Throw Some Canned Corn Into Your Fried Rice For A Balanced Bite
Fried rice is very versatile and works with tons of different ingredients. One of the best ingredients to use in fried rice is canned corn, which is similarly versatile.
Sweet-and-salty corn can complement any protein, especially char siu pork, which is the type of pork that many Chinese restaurants use for fried rice.
Ensure your other vegetables are relatively quick-cooking to match the corn so it doesn't become soggy. Good options include snow peas, purple cabbage, and mushrooms.
Many cooks prefer to use day-old rice to make their fried rice crispier, which may be best when using canned corn since residual added moisture is likely to enter the mix.
If you don’t have any pre-cooked rice, you can whip up a fresh batch, then spread it across a baking sheet and pop it in the fridge for roughly 30 minutes to dehydrate.
From there, feel free to get creative. Add a can of creamed corn for a hearty, creamy vegetarian dish, or hydrate your rice in the corn's sweet-salty canning liquid.
