Salted Fish Fried Rice

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Pikake21

I order this dish all the time at Chinese restaurants, so this is my little attempt to re-create it at home. I find that it's usually not the fish that tastes super salty, but instead the egg. This recipe was taken from an online newspaper.

This was great; used brown rice and leftover spareribs instead of prawns. Next time will add about half a cup of salted fish to really get that flavor
