Prawn Fried Rice

My husband worked from home today. Between appointments and teleconferences, we enjoyed a lunch of Prawn Fried Rice. Having a quiet mid-week lunch together is a rare thing when you have demanding jobs and two young boys, but when you do you know you're livin' the good life!

Prawn Fried Rice
from Donna Hay's Fresh, Fast, Simple
Serves 2 (perfect!)

2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons grated ginger
1 long red chilli, finely sliced
4 green onions, finely sliced
10 large green (raw) prawns, peeled and cleaned (I chopped mine into bite-size pieces - easier for chopsticks)
2 cups cooked jasmine rice
a handful of coriander leaves, roughly chopped
soy and chilli sauces, to serve

Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add half of the sesame oil and half of the egg and swirl to coat the pan. Cook for 1 minute or until the egg has set. Remove from pan, set aside and repeat with remaining egg and oil.

Heat the frying pan over high heat. Add the vegetable oil, ginger, chilli and onion and cook for 1 minute. Add the prawns and cook for 3 minutes. Add the rice and cook for 2-3 minutes or until warmed through.

Place the omelettes on serving plates and spoon over the rice mixture. Strew with coriander leaves. Serve the soy and chilli sauces on the side.
