Prawn & Egg Fried Rice

Ready in under half an hour, I'm betting your local takeaway can't do it any quicker-or cheaper!!


Serves 4, approx 75p per person


Prep 10 mins, Cooking 15 mins


200g Basmati rice, use loose or boil in the bag

200g prawns, frozen or fresh

1 onion, chopped or a bunch of spring onions, chopped

3 cloves garlic, chopped

3 medium eggs, beaten

200g frozen peas, defrosted

pinch of chilli flakes

Cook the rice according to pack instructions , drain then set aside.

Heat some oil in a large frying pan & cook the prawns for 1 minute until just pink. Remove from the pan & set aside.

Fry the onion in a little more oil until soft, then add the garlic & chilli flakes & cook for another few minutes.

Pour the eggs into the pan, let them start to set then stir to break them up.

Add the rice to the pan & quickly mix together then stir in the peas & prawns. 


This would be great with chicken too!
