Do you like salted fish? Fried or steamed? I love them in fried rice. Simply yummy.
And a vegetarian shop in my hometown, Kampar makes this fried rice with lots of bean sprouts, just like the way one would fry salted fish with.
Try this if you are a "bean sprouts with salted fish" lover, but even if you are not, do try this if you a re a fried rice lover.
2 rice bowls(packed) of cooled, cooked rice
40gm salted fish flesh, finely chopped (I used kurau/tanau/threadfin)
200gm beansprouts, about 2 cups
2 large eggs, cracked into a bowl
1 clove garlic
Pepper for seasoning
2 sprigs of spring onion, finely sliced
4 tbsp oil
Heat wok until very hot, put in oil. Put in salted fish and stir for 2 seconds and put in chopped garlic. Fry until both are golden and fragrant. Push aside and put eggs into wok and scramble immediately. When eggs are cooked, return salted fish from the sides to the middle and put in rice.
Toss until rice is hot and fragrant. Season with pepper. Put in bean sprouts, toss for another 15 seconds, put in spring onion and toss for another 5 seconds.
Dish up and serve.
*To add or not to add salt is up to personal preference and depends on the saltiness of the fish.
