Shrimp Fried Rice

I tried to add as many vegetables as possible without overwhelming the dish. I also cooked my rice and shrimp the night before. By doing that this came together in 10 minutes.

I love things spicy but not my fried rice. You could add Sriracha or red chili paste to take it up a notch.

12-14 large shrimp or you could use more smaller ones.

2 cups of cooked white rice-day old rice works best

2 tablespoons of Vegetable or avocado oil

1/2 zucchini- diced into small pieces

1/2 red pepper- diced into small pieces

2 cloves of garlic-minced

2 eggs whisked with a tablespoon of water

1/4 cup of soy sauce- eyeball it you may need more

3 dashes of sesame oil

I also added a tablespoon of teriyaki stir fry sauce as I’m trying to use it up but this is optional

Sriracha and red chili paste are also an option to make it spicy- just add when I say to add other sauces

1/3 cup of frozen peas

3 scallions- diced


Heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium to high heat in a wok or large frying pan. Meanwhile cook rice according to package.

Add shrimp and cook 3-4 minutes then remove to a plate. Add more oil and cook zucchini and peppers for 2 minutes add garlic and cook for another minute. Remove to plate.

Add a little more oil then add beaten eggs. Constantly stir for 30 seconds. Add rice, sauces, shrimp, cooked vegetables and peas to the pan. Mix all together. Top with diced scallions.
