Tom Yum Fried Rice

This recipe was inspired by my favorite Tom Yum soup. I used the basic ingredients of that soup to make into fried rice, the result was amazing. If you love Thai foods, then I recommend to try this recipe.

3 cups cold cooked rice
8-10 medium shrimps, peeled
2 cloves garlic
2 stalks green onions, cut into 1 inch length separate the white parts
1 stalk lemon grass, cut into 1 inch diagonally
2 thumb-sized galangal root, crushed then thinly sliced
2 kaffir lime leaves
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 ½ tbsp. fish sauce
1 piece tom yum cube (optional)
salt to taste
lemon wedges (optional)
2 tbsp. cooking oil

1. Heat oil in a wok, saute garlic for few seconds, then add white part of the green onion, lemon grass, galangal root and kaffir lime leaves. Stir to mix well and cook for 30 seconds.
2. Add shrimps, red pepper flakes, fish sauce and tom yum cube. Cook until shrimps turns into pink or orange.
3. Add cold rice, cook until rice grains are heated through. Season with salt or add more fish sauce. Add green onions, mix well.
4. Serve with lemon wedges if desired.
