Shrimp Fried Rice

I know... another fried rice recipe! I just have too much left over rice in the fridge and nobody likes the taste of dried up rice. This is a super simple, super clean (what does that even mean?) dinner plan after some heavy brunching on pumpkin spice pancakes.

Which reminds me that I went to Kroger this weekend and they had RUN OUT of canned pumpkin. I was soooo looking forward to some pumpkin laden recipes this week. So heart broken :(

Shrimp Fried Rice

Makes 4 servings

1/2 onion diced
2 tsp garlic
1 bell pepper diced (or about 5 mini peppers)
6 large shrimp, chopped
3-4 cups rice, day old (I used a mix of white and 7-grain rice)
2 eggs
2 stalks green onion
Salt, pepper

  • Fry shrimp first in a little bit of oil, add salt and pepper
  • Set aside in a  bowl and fry up the diced onions, garlic, also seasoning as you wish
  • Once the onions have sweated for 1 minute, add the rice and loosen it with a spatula (Always use cold rice so that your fried rice is fluffy!)
  • Add in the diced pepper, saute until slightly soft. Now displace the rice and veggies to one side of the pan
  • Crack your eggs in the empty space, scramble up the yolk and once it is cooked into pieces (30 seconds), mix it up with the rice
  • Put the cooked shrimp back into the pan and add chopped green onions
  • Cook until heated through (1 minute) and serve
