What do you usually have when you visit a Thai restaurant or eatery? Besides a good bowl of Tom Yum Goong (Thai spicy prawn soup), olive fried rice is a must-order for me.
There are different types of preserved olives in the market. This Thai-Chinese style fried rice uses salted black Chinese olives preserved in brine, not those Mediterranean black olives you find on pizzas. These canned olives are from China (of course) and can be bought from Thai supermarkets or grocery stores in some of the neighbourhood markets.
The unique flavour of the black Chinese olive gives a twist to the, otherwise, boring fried rice dish.
A perfect one-dish meal!
