  • You can prepare a large serving of this recipe and freeze it for later.
  • Do not add too much salt when preparing the rice, because the soy sauce has a high salt content.
  • Allow the rice to cool down completely or prepare it one day in advance, before mixing it with the other ingredients, so that it does not stick.
  • Place the onions and soy sauce on the table as condiments, if you wish.
