Shrimp Fried Rice

Ingredient list (all approximations - as is with all my cooking)

1. about 2 cups of cooked rice
2. 1 lb of pealed shrimp chopped
3. 1 chopped green pepper
4. 6 sliced button mushrooms
5. 1 cup of thawed/cooked frozen peas
6. 1 cup of canned sweet corn
7. 2 eggs scrambled
8. 2 cloves of garlic sliced
9. paprika, onion powder, salt.pepper, green onion
10. Sriracha (or other hot sauce)
11. chili oil/canola oil (3 tablespoons tops)


1. preprep all ingredients (peal/chop shrimp, cook peas, scramble eggs, make rice, etc)
2. season shrimp with salt.pepper, paprika, and hot sauce
3. heat pan with oil, garlic, salt, pepper
4. saute green peppers/mushrooms
5. add shrimp when mushrooms are no longer white
6. when shrimp is cooked add peas, corn, and scrambled egg
7. add the write rice in when pan is hot again, gently combine the ingredients
(tip: if rice is cold add some water and pop in microwave for 30 seconds)
8. add salt/pepper/hot sauce/chili oil to your liking & green onion as garnish

The veggies will render a cooking liquid as it cooks that the rice absorbs as its not really fried at all.

Serves 6

Try the curry version by adding curry powder in step 3. and 1/2 can of coconut milk in step 8.

and dont forget about tomorrow's lunch.
