Easy Spam Fried Rice
Try this easy spam fried rice recipe made with crispy pan fried spam, day old rice, fluffy eggs & frozen peas. Seasoned with an easy three ingredient sauce!
- 2½ Tablespoons avocado oil
- 1 12 oz spam cut into ¾ inch cubes
- 4 cups steamed jasmine rice it's best to use leftover cold rice
- 4 large eggs beaten
- ½ cup frozen peas
- 2 stalks scallions chopped
- 1 teaspoon toasted white sesame seeds for garnish
- 1 teaspoon butter or toasted sesame oil optional for richer flavor
Mix the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Heat a large nonstick pan over medium high heat and add 2 teaspoons of the oil. Scramble the beaten eggs then remove them from the pan and set it aside.
Add the rest of the cooking oil to the pan and add the spam cubes in a single layer. Let the spam get brown and crispy on one side and then flip them over to brown and crisp on the other side. This should take about 4 to 5 minutes. Don't skip this step as it helps to flavor the oil.
Add the cold rice and sauce to the pan. Make sure to break apart any clumps of rice by pressing down with the flat side of your spatula or spoon. It's important to coat each grain of rice with the oil and sauce. Add in a teaspoon more oil if you find your rice is sticking together.
Once your rice is fully separated and coated with the sauce, add in the eggs, frozen peas, and chopped scallions. Stir fry them together until the frozen peas turn bright green. (Optional: finish with a teaspoon of butter or toasted sesame oil for a richer flavor).
Garnish with sesame seeds and extra scallions. Serve immediately.
