Shrimp Fried Rice

A quintessential Asian comfort food, our version of the recipe includes succulent shrimp. Fried rice is so versatile in itself, that many have adapted it to each its own way of cooking, and is the best way to utilize leftovers in your fridge. Though its exact origins are unknown, some say that the first plate of fried rice originated in the city of Yangzhou, east of Jiangsu, during the Sui dynasty (589 – 618 AD).
If you’re looking for a quick fix to a hungry belly, our recipe keeps it simple with just 10 ingredients that you can easily find in your kitchen or pantry.
