Who doesn't love One Pan Dinners? They are easy to throw together, delightfully delicious and clean up is a snap. Perfect for a Friday night.....Let the weekend begin!!
One of my favorite ways to create One Pan Meals is in my wok. I love making stir fry. They are quick, easy and great way to use up whatever ingredients are on hand. You can use any vegetables, any meat and serve it with rice or noodles or just as is with some sweet dinner rolls.
Today, I am using up some rice that was leftover from a meal earlier in the week. When making fried rice, you want to start with rice that is at least a day old. I wanted to make this meal even simpler so I used a package of frozen mixed vegetables instead of chopping up a mixture of fresh. I had dinner on the table in less than half an hour. Now that is the way to start a weekend!
Shrimp Fried Rice
12 oz. large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 T. peanut oil
4 scallions, white and light green, sliced
1 1/2 t. garlic paste
1 t. ginger paste
2 c. leftover rice, chilled
3 T. low sodium soy sauce
2 eggs, beaten
1 (4 serving) package frozen mixed vegetables
Place 1 T. of oil in the bottom of a wok placed over med high heat. When oil shimmers, add the shrimp. Cook and stir until the shrimp turn pink. Remove to a plate and set aside.
Add the remaining oil to the wok with the scallions, garlic and ginger. Cook and stir until fragrant about 30 seconds. Add the rice and stir to coat. Cook for a minute or two until rice starts to crisp. Stir in the soy sauce and cook, stirring until absorbed. Push the rice to the side and add the eggs to the wok. Scramble the eggs, incorporating the rice into the mixture, until eggs are set. Add the frozen vegetables and reserved shrimp. Cook and stir until warmed throughout. Print Recipe
