Prep your fried rice:
- In a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of neutral oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, tossing occasionally until mushrooms are browned, 5-7 minutes. Season lightly with salt, then transfer mushrooms to a bowl and set aside.
- Add sesame oil to the rice and toss with hands to coat each grain. Add remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the same skillet and cook garlic and scallions until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add rice to the skillet and toss. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to push the rice into a flat, even layer and cook until rice becomes slightly golden, about 2 minutes. Toss rice and repeat two more times.
- Add Omsom starter and mix to coat the rice. Add mushrooms and toss to combine. While hot, divide rice evenly and serve with an egg yolk on top if desired.
Prep your salad:
- Toss scallions and cilantro with vinegar, oil, and sesame seeds. Season with salt to taste and serve salad alongside fried rice.
