Sorry de Roache but this was *way* too salty for our liking. If I make again I would definitely leave out the salt and just rely on the soy and the oyster sauce. For dietary reasons I cut back on the frying oil. I have Trini friends here in Australia and hoped to copy a recipe of theirs but unfortunately this one wasn't the one.
this was the closest i got the the real thing.do you know how to make the fried rice that is made in the trinidad chinese restaurants? american chinese fried rice is completely different and not as tasty.you have to wonder how the same "chinese" can be so different in two countries.
i used a little less 5 spice powder and it turned out ok
