    For breakfast I fried half a can of teryaki-flavored spam w/3 eggs and I threw it into a ramen noodle bowl. I also put some sesame oil in it. kinda gross sounding, but I was hungry.

    I like the onion and pepper suggestion. why the avocado oil? never used it. I live in Alaska and we're a little behind.

    I think sesame oil pairs better with teriyaki spam. Just my opinion.

    basically one of the healthiest and most versatile oil around...olive oil and coconut oil are healthy but break down at much lower heat and lose benefits and even burn
    Advocado Oil has the highest smoke point and is the highest temp oil around...taste great

    I have read sesame oil isn't that good for you, but of course it could be propaganda like when coconut oil was not good for you.

    worth a try
    I downloaded some info on cooking oils recently and was looking into it

    info if you care

    sesame oil
    smoke point = 410 degrees
    omega 6 to omega 3 ration = 42:1

    Advocado Oil
    smoke point = 520 degrees
    omega 6 to omega 3 ratio = 12:1
    +high in vitamin E
    68%omega -9 fatty acids(anti cancer + more)

    Ideal omega 6 to omega 3 ratio is 13:1 or something so oils that are too low or two high are not as healthy(allegedly)

    you can find charts about oils with a google...very interesting for those who cook their own food

    Yep, I tend to stick to canola for cooking and evoo for everything else. I'm not about to keep a million oils around.

    I'd of minced some garlic and ginger, sweated them in some oil, added them to the bowl along with some finely chopped green onion for that dish.

    I'll try it. just used a couple sprinkles of sesame oil strictly for taste. Thanks for the info. I love avocados, but it's hard to find good ones at the grocery store in Fairbanks, Ak. Thanks for your service Rambo.

    I'm mildly allergic to avacado. I like them, but whenever I eat one i get gut rot and poop like ten minutes later. I've been using grapeseed oil for things I need a high smoke temp on. Any info on that oil sensei?

    I haven't used grapeseed yet. I stick with canola because of the high smoke temp and neutral flavor.

    To me they are similar as they both have a high smoke temp and are neutrally flavored. Coconut oil, or ghee, or tallow, to me flavor everything they touch. I think I remember reading somewhere grapeseed was great for cast iron as the fat when heated forms a solid non stick layer on the pan.

    I'm glad other people like fried spam. Sliced thinly and fried that shit is a great bacon replacement. Just like fried baloney it's a great with a slice of cheese and mustard in a sandwich.

    I am a novice student at best, I barely know what it all means

    Healthiest Cooking Oil Comparison Chart with Smoke Points and Omega 3 Fatty Acid Ratios
    this is the chart ^^ I was checking...many others like it, but most of the numbers are virtually identical

    canola taste is one of the best but ratio is high...lot of my favorites are best with it...a lot also depends on how refined the oil is

    grapeseed has 676:1 ratio very high...never seen it or used it...might be great, use what works...no need to shit out rot gut

    the problem with omega-6(allegedly) is that a little is good and necessary, but too much of it can actually produce inflammation...but if your not using a ton of it's probably still healthy

    All I know for sure it there is a ton of different oils to cook with
