I love an easy recipe with easy clean-up that gives me a chance to use leftover rice in the fridge. This is an easy recipe that will only take you minutes. This dish is full of flavor and simple to make with ingredients that are easily found in your kitchen.
Easy Shrimp Fried Rice
large cooked shrimp thawed
1 lb bag of frozen vegetables
1 medium onion diced
red bell pepper diced
green bell pepper diced
red pepper flakes (if desired)
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground garlic
4 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 cups cooked rice
1 cup water
Heat oil in a large non-stick pan on med-high. Once oil is hot, add diced peppers and onions. Cook until fragrant.
Add cooked rice. No cooked rice, no problem. Just add 1½ cups of uncooked rice to the pan and stir fry until it turns white or opaque.
Next add spices, soy sauce and stir.
Now toss the vegetables into the pan and cover the rice with water. The rice needs to be tender to the tooth so be sure to add more water to the rice that was stir fried. Rice prepared this way requires a 1:1 ratio of rice to water. Cover and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
Lastly add the cooked shrimp and a tablespoon or so more water to prevent the rice from sticking at the bottom and stir the shrimp into the mix. Cover again and allow to cook for 5 to 7 minutes.
Remove from heat and now you are done.
So in about 20 minutes you have an easy shrimp fried rice that you and your family will enjoy. This recipe is great because the flavor will change based on the vegetables that you use and the amount of seasonings that you can use so it will never get old
