Shrimp Fried Rice

Martha has a recipe for shrimp fried rice in Feb Living. I love fried rice, and I like to make it myself so that I know exactly what’s in it! I was excited to try this recipe, but had to make some substitutions. I couldn’t find any lemongrass, which was crushing to me. I also didn’t have any shitakes. So I used baby bella mushrooms and added some baby bok choy. This, in addition to the shrimp, scrambled eggs, garlic, ginger, snow peas, soy sauce (I used tamari) and scallions was a wonderful one dish meal.

This was delicious. Martha says to use only day old rice, but I made my rice fresh, then cooked it in the pan for about 10 minutes to dry it and get it a little crunchy. It worked quite well.

    It certainly looks delicious. I can’t eat snowpeas (allergic) so I’d have to sub something else. But I like the look of that.

    This sounds delish – and has all of my favorite things in it. A must-try for me~
