Late Night Coconut Anchovy Fried Rice

Ever have one of those Friday nights where you start boozing too early and forget to eat, and then get home ravenous like a pregnant woman but only have random ingredients in the pantry?  Well, if you ever do, check out this recipe I improv’ed tonight.

A splash of olive and/or sesame oil
3 scallions, chopped
1 handful of edamame
1 tablespoon of dried coconut flakes
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 canned anchovy filets in oil, chopped
2 fresh shiitake, chopped
1 bowl of room temperature or cold cooked brown rice
1 free-range organic chicken egg, beaten
Salt, pepper, Sriracha sauce and/or shichimi togarashi to taste

Heat up the oil in a frying pan and sauté the scallions, edamame, coconut, garlic, anchovies and shiitake until they start to brown.  Add the rice mix thoroughly.  Then add the egg and stir until the egg is scrambled and cooked through.  Season to taste and serve immediately.  I’ve heard it tastes great while drunk and an excellent cure for hangovers too!  😉
