  • a few mushrooms chopped
  • a small packed of smoked salmon broken up
  • Chinese 5 spice - about a teaspoon
  • 2 eggs to scramble into the mixture 
  • a dash of fish sauce
  • one tablespoon of soya sauce or as desired

  1. saute the onion, ginger and garlic in canola oil for 5 minutes 
  2. then add the vegetables and spices, after a few minutes scramble the eggs into the mixture 
  3. add the fish sauce and salmon stir free until vegetables are cooked then mix in the cooked rice with soya sauce 
  4. enjoy :-)
