Using a wok or skillet, add the oil, bring to a high smoking heat, then toss in the garlic, bring it back down to medium heat, and sauté for 3 minutes.
Once the garlic is golden brown, please remove it from the oil with a slotted spoon and set it aside.
Keeping the heat at medium, add the rice to the pot and mix to coat in the oil, press and spread it out onto the pan, and leave to cook for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, mix and toss again, then repeat the press and spread out onto the pan, and leave to cook for another 5 minutes.
Now add the garlic salt, black pepper, green onion, and the cooled garlic, mix and toss to incorporate all the ingredients for another 3 minutes.
Remove from the heat and serve hot on its own or as a side dish for your meal.
