Pineapple Fried Rice

So fragrant and tasty, don’t be afraid of the fish sauce it really makes the dish come together with the lime zest. I use ham because pineapple is a good digestive tool for pork. But crab meat, or crackling roasted pork or plain vegetarian would be good choices too. Bottom line is, fried rice is what you make to finish leftover and one of those dishes where you can throw in anything.
