Was a big hit with at a big Italian family dinner. They even wanted the recipe! It was nice to not have soy sauce in a fried rice. I'll be using Chineese Five Spice more often now.

Very good fried rice and my first made with jasmine rice. I'm not fond of five spice powder so I subbed Emeril's Creole Seasoning (aka Bayou Blast) for a little extra heat. Thanks to a Canadian Zaar friend I'm fortunate to have the Szechuan peppercorns which, in my opinion, made the dish. I also used turkey bacon rather than ham and it worked just fine.

Fantastic! Versatile! Easy to make! I refused to eat slimy, soy sauce-covered fried rice after being stationed in Okinawa, Japan for 3 years. Fortunately, I found this recipe. I omitted the peppers, onion, and red chilies (per my 6-year-old daughter's request) and the recipe was outstanding. I made the recipe as stated and the results were spectacular. I believe the key ingredients are the ginger, garlic, sesame oil, kosher salt, and 5 spice powder. I LOVE this recipe.

Quite good. I really enjoyed the 5 spice and jasmine rice combination. With just a tablespoon of oil, it's much lower in fat than traditional fried rice and is a colorful marriage of many of flavors and textures. I did serve with just a bit of low-sodium soy sauce. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

An extremely tasty recipe! I had to make a few alterations to suit what I had to hand - mainly powdered ginger instead of fresh and omiting the ham, scallions and chillies but it was still lovely. I threw in some leftover sweetcorn from lunchtime and small handful of rasins which give a lovely sweet taste to it. All in all a great dish! Thanks.
