Shrimp fried rice is a great dish for nights when you're looking for a quick way to use up leftovers in your fridge. Feel free to experiment with using fresh mushrooms or other vegetables to place of the peas, and roast chicken or ham if you don't have fresh shrimps. This fried rice is sure to please everyone in the family. Yum!!Ingredients:
3 cups of cooked rice
1 cup of fresh shrimps – clean and deveined
½ cup of fresh peas
2 cloves of garlic - chopped
2 shallots – finely slice
1 tbsp of oyster sauce
3 tbsp of soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Heat up wok on high heat and add some oil. Put in shallots and garlic and stir fry until fragrant and lightly brown.
2. Add in the shrimp, stir fry until shrimp changes color, then add in the peas and mix well. Stir fry for a minute and then push all the meat and vegetables to the side of the wok and then add in the beaten eggs. Scramble the eggs until half cook.
3. Add in the rice and all the seasoning. Continue the stir fry for 3 minutes until everything well mixed. Check seasoning, dish out and serve warm.
Note: Since I have a bit of roast meat left in the fridge, I added it to the rice too.
