Thai Basil and Seafood Fried Rice

I adore Thai food and knowing i can make it virtually syn free on Slimming World is Fab!!!
This is a quick and easy recipe and so much better than a take away, not just for lack of syns but taste too!

Just 1 syn for the whole pot on extra easy, so if you really greedy, like me it will serve two, not so hungry maybe four...


3 garlic cloves
1 thai red chilli (more if you like it spicy)
1 lb squid cleaned and ringed
20 raw shrimp
½ red pepper thinly sliced
½ onion sliced
1 cup edamame beans
8oz oriental mushrooms
handful thai basil leaves
1 tbsp oyster sauce (1 syn)
1 tsp dark soy sauce
2 tsp light soy sauce
cooked rice for 2


Blitz the garlic and chilli in a blender.
Mix together the oyster sauce and the soy sauces
In a wok sprayed with frylight, stir fry all the veggies for 1 minute, add the chilli and garlic, stir and add the shrimp and squid stir for 1 minute then add the sauce, stir in the rice and heat it all through, take off the heat and tear in the basil. 
Season with fish sauce if needed.
