curry powder

milk

Sesame Oil

spam

My version of Hawaiian Fried Rice is inspired by a dish that I had in Chattanooga at one of my favorite restaurants, Thai Smiles.  The dish there is called Hawaii Fried Rice.

The original dish uses chicken for the main protein source. Being that Hawaii is in the name, I thought it would be fun to use SPAM instead.

Asians have enjoyed fried rice for centuries. It may have been invented during the Sui dynasty in China. Most countries in Southeast Asia have their own varieties.

Why SPAM?

SPAM has been around since 1937 when Hormel introduced this new lunch meat. Between 1941-1945, SPAM was shipped to our troops. It didn’t require refrigeration and it had a long shelf life.
