Homemade King Prawn Fried Rice

Earlier today, I was craving some Chinese food, reminiscing about all the nice restaurants I was hoping to visit this year and all the things we had planned. Anyway, we’re hopeful for better days to come.

I decided to make some homemade king prawn fried rice. I love me some Chinese food and with the current crisis, I don’t intend to visit any nice restaurants anytime soon. So, I suggest we all experiment and explore what we have at home and to be honest you can learn to cook anything these days thanks to the internet.

If you’re looking for a quick delicious meal, I highly recommend trying this at home. You cannot go wrong and I’ve realised no matter how you cook it, it will turn out just fine so don’t bother about perfection. King prawn fried rice is super easy to cook and also very fast.

Honestly, I never intended to share this meal today as I literally rushed to make it, only used what I had available at home and wasn’t sure about posting it. However, there’s love in sharing guys, so do give it a try and let me know how it turns out. Also, give this post a thumbs up and comment below if it’s your cup of tea 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil ( I use olive oil to cook all my meals)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 10 or more king prawns
  • Long grain rice, cooked and cooled
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp soya sauce
  • White pepper to taste ( I used chopped chilli peppers)
  • Sliced Spring onions
  • Chopped onions and garlic if you want but necessary (I didn’t use any for this meal)

Instructions

  1. Firstly, boil rice slightly to cook, then leave it to cool.
  2. Wash and clean king prawns.
  3. Have peas and carrot ready (defrost or cook from frozen if you prefer)
  4. Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan, on high heat until hot.
  5. Then pour beaten egg into wok, stirring constantly.
  6. When egg is almost cooked into a scramble for about 30 seconds add peas and king prawns onions (some chopped onions, garlic if you want) and stir for a minute.
  7. Next add in the boiled rice into the wok and keep stirring for couple of minutes.
  8. Finally, add pepper, salt and soya sauce to taste and fry for few more minutes.
  9. Garnish spring onion on top.
  10. Voila, your king prawn fried rice is ready!
  11. Tips: If prawns are grey in colour they are raw, if they are pink they have been pre-cooked/cooked, don’t over cook your prawns. You can also stir fry egg, prawns and rice separately and add everything together at the end. But for me, this is the easiest and quickest way and took me about 10minutes.
