Easy Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe - Family Fresh Meals

I’ve been a fan of fried rice for years. One thing I love is how easy it is to change up the dish by adding different veggies or meats. My standard recipe uses frozen peas and carrots straight out of the package (in a hot wok, they thaw and cook in no time), but you can also add broccoli, cabbage, celery, mushrooms, baby corn – whatever floats your boat. You can even use grated cauliflower in place of rice!

To see how easy it is, check out this Shrimp Fried Rice I just made. It’s has a few basic kitchen staples, paired with the delicate flavor of shrimp. It’s the perfect lighter meal for the springtime and summer!
