We've all been there. You are casting round for something with which to make a meal and come across something from the back of the freezer. Then it gives you the job of what to do.
Cod with egg fried rice
It really was a 'Mother Hubbard's cupboard' state of affairs when I made the above rather unphotogenic repast. You will see that from the list of ingredients.
A small onion, chopped
3 tbsp rice, washed and boiled
1 filet of cod in breadcrumbs, oven roasted
125g drained baked beans
1 dstsp Chinese 5 spice
1 tbsp light soy sauce
The fish was roasted in the oven and the rice washed to remove the starch. The rice was boiled and drained. While it was being cooked the onion was fried off in olive oil and the spices and soy sauce added. Drained the tomato sauce from the baked beans, add to the onions and then the rice. These ingredients were heated together and the egg cracked into the pan and stirred rapidly into the ingredients in the pan.
Served with the cod fillet on top.
It actually turned out quite well.
