ShrimpFriedRice

This Chinese New Year try homemade not takeout!

This is a dinner you can literally whip it up in minutes. If you keep leftover rice in the fridge and shrimp in the freezer, you can always substitute in whatever vegetables you have on hand. Make sure you stock soy sauce and sesame oil (the sesame oil is what gives it that Chinese Fried Rice smell and taste).”  – Elizabeth
