      I halved this (cooking for one ya know)useing the raw egg version. Salting the wok like that was new to me but it makes sense. I also used soy paste rather than sauce to lower the overall salt content. NO MSG.

      Well, we loved it. Used the raw egg method and used frozen peas.I did not use MSG. I also used kikkoman low sodium soy sauce I did cook my fried rice in a carbon steel wok, nothing beats the way a carbon steel wok cooks. Thanks!! simple but great dish.

      I use this recipe everytime I make chinese food and it works great! I use the raw egg and frozen peas and have even used frozen snow peas. I found this out the hard way, make sure the cooked rice is COMPLETELY cooled off before frying, ( not being completely cooled resulted in sticky rice) the best way i found to cool it off fast is to spread it on a big cookie sheet or other shallow pan so that it is a thin layer. If I have room I stick it in the fridge and let it chill.
