THE INGREDIENTS LIST:
– 1 Cup.Of cooked and cooled white rice (preferably day-old rice).
– 1/2 pound of medium-sized shrimp, peeled and deveined.
– 2 eggs, lightly beaten.
– 1 Cup.Of mixed vegetables.
– 3 cloves of garlic, minced.
– 1 small onion, finely chopped.
– 3 Tbsp.Of vegetable oil.
– 2 Tbsp.Of soy sauce.
– 1 Tbsp.Of oyster sauce.
– 1 Tsp.Of sesame oil.
– Salt and pepper to taste.
– Chopped green onions for garnish.
– Optional: chopped cilantro for extra freshness
Make sure the rice has been prepared and chilled beforehand. Rice from the previous day works best because it is drier and less likely to become soggy when fried. If using thawed shrimp, thaw them and dry them with paper towels to remove excess moisture. Prepare the vegetables, garlic, and onion for cooking by chopping them.
Add one tablespoon of vegetable oil to a large skillet or wok that has been heated over medium-high heat and oiled with one tablespoon of oil. Add the shrimp to the skillet and sauté for two to three minutes per side, or until opaque and pink.
If necessary, add a touch more oil to the pan before adding the whisked eggs. Allow the eggs to simmer for about a minute, then use a spatula to gently agitate them until they are thoroughly cooked but still moist. Remove the scrambled eggs from the pan and set them and the prepared prawns aside.
Add the remaining oil to the pan and sauté the garlic and onion until aromatic and translucent. Cook the mixed vegetables for a few minutes, stirring frequently, until they begin to tender.
Place the chilled rice on the opposite side of the skillet from the vegetables. Pour the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil over the rice and stir to uniformly moisten it with each ingredient. And progressively incorporate the prepared prawns, scrambling eggs, and sautéed vegetables.
According to your flavor preferences, season the fried rice with salt and pepper. Stir-fry the entire mixture for a few more minutes, or until all of the ingredients are thoroughly combined and heated through.
Once the Shrimp Fried Rice has been heated sufficiently, remove the pan from the heat. Freshen the dish with chopped green scallions and minced cilantro, if desired. And serve the delectable Shrimp Fried Rice as a satisfying main dish or a delightful side dish while it is still hot. It is ideal for weeknight dinners, gatherings, or simply savoring a comforting meal.
