I like recipes that are quick and easy.
It’s one of the reasons why I love fried rice.
I can pretty much guarantee that I always have the main ingredients for shrimp fried rice already in my refrigerator and cupboard.
- Bell Pepper
- Shrimp (frozen)
- Tamari or Shoyu
And, those ingredients change all the time, depending on what I have on hand.
If I have frozen peas, I’ll throw those in.
If I have broccoli, that goes in as well.
Celery often makes it to the frying pan, and mushrooms, too.
There are so many variations. Use what you have.
Try my simple shrimp fried rice and let me know if you like it as much as I do.
