Spicy Thai Fried Rice

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil (or grapeseed oil)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 scallions, white and green parts
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 - 1 ½ cups chorizo or spicy salami, diced ( 6 - 8 oz )
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 2 cups cooked rice, white or brown
  • 6 cups mixed greens
  • 1 cup Napa cabbage, chopped
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Asian fish sauce
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Juice from ½ of a lime + lime wedges for serving
  • fine grain sea salt + freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Heat a wok, or heavy 12" skillet over high heat until it's very hot
  • Add the oil and swirl it around the pan
  • Add the onion, scallions, and garlic, giving them a quick stir, and cook until they've softened ( ~ 1-2 minutes )
  • Add the chorizo and jalapeño, sautéing until they start to caramelize ( ~ 2-3 minutes )
  • Add the raisins and the rice, stirring to combine, and spread the mix out to cover as much of the surface area as possible.
  • Press down with a spatula
  • Cook without moving the mix until the rice has had a chance to dry out and has taken on a little color ( ~ 1-3 minutes )
  • Stir it around a little and toss until it's golden in spots
  • Add the greens and cabbage, and toss until they're beginning to wilt ( ~ 5 minutes )
  • Sprinkle in the soy and fish sauces, coating the contents of the pan.
  • Then push everything away from the center of the pan and pour the eggs into the middle.
  • Cook until the eggs are custardy ( ~ 1 - 2 minutes )
  • Then mix everything in the pan, breaking up the eggs as you go
  • Add the lime juice and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Serve garnished with sliced scallions and a couple of lime wedges alongside
