Spam Fried RiceFried Rice. Sometimes you need it and going out isn’t an option. With a little forward thinking, (making Chinese Style Sausage and Shrimp Rice the day before), one can make this Spam Fried Rice recipe.  I steered away from the classic style of fried rice, as I wanted to play with the Umami flavor in this rice recipe and add my own Hawaiian spin on it.  I had hen of the woods mushrooms, yellow peppers and Spam around, so I fried those ingredients up and added a duck egg omelette to make the rice a meal unto itself.  This recipe can be used as a side dish or made into a main course.  A grilled or fried piece of meat (marinated in Teriyaki Base Sauce), steamed fish or vegetables can easily be topped to this Spam Fried Rice recipe, or just garnished and eaten as is!

Instructions
  • The day before you make this recipe, make Chinese Style Sausage and Shrimp Rice. Once made, spread the half of the rice onto a sheet tray with edges, into a single layer, allowing the rice to cool, evaporate some of its moisture and dry the edges of the rice. This is the best way to cool the rice and dry it out. You can use a fan, to speed this process up. Let the rice sit for an hour to cool, or 30 minutes with the fan. Transfer the rice to a container and refrigerate overnight.
  • In a wok or cast iron skillet (which I prefer as my western style range doesn't have the BTU's that a wok burner has, and just doesn't get as hot as a wok with my style range), place over high heat for 4 minutes, until just starting to smoke. Add the oil, tilting to evenly coat the surface and add the cubed Spam. Brown each side for about 2 minutes, then transfer to a bowl.
  • Place the empty skillet back over high heat and let sit for another minute to re-heat. Add the oil and mushrooms, sautéeing until lightly browned about 6 - 7 minutes. These mushrooms will add texture and some umami to the dish.
  • Add in the bell pepper, giving a nice splash of color and flavor to the finished dish. Sauté the peppers with the mushrooms for about 4 minutes, until tender. Add in the garlic and ginger, stirring for a minute, just slightly cooking them. Transfer everything to the bowl with the Spam.
  • In a cup or mug, whisk the two duck or chicken eggs with a fork, lightly seasoning with soy sauce | tamari | liquid aminos | shoyu, a pinch of salt and few drops of sesame oil. Add the oil to the hot pan, tilting to evenly coat the bottom of the skillet and add the egg mixture. Tilt the pan, to coat the bottom with the egg mixture and cook it like an omelette. Once cooked through, flip out onto a cutting board and allow to cool slightly.
  • Fold the egg disk onto itself and slice the omelette into noddle width pieces. Add the egg to the bowl of other cooked ingredients and have ready.
  • Place the skillet or wok back over high heat and let heat for 2 minutes, getting hot. Add the remaining oil, tilting to coat the bottom evenly, then add the cooked, cooled and lightly rubbed rice (making sure all the rice has separated and no lumps of rice exist) into the pan. Press the rice into the pan, evening it out and let the rice sit for 2 minutes, browning the rice. stir the rice, press down again and leave another 2 minutes. Repeat this step one more time, to heat all the rice and brown it all evenly.
  • Add the soy sauce | tamari | liquid aminos | shoyu and toasted sesame oil to the cooked ingredients and toss to coat. Add the cooked ingredients from the bowl into the skillet and toss to incorporate all the ingredients together. The rice is ready to serve.
  • Portion the Spam Fried Rice into individual bowls or serving platter. Garnish with sesame seeds, Shichimi Togarashi, shiso or thinly sliced green onions and a bottle of Sriracha Hot Sauce and your favorite soy sauce | tamari | liquid aminos | shoyu.
