  • You can substitute shrimp for chunks of chicken or salmon, or you can prepare a vegetarian version of the dish.
  • If you want, you can also add bean sprouts and smoked ham.
  • This fried rice makes a great accompaniment to grilled chicken or BBQ ribs.

  • Fried rice is one of those international foods that Puerto Ricans have adopted as our own. I prefer to make a homemade version that’s to my taste, and vary the ingredients according to what I have in the fridge or what my family likes.
