Recipe: Tom Yum Fried Rice with King Prawns

After cooking the tom yum pasta with king prawns dish, I still had some WORLDFOODS Thai tom yum paste left, so I used it to cook tom yum fried rice for our lunch. Fried rice is such a versatile dish, you can add any ingredients that you have in the fridge and with proper seasoning, it will taste good.

A quick search in the fridge and I decided to use some minced chicken breast, king prawns, and sliced French beans for my tom yum fried rice. I also added some pineapple chunks, a sweet element to complement the spicy and sour tom yum paste.

What a delicious plate of fried rice! So fragrant with a multitude of flavours - sweet, sour, spicy and salty. Top your fried rice with a fried egg each for extra oomph :)

Ingredients for the tom yum fried rice

2. Add rice and French beans, and stir well to coat with the sauce. Cook for about 2 minutes,  until the rice is heated through.

3. Add prawns and cook for another 2 minutes, until the prawns are cooked. Finally, add the pineapple chunks and season with kecap manis and fish sauce.

4. To fry the eggs, place 1 1/2 tbsp of oil into a small frying pan over medium low heat and break an egg. Cook until the egg white has set, then using the spatula, scoop hot oil onto the egg yolk for about 10 seconds. Repeat with other egg.

5. Plate the rice, and top with a fried egg each. Serve immediately.

Note: You can substitute French beans with long beans or peas.
