Salted fish fried rice ~ 咸鱼炒饭


This is rustic home cooking with simple ingredients consisting of salted fish, brown rice, chicken and eggs.  Many would love to have a bowl of this fried rice while there may be others who are put off by the strong smell of Asian cooking and in this case, the salted fish.   But to my family members they always look forward to this simple yet delicious one-pot meal!




Yummy ~  I served this with some tomato chutney on the side.
