Shrimp fried rice

Anytime we have rice I’m happy to have leftovers.  They are easy to turn into a delicious fried rice dinner with pretty much anything else you have on hand or like.  We had some rice and I thought I’d make shrimp fried rice.  Here is what I did:

Shrimp fried rice

  • 2 TB sesame oil
  • 1 sweet onion minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2/3 pound shrimp, peeled, deveined and split lengthwise
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 TB low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup leftover rice
  • 1 red pepper minced
  • 3 scallions, minced

Heat sesame oil in a wok over medium heat.  Add onion and garlic and saute until golden.  Add shrimp and cook until shrimp are just turning opaque.  Add soy sauce and when bubbling, add eggs and stir as eggs set.  Add rice and stir well to combine and adjust with additional sauce as needed.  Spoon onto serving plates and top each serving with minced scallion.  Serve with a slice of lime and squeeze lime juice onto rice.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
