We gave this fried rice instant dish from Thai Kitchen a try during a quick hurried dinner one night. The instant rice is ready after a short microwaving and can be used as a ready made side dish. The shelf stable product although fully hydrated would be useful on a short canoe trip if the added weight is not an issue. It could be heated by immersing in a pot of boiling water.
An OK side dish if you are in a hurry but any homemade fried rice you would make would be much better. 5 out of 10.
