This is not meant to be an authentic recipe. It is however, something easy and very tasty that compliments any asian inspired meal. This is a recipe that comes in handy when you don't have the time or energy to go through the traditional steps of your typical stir fried rice. I came up with this when I was pressed for a quick weeknight meal. I served it with grilled snapper topped with ginger lime butter. Don't be surprised if you end up serving this to company as it looks very pretty on the plate!
