Prawn Stir Fried Rice

Prawn Stir Fried Rice


After my Prawn Curry and Prawn Toast recipe this stir fried rice is not only very much in demand but rather easy to make. I am always eager to stir up a batch of Prawn Fried Rice whenever I  am short of time.

I like recipes that don't require long trips to the supermarket. Mostly I like cooking my meals with readily available ingredients. I always keep prawns in my freezer because I use them in a lot of recipes.

In this recipe I am using some seasonal vegetables along with prawns. I like to use light soy sauce but you can use dark soy sauce if you like.  I love adding a dash of chili sauce for a nice kick.

Prawn fried rice is a delicious one pot meal it contains each and every entity of  what a complete meal should be. I like to whip up one pot meals for one simple reason.... minimal effort, lesser clean up.

This prawn fried rice is also ideal for freezing, you can prepare a double doze and freeze half for using later on.
