    Super easy! Didn’t come out spicy, so would add more spice if you’re going for that. Would’ve like more veggies. Instead of sautéing the white scallion I vinegarized them by putting them in white vinegar and a bit of salt. Was a nice added flavor

    The spicy shrimp fried rice was delicious! Easy to follow recipe. Prep and cooking time was about 30 minutes. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

    There were no exact measurements on the spices and it came out pretty spicy but ot was still pretty tasty next time we make this we will adjust the spices.

    Pretty easy to make and a good taste. I will make again with maybe a couple of minor modifications.

    Delicious! I added regular sesame, added ginger.,lime and cilantro. I was very light handed with spices and fish sauce. Next time I will add broccoli and peas and carrots, maybe some brown sugar to balance. A great recipe to make your own.

    This was a quick and delicious shrimp fried rice . I prepped everything in the morning before work so it was ready to throw in the pan when I got home . Dinner that night took 15 min to make and my husband loved it !

    I added some garden mix veggies and also fresh onions. Substituted left over Thai peanut butter chicken (recipe I got from Yummly). Added an extra scrambled egg and just used 2 1/2 cups of rice. Came out perfect.

    I'm a Ngerian and we love spicy food a lot. This is one of my family's favorite. My husband and Harold my son craves for it often. I always add steamed broccoli florets to mine because that's my children's best veg.

    Didn't use shrimp in it this time but will next. Turned out a little salty but otherwise delicious!!

    I just made this and it was so good. I made a few adjustments since it was just me and it was difficult to measure the spices accurately. I also made it with cauliflower rice instead of actual rice. But this is definitely a new favorite and I plan to make this regularly.
