Instructions to Make Shrimp Fried Rice

  1. In a wok or a large and deep sauté pan, warm the 3 tbsp of olive oil.

  2. Once the olive oil is warmed, add 1 tbsp of crushed fresh garlic. 

  3. As the garlic begins to sizzle, add ½ a cup of diced sweet onions. Sauté the garlic and sweet onions for about 1 minute but do not allow the garlic brown.

  4. Add 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots. Stir and sauté the ingredients for about 1 minute. 

  5. Add 1 tablespoon of grated fresh ginger. Stir and sauté pan contents for 2 minutes.

  9. Add 3 cups of cooked rice, 2 chopped stalks of scallions, and 3 tbsp of soy sauce to the pan. Sauté while stirring for about 2 minutes. 

  10. Remove the pan from the heat and garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy!
