Ginger Fried Rice

recipe
Grapeseed oil has a light quality that won't compete with the vivid flavor of the other ingredients. It also has a high smoke point, making it a good choice for stir-frying. Chilling the rice a day ahead helps prevent the grains from sticking together. To chill, spread onto a jelly-roll pan, cover, and refrigerate eight hours or overnight.
