Shrimp Fried Rice

Toss your takeout menu and whip this easy, veggie-packed meal up in minutes.

I had learned how to make fried rice when I was younger. It would have been the perfect fast-cook meal when I was in college, a welcome change from ramen noodles. Unfortunately, I didn’t learn how to make it until a few years ago. It’s a shame too, because fried rice is one of the easiest, cheapest and tastiest meals you can make at home. All you need is leftover rice, eggs and vegetables. ShrimpFriedRice_header
You can use any combination of vegetables you like, so long as you chop them into bite-sized pieces. I used broccoli, carrots and snow peas in this recipe. You can also just use a frozen bag of mixed vegetables or stir fry vegetables. 

To make this fried rice stand out, I add a pound of shrimp. They dress up the dish nicely, in addition to upping the protein. For even more protein, and lots of flavor, I add scrambled eggs cooked in sesame seed oil. These two ingredients combined make this an irresistible dish that’s on the table in minutes.
