Shrimp Fried Rice with Snow Peas
All in one pan including the rice!
You probably have noticed that I’ve posted a couple of Shrimp Fried Rice recipes before but never with snow peas. Snow peas can go great with just about any meat or fish but especially shrimp…..
……If you are using frozen shrimp put them in a bowl of cold water and they will be thawed out by the time the rice is done. Put a large sauté pan on at medium high. Add the water, the salt and the minute rice. Or, regular rice if you want. For meals like this I’ve settled on brown minute rice.
Stir it and bring it to a fast simmer. Lower the heat to the point that it maintains a simmer and cover with a lid. Follow the instructions on the box for the best cooking time for the rice that you are using. Check to see if any more water is needed at about 3 minutes short of the prescribed cooking time. If so just enough to bring the surface of the liquid even with the top of the rice.
While the rice is cooking chop up the onion and garlic. Whisk up the egg – or eggs – and have the snow peas standing by.
When the rice is done remove it from the pan to a bowl and drizzle the egg into the rice while you slowly stir the rice.
Raise the heat on the pan to medium high and add just enough olive oil to cover the bottom. Put in the onions, garlic and shrimp.
Spread the shrimp out so they are all lying flat and give them about a minute and a half a side. Add the snow peas to the pan and stir a couple of times as they warm up. That’s about all that you want to do is warm them up. Then put the rice in and add the soy sauce. Stir it all together and stir a few more times as the rice gets heated back up.
When it is all heated up serve up your Shrimp Fried Rice with Snow Peas.
You just made it better than take out. You’re GOOD!!
