On a lazy weekend, I don’t want to cook too much, but I still want to have something delicious and nutritious. Fried rice is a good choice for me. It contains fiber from vegetables, protein from meat or seafood, carbohydrates from rice, lipid from oil or butter. Everything needed is in one dish. Also, most of the ingredients I introduce here can be substituted with your favorite ingredients. Can’t wait to try it?
Let’s do it!
- 1 cup of cooked rice left at room temperature (this will prevent the rice sticking together when we fry)
- 200 gr shrimps (if you don’t have a scale at home, just use 4 big shrimps)
- 1/4 cup of chopped green bell peppers
- 1/4 cup of chopped carrots
- 1 beaten egg yolk
- 1 glove of chopped garlic
- Peel and chop shrimps into bite size.
- Marinate the shrimps with 1 tsp sugar, 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
- Add oil or butter to a hot pan
- Add chopped garlic to the pan and stir fry until it gets brown
- Add the shrimps and stir fry until the shrimps are cooked, put the shrimps aside.
- Blanch the chopped carrots and green bell peppers for 1 minutes then stir fry, put aside.
- Add a little bit of oil to the pan and stir fry the rice.
- Add the beaten egg yolk to the rice and mix until the rice is covered with the egg yolk (the rice will have a light yellow color)
- Add the shrimps and vegetables to the rice and mix (the heat is medium and still on)
- Add seasonings to taste
This dish is best when served warm.
Above is a simple recipe for fried rice. You can substitute the carrots and green bell peppers with vegetables that you want, but I recommend something not leafy because it will produce a lot of juice and make your fried rice soggy. You can also substitute shrimps with other meat or you can add more meat or seafood to the dish. It’s all up to you. So why don’t you start making your own signature fried rice today and surprise your family? They will surely love you and your dish.
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day and see you next time!
