I love Chinese take-out. It is one of my favorite Saturday night dinners. We have our favorite spot and everyone has their favorite dish. Some nights I crave the flavors, but have no interest in the expense or the trek to go and pick it up. On these days, I make simple Shrimp Fried rice and fulfill my craving without venturing out of my home.
Things to know about this recipe:
You do not have to use Shrimp. Substitute your favorite protein as you see fit. You can even use leftover chicken from the day before.
White rice or brown rice will do. I cook mine in a rice cooker while I am prepping and preparing the rest of the meal.
Feel free to add more veggies! I list some of my favorites in the notes section of the recipe, but the options are only limited by your tastes and imagination.
If salt is not your thing, use low sodium soy sauce. Personally, it is the only kind I use.
Sometimes we feast on piles of fried rice and call it a day. Other days we add pot stickers or fried won tons on the side as an accompaniment. Check out the video below to see how simple and quick this recipe comes to fruition. Happy Cooking!
