Cantonese Fried Rice

I served this tonight with the Honey & Five-Spice Chicken Legs. It was very yummy, although I used a bit more rice & should’ve used a little less soy sauce.

  • 4oz raw Shrimp – peeled & deveined(I used pre-cooked & added them near the end)
  • 4 tbsp Peanut Oil
  • 1 Onion – chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic – minced
  • 1 Carrot – peeled & diced
  • 1/2 cup Peas – thawed if frozen
  • 2 medium Eggs – beaten with a pinch of salt
  • 2 1/4 cups Rice – day old
  • 3-4 Spring Onions – chopped
  • 2 tbsp Light Soy Sauce (check gluten-free if needed)

Heat half the oil over medium-high heat in a wok. Add the onion, garlic, carrot & a pinch of salt & pepper. Stir fry for about 2-3 minutes, until the vegetables begin to soften

If using raw shrimp, add the shrimp & peas & stir fry until the shrimp begins to turn pink. Push the vegetables to one side of the wok & pour the eggs on the other side, stirring to scramble them. When the eggs are almost set, stir all the ingredients together

Add the rice, spring onions & if you are using it, pre-cooked shrimp. Season with soy sauce & stir fry for 3-4 minutes, until the rice is hot
