Dinner for Two : Smoked Fish & Shrimp Fried Rice

Forget the main course and side dish, stir fried rice is a perfect "all-in-one-meal" on a lazy and rainy day. 
Still hungover with Thai Food, I decided to make my version of Khao Pad with a pinoy twist. Adding  smoked fish gives it more flavor and aroma. 


2 tblspn Vegetable oil
2 pcs Small Tomato
½ pc Onion, medium (chopped)
1 tblspn Garlic, chopped
2 pcs Chinese broccoli or kale, cut into bite size
1 tblspn Green Onion (1 inch long)
1 egg
1/4 cup smoked Fish
6 pcs Shrimp, deveined and shelled
2  cups Cooked Rice
4 tblspn Soy Sauce
2 tbslpn Tomato Paste
1/2 lime


Heat pan, sauté onion and garlic until aromatic
Add smoked fish and stir fry until cooked, add green onions, Chinese broccoli and tomato
Add egg, stirring continousy until scrambled
When egg is dried up, add shrimp, rice, soy sauce and tomato paste
Continue to stir fry until all combined,
Serve with lime on side

Food Note:
1. It's best to use day-old rice
