the Ingredients

Very Special Fried Rice
  • 1½ tablespoon peanut oil, divided
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 4½ cups precooked rice
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 cm ginger, finely chopped
  • 3 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 180 grams Lap Cheong, roughly chopped (or bacon pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese cooking wine/ Shaoxing wine
  • 3 tablespoons light soy sauce

Chilli-Garlic Prawns:

  • 18 green (raw) prawns, shelled and de-veined
  • ½ tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped (seeds optional)

Special Equipment

  • Weber Gourmet BBQ System Wok


  • 01 Prepare the barbecue for direct cooking over medium-high heat (200°C to 260°C) with a wok. Preheat the wok for 10 minutes. While the barbecue is preheating, in a medium bowl, combine all of the prawn ingredients. Thread the prawns onto metal skewers and set aside.
  • 02 Add ½ a tablespoon of peanut oil to the wok and add the eggs. Close the barbecue lid and fry the eggs over direct medium-high heat, with the lid closed, for 2 minutes, or until cooked. Remove from the wok and roughly chop.
  • 03 Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of peanut oil to the wok and add the onion. Sautee over direct medium-high heat for 3 minutes, stirring as required and keeping the barbecue lid closed as much as possible throughout the cook.
  • 04 Add the garlic, ginger and sausage (or bacon) and continue cooking for 6 minutes, stirring as required.
  • 05 Add the cooked rice, peas, soy sauce, Shaoxing wine and continue to cook for a further 6 minutes, stirring as required. Place the prawns onto the cooking grill and grill over direct medium-high heat for 2 to 4 minutes, or until cooked through, turning halfway through the cooking time. Remove the prawns from the barbecue once cooked.
  • 06 Immediately serve the fried rice with the grilled prawns.
