Thai recipes are always full of flavor. The prawn and pineapple fried rice here is no exclusion. With nutritious additives, this recipe also serves as a potluck star.
Sunflower oil – 2 tsp
A bunch spring onions, greens and whites separated, both sliced
1 green pepper, deseeded and chopped into small chunks
140g pineapple, chopped into bite-sized chunks
3 tbsp Thai green curry paste
4 tsp light soy sauce, plus extra to serve
300g cooked basmati rice (brown, white or a mix – about 140g uncooked rice)
2 large eggs, beaten
140g frozen peas
225g can bamboo shoots, drained
250g frozen prawns, cooked or raw
2-3 limes, 1 juiced, the rest cut into wedges to serve
Handful coriander leaves (optional)
Heat the oil in a wok or non-stick frying pan. Fry spring onion whites for 2 mins until soft. Stir in the pepper for 1 min, followed by the pineapple for 1 min more. Then stir in the green curry paste and soy sauce.
Add rice and continue stir-frying until piping hot. Then push the rice to one side of the pan and scramble the eggs on the other side. Stir the peas, bamboo shoots and prawns into the rice and eggs. Heat through for 2 mins until the prawns are hot and the peas tender. Finally, stir in the spring onion greens, lime juice and coriander. Enjoy with lime wedges on top.
