  • 10g dried shrimp

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Heat 1/2 tbsp sesame oil in a pan or wok, add egg and gently scramble until lightly cooked. Remove from wok, use kitchen paper to clean any egg remaining, then add 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil.
  2. Quickly stir-fry pickled mustard leaf over medium heat(about 30 seconds). Add baby sardines, dried shrimp, sliced red pepper, chopped chillies and soy sauce. Mix well, but take care not to burn.
  3. Now add rice (if cold, warm in microwave), and mix while cooking. Once ingredients are well mixed, add in scrambled eggs and scallions. Mix well. Add pepper to taste and more soy sauce, if you like.
