Happy Good Friday, my friend! In case you have not even the slightest idea of what Good Friday is all about, it commemorates the death of Jesus Christ on the cross for our sins after which He resurrects on the third day known as Easter Sunday. What a great God we have! :) While many Christians all around the world celebrate today by fasting, I am here cooking up a dish for lunch. Forgive me, oh God.
The lunch today is not something as traditional as hot cross buns in Britain. It is merely some ideas that popped into my mind before I slept last night (again) to set the mood right. The holiday mood, perhaps. Besides that, I want to clear up all the leftover ingredients in the fridge. Oops!
My amateur creation is called Milkfish Fried Brown Rice because it comprises mainly milkfish and brown rice fried in a pan. That should give you a plentiful clue of what the dish would look like, right?
Milkfish Fried Brown Rice (serves 3)
2 cup brown rice
1/2 onion, diced
1 milkfish, deboned
- Rinse the brown rice once and cook with 4 1/2 cup water in a pan over high heat until it boils.
- Lower the heat to medium low and let it simmer for 15 minutes.
- Cook longer over low heat for 45 minutes and then turn off the stove.
- Heat olive oil in the pan over medium heat.
- Saute diced onion until slightly brown.
- Pour beaten eggs into the pan and let it be half-cooked.
- Add the deboned milkfish flakes into the egg mixture.
- Lastly, add the cooked brown rice into the milkfish-egg mixture and mix uniformly.
UPDATE: The addition-of-salt-and-pepper step was forgotten in the post!! Pardon!
