Thai Pineapple Fried Rice



This recipe is inspired by my daughter Tanisha who loves Thai food.   
So this is my take on Thai Pineapple Fried Rice with Smoked Sausage.
 
My Pantry Ingredients

  •  3 eggs
  • 3 cups Jasmine Rice (cooked)
  • 1 1/2 cup Fresh Diced Pineapple Chunks
  • 13.5 oz package of Johnsonville Smoked Sausage (slice)
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Green Scallions (chopped  and divided)
  • 4 Cloves of garlic (minced and divided)
  • 1/4 cup Red Chili Peppers (divided)
  • 1/4 cup Green Chili Peppers (divided)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice 
  • 2 tbsp fresh minced ginger (divided)
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro (chopped and divided)
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil (divided)
  • 2 tbsp  Sesame Seed Oil  (divided)
  • 1 tbsp of lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
 
Preparation

Preheat your wok. I am using a non-stick wok, so less oil will be required for frying. You need to make sure your wok is very hot.

1.     Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sesame oil to hot wok.
2.     Add part of the garlic and chili peppers to flavor hot oil to fry eggs.  Fry eggs, once done remove and set aside to add back later.
3.     Add the balance of olive and sesame oil, then add smoked sausage and stir fry until golden brown. 
4.     Then add part of the scallions and cilantro (hold some back for garnish),minced ginger, chili peppers, and garlic.  Then add jasmine rice ( fluff rice with a folk before adding), in addition make sure your rice is warm or room temperature.  Cold rice will cool your pan down. Stir rice to keep the grains loose, then add back fried eggs and blend well.
5.     Add balance of ginger and peppers, then lime juice, lemon zest, fish sauce, and soy sauce, once the rice is well coated with all those wonderful Thai flavors, add pineapple chunks and blend well.  If you want a little more spice you can red pepper flakes.

     Place fried rice in serving dish and garnish with scallions, cilantro, red and green chili peppers.  Served rice with the traditional Thai sides, cucumbers, lime or lemon slices and bean sprouts.
