Quick n Healthy Shrimp Fried Recipe

Quick n Healthy Shrimp Fried Recipe 

Shrimp Fried Rice is one of my favorite 20-minute recipes, and my family devours it. Shrimp and rice with vegetables and an egg is a protein-rich and quick supper. Fried rice is the most delicious way to use up leftover cooked rice.

You’ll never order takeout again after this 20-minute one-skillet meal!! Homemade tastes SO MUCH BETTER!! Tons of taste, non-greasy, and stuffed with delicious shrimp!!

This is a simple one-skillet recipe that takes only 20 minutes to prepare and tastes better than takeout.

It’s healthier, less oily, and you’ll adore it.

Layers of flavor are provided by garlic, ginger, green onions, sesame oil, and soy sauce, while peas, carrots, corn, and egg bits give texture. It’s a great weekday dish if you’re in a hurry and want to change up your normal chicken dinner.

How to Make the Best Shrimp Fried Rice

If you don’t have leftover rice or don’t want to prepare a batch, use two pouches of ready-to-serve rice to save time. It works perfectly! I skip freezing the frozen peas, carrots, and corn that are put with the rice.

Add edamame, bean sprouts, mushrooms, or anything else floats your fried rice boat.

I like fresh shrimp from the butcher since I believe it has the finest flavor, although frozen shrimp would suffice..

If you’re in a hurry, you can use frozen shrimp that have already been cooked and only need to be thawed.
