Prawn and Brussels Sprouts Fried Rice

Recently, I went to a Chinese restaurant where we ordered prawn and cabbage fried rice. We loved it and so I tried to re-create the dish at home using simple ingredients. Didn’t want to use the different Asian sauces and so used just soy sauce and chilli sauce to give it the typical Chinese flavour. And also used brussels sprouts which gave a slightly different texture to the dish.

An easy meal to satiate your Chinese taste buds. And also a great lunch/tiffin box idea for the busy mornings or weekday dinners.
