Instructions
 

Let's Prepare The Rice

  • This dish is a terrific way to use up any leftover white rice you may have in your fridge or freezer.
    Because of the texture, I chose parboiled rice for this recipe. You may, however, use your preferred choice of rice.
  • Wash the extra starch from the parboiled rice under running water until the water becomes clear to help prevent sticky clumpy rice.

  • In a saucepan, combine the 4½ cups water, rice, and salt.
    Bring to a boil over medium heat until all of the water has evaporated, leaving behind shelly fluffy rice.
  • Allow the rice to cool to room temperature. The rice can be cooked the day before and refrigerated. However, if you are using old leftover rice from the refrigerator, remove it and set it aside to come to room temperature.

Fry the Pollock Fish Cubes

  • Soak pollock for 10 minutes in vinegar or lime water. This is thought to help get rid of part of the fishy odor.
    To eliminate excess water, drain the acid water and pat dry with paper towels.

  • On a cutting board, cut each fillet into approximately 2-inch cubes. Each fillet should yeild about 6 cubes.
    Pollock Fish
  • Season pollock cubes with my Homemade Jamaican Jerk Marinade recipe or Jamaican Walkerswood Jerk Seasoning that may be purchased from Amazon Fresh.

  • Set aside overnight or for 2 hours in the refrigerator to marinate. Remove fish cubes from the refrigerator and allow them to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before frying.
    Pollock Fish
  • Heat the oil in a large deep metal saucepan or wok for 2 to 3 minutes. Using tongs, carefully place each pollock cube into the hot oil. Cook and brown for about 2 minutes on each side.

  • Removed cooked fish from hot oil and set aside in a bowl.
    The remaining bit and pieces at the bottom of the pot will add a lot of flavor to the remaining ingredients.

Let's Make Jerk Fish Fried Rice

  • In a small bowl, mix together 3 medium eggs, salt, and black pepper using a whisk.
    Scramble the eggs in the same aluminum pot until done. Removed from the pot and set aside in a bowl.
    beaten eggs
  • Cook for 3 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon, after adding the mixed veggies, diced green bell peppers, stir fry veggies. Season vegetables with garlic powder, complete seasoning, and onions.
    This is optional, but I added a few scotch bonnet pepper slices for more heat.

  • Combine the cooked rice with the vegetable mixture. Pour the tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and toss the ingredients thoroughly together.
    You may use the traditional soy sauce instead of the balsamic vinegar.
