Brown Rice with Fried Dace and Edamame Recipe ( 美味豆豉鯪魚糙米饭 )

healthy brown rice with dace fish edamame recipe
Since I hit the 50s, I have been exploring more into healthy eating. I have heard a lot about the goodness of Brown Rice ( 糙米 ), and have been thinking how to make it tasty so that my family can accept the taste.

Brown Rice is a highly nutritious food, and according to Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health ( HSPH ), the fiber in brown rice helps lower cholesterol, moves waste through the digestive tract, promotes fullness, and may help prevent the formation of blood clots.

Gotta admit it is an acquired taste and honestly, I have not tried any appetizing brown rice until I visited Crystal Jade recently. It was brilliant of them to add the popular canned Fried Dace Fish into the rice, and I was determined to replicate their yummy dish. The moment I told my son I would be cooking brown rice for dinner one day, the first response I got was, “Yucks!” Well, I can truly connect cause I have never liked eating brown rice either, but this has changed since my last visit to the Chinese restaurant.

In this recipe, I am using the Natural Harvest Fresh Rice Organic Thai Mixed Fragrant Brown Rice ( 新鲜米有机香糙米 ), and Mili Fried Dace Fish with Salted Black Beans ( 豆豉鯪魚 ). I also did a bit of tweak to the original dish that was served in the restaurant by adding Edamame ( 日本枝豆 ), a popular Japanese young soy bean snack which is low in calories, contains no cholesterol, and an excellent source of protein, iron, and calcium.

I am happy to have introduced the one-pot dish to my family, and changed their perspective of the yucky food. I have paired my healthy brown rice with a Delicious Hairy Gourd Soup with Dried Conch Slices ( 節瓜响螺片汤 ).
