In a saucepan, cook the omelet on both sides and cut it out into small stipes before putting them aside. Cut the chinese sausages in small slices and them set aside.

Add to the pan two tablespoons of olive oil, heat over high heat and once the temperature is high enough, fry the salted fish for 5 minutes so that it’s golden brown.

Remove the salted fish then sauté for 5 minutes the sweet sausages, the carrots and the green peas. Then add the salted fish, the white wine, the light soy sauce and mix well before adding the cooked rice. Mix everything together and then add the dark soy sauce, the omelette and the green onions on top.
