Todays dinner was spicy fried rice with baby squid, and a salad of sliced cucumber and shiso leaves with bought onion dressing. (Shiso is a kind of herb.)
Fried rice has got to be one of the easiest things to make and is great for using up left overs, or odds and ends lying around in the fridge. To make this I heated some sesame oil in the frypan, added the squid which had been shaken in flour, salt and chili powder, and fried until brown. Next I added some sliced onion and fried that briefly. Then I added cooked rice and continued cooking till it was heated through. A splash of soy sauce and a shake of black pepper finished it off.
It was VERY delicious!
