Shrimp Fried Rice


Shrimp Fried Rice

1 cup white rice
2 cups water
1/2 bag of large shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt and pepper
olive oil (3-4 Tbsp)
small onion, diced
1-1/2 cup frozen vegetables, thawed (I used a bag that had green beans, corn, peas, and carrots)
3 eggs
1 Tbsp sesame seed
splash of toasted sesame oil
soy suace (to your liking)

Cook your rice a day before makng dish (trust me, if you do the rice when you are preparing the meal, it will turn out like mush).  On the day of cooking recipe, sprinkle shrimp with salt and pepper.  In a hot saucepan, heat olive oil in pan, add sprimp and cook about 2 minutes on one side,using spatula, flip and cook a couple of minutes on the other side.  When they are about completely cooked, remove onto plate. Add a tad more oil to pan and cook onions until tender (about 3-5 minutes), remove and also place on another plate.  Rinse pan and crack 3 eggs, and cook and scramble.  When cooked through, remove and place on plate.  Add a little olive oil and add rice and sesame seed until you hear it sizzling; stir.  Add soy sauce, sesame oil, vegetables, eggs, and shrimp; stir until incorporated.  Serve warm and with soy sauce.
