Shrimp Fried Rice

What makes this fried rice Thai style?

  1. Less greasy than the regular takeout fried rice.
  2. Though this fried rice tastes great on its own, it is served with a condiment that takes it to another level. That condiment is called “Nampla Prik”. The combination of a little bit of fish sauce, fresh lime juice, minced garlic, and Thai chilies drizzling on this fried rice and the seafood gives a little kick and more flavorful!

Recipe Tips

  1. Make sure your wok, pan, or skillet is very hot just like you are then coat it with hot vegetable oil all over so that the rice and other stuff won’t stick the wok easily.
  2. Use cold left over rice so that it won’t get mushy. However, if you only have hot rice on hand, spread the rice thinly on a baking sheet to let the steam out while preparing other ingredients.
  3. The veggies and be fresh or frozen. It doesn’t matter. It will cook quickly in a short time making this fast food not junk food!
  4. Pouring the sauce from the side of the wok will help it to heat up before reaching other ingredients increasing the “Wok Hei” or the wok aroma for the food. If you are like me, sometimes tripping while cooking or simply forget about this tip. It’s ok. Your food is still going to be delicious.

Now let’s get to the recipe and watch the video to see how I make it.
