Easy Better-Than-Takeout Shrimp Fried Rice

This recipe is, in a few words, SIMPLE and DELICIOUS! I didn’t have the time to cook the rice a day in advance, so I cooked it on the day I made the recipe, froze it for about twenty minutes, then proceeded with the rest of the recipe. It was an instant hit for us! To make things even better, it uses staple ingredients that we have on hand.



Easy Better-Than-Takeout Shrimp Fried Rice

This is an easy, one-skillet recipe that’s ready in 20 minutes and tastes better than takeout; it’s healthier and not greasy. To save time if you don’t have leftover rice on hand or don’t want to cook a batch, use two pouches of ready-to-serve rice. The shrimp is tender and juicy. I use fresh shrimp but you can use frozen shrimp that’s already been cooked. There’s garlic, ginger, green onions, sesame oil, and soy sauce for layers of flavor while peas, carrots, corn, and bits of egg add texture.
  
COOK TIME ABOUT 15 MINUTES
PREP TIME 5 MINUTES
TOTAL TIME ABOUT 20 MINUTES

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 pound medium-large fresh shrimp, cleaned (approximately 15-20 count shrimp)
  • 1 cup frozen peas and diced carrots blend (I don’t thaw and use straight from the freezer)
  • 1/2 cup corn (I use frozen straight from the freezer)
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, finely minced or pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups cooked rice (I use white, long-grain or brown may be substituted. To save time use two 8.8-ounce pouches cooked and ready-to-serve rice)
  • 2 to 3 green onions, trimmed and sliced into thin rounds
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

DIRECTIONS

  1. To a large non-stick skillet or wok, add the oils, shrimp, and cook over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes, flipping halfway through. Cooking time will vary based on size of shrimp, don’t overcook. Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon (allow oils and cooking juices to remain in skillet) and place shrimp on a plate; set aside.
