Special prawn fried rice

There were complaints all around last night about this meal, only because there was no second helping. I have posted a similar recipe at the start of my blog but I much preferred this one. I couldn't find nasi goreng in tesco, so I figured that Tom yum paste would be fine as a substitute.  The recipe is from a new cook book, ' Good Housekeeping, 30 minute cook book'.

Note Added; Check the spiciness of the Tom yum paste, my sister in law made it with obviously a much hotter one and it nearly blew their socks off.


Serves 4 
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
6 tablespoons nasi goreng paste
250g cooked king prawns
200g green cabbage, shredded
2 x 250g packs of microwave rice
30 mls soy sauce
15 mls sunflower oil
2 eggs, beaten
2 spring onions, finely sliced
1 lime, halved

Heat the sesame oil in a wok and fry the nasi goreng paste for 1-2min. Add the prawns and cabbage, and fry for 2-3min. Next add the rice and soy sauce, and cook for a further 5min, stirring occasionally.
To make the omelette, heat the sunflower oil in a nonstick frying pan (around 25.5cm/10in in diameter) and add the eggs. Swirl around to cover the base in a thin layer and cook for 2-3min until set.
Roll up the omelette and cut into slivers. Serve the rice scattered with the egg and spring onions, and pass around the lime halves to squeeze over.
