Ginger fried rice is a perfect Chinese New Year dish to make and master.

Get familiar with this easy yet sophisticated ginger fried rice recipe from Anthony Ricco, Chef de Cuisine at Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Spice Market. Topped with garlic and ginger-crusted fried (dragon) eggs, fried rice has never looked so fierce. 

Servings: 4


1/2 cup peanut oil
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh ginger root, minced
2 cups leeks, thinly sliced, washed and dried
4 cups day-old cooked rice (preferably jasmine), at room temperature
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons sesame oil
4 teaspoons soy sauce
  1. In a large skillet, heat 1/4 cup oil over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp and brown. With a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels and salt lightly.
  2. Reduce heat under skillet to medium-low and add 2 tablespoons oil and leeks. Cook about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until very tender but not browned. Season lightly with salt.
  3. Raise heat to medium and add rice. Cook, stirring well, until heated through. Season to taste with salt.
  4. In a nonstick skillet, fry eggs in remaining oil, sunny-side-up, until edges are set but yolk is still runny.
  5. Divide rice among four dishes. Top each with an egg and drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil and 1 teaspoon soy sauce. Sprinkle crisped garlic and ginger over everything and serve.
