The bustling K’ya Bistro & Bar located at the Casa del Camino Resort in Laguna Beach offers a diverse menu highlighting flavors of the Mediterranean. The bistro reflects a lively San Francisco-esque ambiance, however, is located only steps from the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
Executive Chef and Newport Beach native, Chef Craig Connole is hailed for his creative approach to cuisine. Known for his droll sarcasm and forward-thinking approach, Connole shifted the direction of K’ya in January 2009 by creating a menu composed of a myriad of small plates. When he’s not cooking, the California surfer at heart has been known to hit the waves before he hits the kitchen.
Here is a fried rice recipe from the home kitchen of Chef Connole that is the perfect weeknight solution to a hearty, no-fuss dinner, that still brings the flavor.
- 2 cups cooked rice
- 1⁄2 cup turkey bacon
- 3⁄4 cup frozen peas and corn mix
- 2 eggs (beaten)
- 2 tbsp. Soy sauce
Heat a saute pan and add a dash of oil or cooking spray. I use a teflon pan. Add bacon and cook to desired doneness. Add peas and corn and rice. Cook until heated through then add eggs and let cook 30 seconds then stir and cook through. Add soy sauce and stir. Then eat!
