Cantonese fried rice

Cantonese fried rice is a version of sautéed Chinese rice best known and appreciated in the West, as well as one of the most common preparations of Chinese-Italian cuisine.


  • 1 portion cooled steamed rice

  • 1 beaten egg

  • 1 portion of diced cooked ham

  • 1 portion of cooked peas (I recommend those frozen and cooked in boiling water for a few minutes and not those pre-cooked in the tin)

  • 2 tablespoons rice wine

  • vegetable oil

  • salt


  • Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or pan. Pour in the egg and scramble it.

  • Add the rice and the ham, continue stirring over high heat for a few minutes.

  • Deglaze well with the rice wine.

  • Add the peas and salt, continuing to mix.
