"This recipe has been submitted for play in ZWT8 – Australia/New Zealand. The recipe was found at Wattie’s - Food in a Minute website. Love Asian food but haven’t tried making it yourself? This tasty fried rice dish with succulent prawns, Asian sauces and a chilli kick is a great place to start. Reheating cooked rice requires caution due to a bacterium that can cause food borne illness. When dealing with cooked rice you should refrigerate as soon as cooled and do not reheat more than once. Because this recipe uses cooked rice it should not be reheated again. Discard any leftovers."

"Very nice stir-fry, wonderfully simple and quick, we really enjoyed this. I generally try to have cooked rice in the freezer so that we can enjoy stirfry, this particular batch of rice had had peas and corn added, and it went beautifully with the stirfry!! Thanks so much, BK, this was made for ZWT 8"
"Such a wonderful Asian recipe. Great flavors and easy to make! Thanks for offering this really great recipe."
"Yummmmm! We loved this gorgeous dish thanks BK! The only change I made was to toss and heat the rice and prawns, THEN add in the sweet chilli, soy, fish sauce and lime (I'd set them aside earlier in a jug) I figured it would give the rice a better finish. I used the juice of one whole (juicy) lime and love the lift it gave the dish. Something between fried rice, nasi goreng and a one pot rice dish and spectacularly good. Thanks for posting."
"Made for ZWT-8, this delicious stir-fry seems to have a decidedly more Asian influence than an Australian or New Zealand identity, but I suspect the prawns make it a product of "cuisine fusion". That said, it's most definitely a palate-pleasing & ingredient-friendly quick-fix that would be easily made on a week night. I had all the ingredients on-hand & esp liked the use of lime vs lemon. Versatility always gets high marks from me & this would be easily expanded by adding mushrooms or water chestnuts. You could even add chicken or use a different meat altogether. It's just a darned good recipe & was a good choice for DH & I to end this leg of the Tour. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us."
