Spam fried rice

Hello Reader,

Tonight I had a choice between leftover sous vide kangaroo and Spam. I don’t love kangaroo meat. I do like Spam a lot.

Spam fried rice


  • Spam
  • Rice1
  • Shallots
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Fennel
  • Coriander
  • Spring onion
  • Red chillies
  • Carrot
  • Daikon
  • Cabbage
  • MSG2
  • Peanut oil
  • Sesame oil
  • Soy sauce


  1. Dice the fennel and shallots; slice the coriander roots and stalks; mince the garlic and ginger, and slice the spring onion whites.
  2. For garnish, slice the spring onion greens and red chilli. The coriander leaves are also a great garnish.
  3. Dice the Spam.
  4. Julienne the carrot and daikon.
  5. Shred and cross-shred the cabbage.
  6. Heat a wok and add some peanut oil and sesame oil.

  1. The rice should be cold and cooked within the last 24 hours. Ideally, it should be dry, so the grains fall apart.
  2. King of flavour
