Brown Scallions Fried Rice with Oy-Butter Shrimp
This Brown Scallions Fried Rice with Oy-Butter Shrimp recipe was developed by VeeTee member Hidemi Walsh
. Here's her story behind this recipe:
I love oyster sauce and know the combination of oyster sauce and butter makes so tasty flavor. I added those to my fried rice. In Japan, there is Negi which is a type of long onion and in between scallion and leek. When you cook negi until very browned (not burned), it brings out wonderful savory flavor. Whenever I made fried rice, I always added negi to my fried rice when I lived in Japan. Unfortunately, I can’t find negi in my town now but tried with scallions. I figured it worked! Just smaller than negi but the same flavor is brought out and delicious fried rice was made!
