  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 pound shrimp (medium-large fresh, cleaned, approximately 15-20 count shrimp)
  • 1 cup frozen peas (and diced carrots blend, I don’t thaw and use straight from the freezer)
  • 1/2 cup corn (I use frozen straight from the freezer)
  • 3 garlic cloves (finely minced or pressed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 large eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 4 cups cooked rice ( , I use white, long-grain or brown may be substituted. To save time use two 8.8-ounce pouches cooked and ready-to-serve rice)
  • 3 green onions (trimmed and sliced into thin rounds)
  • 4 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)

    It was delicious but missing something. I’m thinking subsituting the canola oil with more sesame oil, adding water chestnuts and snow peas should be a must. I’ll definitely give it another go with some alterations.

    Followed instructions and rice did not come out fried whatsoever. Ended up adding 2 Tbsp of Oil and that did help either. Tasted good, just wasnt fried rice.
