Kikking Up The Flavor With Kikkoman : Island Style Fried Rice w/ Spam #KikkomanSabor

This week we are sharing one of our favorite recipes, Kikkoman style! First I was going to make a sour sweet & spicy fruit salad that would have gone perfectly with Kikkoman's Ponzu Lime Sauce. It was going to have all the characteristic of the traditional Mexican fruit salads, with chilito, limon and yet a little bit of sweetness. But my plan was foiled when the local stores didn't carry this particular ponzu sauce and I had to re-strategize. 

So instead I decided to share with you a recipe that comes from my children's islander roots. We eat a ton of white rice, almost with every meal and there is always that left over white rice that you don't know what to do with. Being Mexican, my mom would get that rice and make arroz con leche, but my kids will make fried rice. Fried rice from left over rice is delicious and perfect for any meal including breakfast. This is the basic recipe we use but it is very easy to make it your own by either adding other ingredients like corn and peas or substituting the spam for another meat. There are times that I like to add green jalapeño pepper or sriracha, but today I made the kid friendly version so the whole family could enjoy this for dinner.

Serves 5-6 comfortably

  • 1 cup Kikkoman Soy Sauce
  • 1 onion minced
  • 5  eggs
  • 4 1/2 cups rice, cooked and if possible day old
  • 1 cup green onion (scallion) , chopped fine
  • 1 can spam, diced

1. Scramble eggs on medium high heat until almost done. When they are ready set these aside in separate bowl.

2. Sauté onions and Spam on medium high heat until spam is browned to your liking. 
3. Add Kikkoman Soy Sauce to the pan slowly and boil for a few minutes on high till sauce thickens.

4. Slowly add the cooled rice and eggs to the mixture, stirring carefully so all rice breaks up and gets thoroughly mixed. Leave on medium to low heat for another 2 minutes. Sprinkle scallions and serve hot.

Viola! Dinner is served, and it smells amazing. The only problem I has was the I was out of day old rice (because a certain someone ate it for breakfast) and I had to make fresh, which made the overall effect a little softer than was desirable. But it's still delicious.
