Tuna Fried Rice Recipe

Hubby turned our canned tuna and leftover rice into a creative dish. The Tuna Fried Rice is an interesting alternative to our usual garlic fried rice.

This recipe can be a complete meal on its own with a little sprinkle of pepper, salt and lemon juice. And, just like any other fried rice, it can be paired to any of your favorite dish. As for me, I like to serve fried rice with saucy dishes.

What I like about this particular recipe is the crunchiness of the carrots. Initially the carrots were intended to add color to the dish. It served its purpose though and as a bonus it did make the fried rice fun and healthy to eat.

Tuna Fried Rice

Here is our Tuna Fried Rice recipe:

1 can tuna chunks, drained
3-4 cups cooked rice (leftover rice)
1 medium size carrot, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
Pinch of salt
Cooking oil

Cooking Procedure:
1) Heat oil in a deep pan or wok.
2) Fry the garlic until golden brown.
3) Stir in the diced carrots and cook for 1 minute (or until tender if you desire).
4) Add the tuna chunks and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
5) Add the cooked rice gradually in order to blend well with the stir-fried mixture of tuna and carrots.
6) Season with salt and stir constantly to heat the rice throughout.
7) Serve hot!

This recipe serves up to 4 persons.
