Shrimp Fried Rice

This is the recipe we use to make shrimp fried rice at home.  The best part of the whole recipe is that it contains no msg.  To make the recipe more healthy, you could substitute the white rice for brown rice if desired.



Ingredients:
2 eggs, scrambled
1 shallot, chopped finely
1 medium onion, chopped finely
2 stalks of green onions, chopped
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
1 pound of shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup of carrots, chopped
1 cup of peas
4 cups of cooked rice (use day old cold cooked rice for best results)
1/2 cup of soy sauce
salt and black pepper to taste


Scramble two eggs in a skillet and set aside for later.


Chop the shallot, onion,  and green onion and throw in a pan.  Add the minced garlic and brown.  If the seasonings start to stick to the bottom of the pan, use a bit of water, about a half a cup, to deglaze the pan.


Add in the shrimp and let cook until the shrimp is thoroughly cooked.


Then, add in the carrots and peas, stirring occasionally.


Add in the cold cooked rice and the eggs.  Stir to mix all the ingredients together well.  If you have any clumps of rice, separate them by smashing them apart.


Add in the soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste.  Let cook more, stirring to cover the entire mixture with soy sauce.


When finished, it should look like this.  So yummy!


Hope you and yours have a safe and happy New Year!
