I love it when I come up with an idea for a completely novel dish, and it works!
It's probably not completely novel; I'll Google it in a few minutes to see how unoriginal I really am.
But I've never seen or tasted this: A baked dish of rice and eggs, studded with shrimp and scallions. The eggs, which we stirred directly into the cold, cooked rice, were seasoned with Sriracha sauce, fish sauce, and a bit of sesame oil. The casserole was oiled. The food baked (covered) at 350ºF for less than a half-hour.
It came out fluffy, warm and inviting. You just scoop out servings, and add extra seasonings at the table.
I couldn't help but think of this as a sort of alternative to bread pudding... And my mind is filled with possibilities for flavors next time, including a sweet version.
