Shrimp Fried Rice


This is my healthy version of fried rice. I like to add shrimp or salmon, but it can be made with just vegetables. You can add any veggies you like, the more, the merrier! Peas or pea pods would be nice and water chestnuts are fabulous!

I usually serve this as a main course with a nice Asian sauce on the side and a big green salad.

It's best if the rice is cooked ahead of time and cooled, this way it doesn't stick together and it makes cooking this recipe a lot quicker an easier.

I use *Braggs Liquid Aminos instead of regular soy sauce, you can also use Nama Shoyu or Tamari, but I just found out about a better alternative; Coconut Aminos and I will be buying it next time I go to the store. Click here for a review of these different soy condiments and their pros & cons.

Serves 4
Rice:

4 cups cooked long grain brown rice
10- 15 Large shrimp
3 large eggs
2 large onions
3 scallions sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 carrots shredded or diced
1 red bell pepper diced
Coconut oil spray or olive oil
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
Add some Seasoning - I use 3 tablespoons of Italian seasoning, 2 teaspoons each of granulated garlic and onion powder and a few grinds of black pepper.

In a wok or large pot on med-high heat, sauté the onions in oil for about two minutes add one cup of rice of, stir continuously. Add all of your vegetables; mushrooms, scallions, peppers and carrots, keep stirring making sure everything is getting evenly brown, add another cup of rice and more oil if needed. Gradually add in the rest of the rice, once thoroughly mixed, you can lower the heat a bit and let it brown while you make the sauce.

Sauce:

3/4 Cup *Braggs Liquid Aminos or your soy sauce of choice
2 tablespoons of fresh minced ginger
2 tablespoons of fresh minced garlic
4 tablespoons of raw honey

Combine all the ingredients in the blender and process until mixed well.

Now back to the rice. In a separate bowl, scramble your eggs together with about 2 tablespoons of the sauce. Make a hole in the middle of your rice, add a touch more oil, and add the egg mixture.  Once the eggs begin to solidify, give them a quick turn or two and then incorporate them into the rice.

Serve in a big bowl, drizzle a little more sauce on top and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve the remaining sauce on the side.
You did it! Yay Rice! This is much healthier and cheaper than the restaurant stuff.

Here is a pretty koi painting to look at while your eat your rice. The original is sold, but I can paint one just for you, I have posters available too. Details are here at my shop.
