This dish is the essence of Chinese-Portuguese fusion. Fried rice, a distinctly Chinese dish, is fused with Mediterranean black olives and chorizo.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, Asian fish sauce, and lime juice and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or heavy frying pan over high heat. Add the garlic and onion and sauté for 3 minutes, or until the onion starts to turn translucent. Pour in the eggs and scramble until they are just set, and then immediately toss in the rice and stir until well mixed.
  3. Decrease the heat to medium and add the bell pepper, corn, chorizo sausage, olives, and the sugar mixture, and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Remove the wok from the heat and let rest for 4 minutes before serving.

This was very interesting. I followed the recipe as written except I doubled the sauce and used fresh chorizo which I sauteed first, but it was still a little dry and flavorless. More meat, don't use too much rice, and sauce it up. I probably won't make it again because there are so many great fried rice recipes out there, but I'm glad I tried it. Olives, fish sauce, corn and lime? Yes!
