Sriracha Fried Rice

Sure, fried rice is already a dish often full of strong flavors, but who denies the Sriracha gods when the perfect use comes around? Sriracha’s delicious heat, and lack of vinegary aftertaste, make it a perfect addition to this dish to deliver some extra oomph. The touch of ginger, too, gives this Sriracha fried rice recipe a delicious edge. It’s earthy, warm, and bold all in one.

Sriracha fried rice is good on its own. You can serve it as a vegetarian entrée or side, as is. But for those meat lovers out there, top it with grilled chicken or shrimp as well. It takes on a whole different world of heartiness. Note: Fried rice was invented to take care of those clumpy rice leftovers, so do not use freshly cooked rice. The taste and texture will be totally different than you expect.
