Kimchi Fried Rice

June 13

The key ingredient in this dish is the kimchi, a fermented asian cabbage with gochujang (a spicy chilli paste) which gives a spicy and tangy twist to the fried rice. It’s a real treat garnished with toasted sesame seeds and strips of nori seaweed. Like many rice dishes this is one is only improved with the addition of a fried egg, plopped on top.

Method
  1. Heat a large pan over a high heat and add the oil. Add the onions to the pan and saute until the go slightly golden, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add in the kimchi and a glug of the liquid it comes in and stir fry for 1-2 minutes or until it’s hot all the way through.
  3. Add the rice to the pan and gently break up while also tossing through the contents of the pan. Season with dark soy sauce and sesame oil and stir through until completely incorporated.
  4. Reduce the heat and in another pan fry the eggs in a little more oil until the whites are no longer translucent and the yolk is still slightly runny.
  5. Serve the kimchi rice in deep bowl topped with a fried egg, toasted sesame seeds and some strips of nori seaweed.
