Fried rice is the bomb!  It takes just minutes to make and the ingredients can be changed to suit your taste. How good is that?

This recipe is a lighter version of the fried rice that I usually make. While browsing the aisles in the grocery store a while back I discovered Ponzu. It is a soy based sauce, but lighter than regular soy sauce.It is also less salty tasting  and has a citrus flavor.  As far as the Oyster Sauce… you will be amazed at the difference it makes.
