried rice is the most versatile rice dish . You can add in anything you want and it will taste good. I have tried frying rice with homemade kimchi and even tried frying rice with salted fish and dried shriHmps. But for this time, I fried rice with salmon flakes ( from the leftover pan seared salmon ) and lots of crispy ginger shreds. This is what makes the rice so delicious...it is not just the salmon flakes but the golden shreds of fried ginger! And I added chinese cabbage to make it a well balanced meal. Veggies and fish would be a healthy meal for dinner. Easy to whip up and most important it taste good too !
