Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe

One of the most popular and delicious Chinese recipes is shrimp fried rice. In the past, I have posted a couple fried rice recipes – egg fried rice and chicken fried rice. In these articles, I have shared various tips on how to make delicious fried rice. In this article, I will share a few more. A key ingredient to fried rice is a fish sauce or oyster sauce. These items can be easily found in the Asian section of your local grocery store or super Wal-Mart. The most important tips to making great fried rice are using leftover rice that is at least one day old. Also, fried rice is something that you want to adjust the ingredients to your taste. I prefer a lot of garlic and soy sauce in mine. Instead of adding the egg to the pan with the rice, I usually cook and scramble it in a separate pan. With a little practice and these tips, you will be making amazing fried rice in no time. Enjoy.

I'm Chinese and am ashamed to say I've never made fried rice. I was craving fried rice last year and saw your recipe and tried it! SO EASY! I should have tried this years ago.. I guess I was remembering the way my mom use to make it and how much time it took for her to prep all the veggies. It's great being able to use frozen peas, carrots and corn. This was absolutely delicious, I've made it twice already. After the first time, hubby was begging for more except he wanted me to use SPAM instead of shrimp. It was good! I have this recipe saved on my favorite page and am itching to make it again soon. Thanks for sharing.
