Spam Fried Rice

Spam Fried Rice

3 cups cooked and chilled jasmine rice
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp. chopped scallions
1 whole egg
1/3 lbs. Spam, cubed
1 Tbsp. neutral oil (such as canola or sunflower oil)
1/2 tsp. sesame seed oil
5 drops fish sauce
2 Tbsp. soy sauce

In a hot pan, place neutral oil and sesame oil. Once hot, add rice and sauté
(a wok can be used if you have one). Add in the meat, heat and sear.

When completed, push to the side of the pan and add the egg. Break it up and scramble in the pan. You want it to be scrambled in the pan so there is a
contrast of yellow and white. Fold all the ingredients together. Add the
herbs and fold, now add the fish sauce and soy sauce. Season with salt and
pepper to taste.

I really like this recipe with a few changes:

substitute 12 oz firm tofu, drained and cubed instead of the Spam

leave out the fish oil

I love Spam in any form.
