Hot and Sweet Ginger Scallion Fried Rice


Hope you all had a beautiful long weekend and you and your house is all set for a gorgeous week. My weekend, lets say it was good; I just have a sink full of dishes staring at me, hampers full of laundry pleading my attention and just about everything in my house not in its place. Good Lord, what I was doing on long weekend I don’t know!


OK before I start cleaning the aftermath of long weekend let me share with you my yet another ridiculously easy and delicious go to recipe, “Hot and Sweet Fried Rice”. Well this recipe is like a sister recipe for “Soba Noodles with Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce” one of the most loved recipes here on Simply Reem. The flavor profile is almost same with little changes here and there. This fried rice is fun and easy to make and it’s a perfect meal for any hour. Trust me a meal cannot get any easier than this!


If you want you can add some veggies or meat of your choice. To make really good fried rice you need cooked rice that is a day or two days old, trust me it makes all the difference. So boil some extra rice, keep it in the refrigerator and give a try. I am sure you will love it.


So you all have a beautiful week and enjoy!

Hot and Sweet Ginger Scallion Fried Rice

Yield: 2 serving


  • 3 cups rice, cooked, preferably a day old
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 cup chopped scallions
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • Salt as needed.
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • Lime wedges on side.
  • For Sauce-
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce (I like Franks Red Hot Sauce, but you can use any brand)
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar


  1. In a bowl mix all the ingredients for sauce and keep it aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large wok or skillet on high heat. When the oil starts to shimmer add the rice and stir-fry it for 30-45 seconds.
  3. Now quickly add the sauce and keep stir-frying the rice for another minute.
  4. Add the scallions (reserving 1 tablespoon for sprinkling on top) and sesame oil and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Remove the wok from the heat; add the chopped cilantro and lime juice and toss everything well. Check for seasoning and add salt if needed.
  6. Take out the fried rice in the serving platter, top with reserved scallion and serve immediately.


You can adjust the heat according to your taste.
