Garlic Shrimp Fried Rice

Today I'm making a fragrant variation of one of my favorite fast dinners, fried rice. I'm adding garlic and shrimp to make this decadent dish. Whenever I cook rice, I always make a double batch so I can make fried rice the next day. This works best with day-old rice. Use the proportions that work for you. If you like to add more vegetables, do so. If you want to use less soy sauce, that works too. This dish is very customizable. I hope you enjoy today's bonus video.

Garlic Shrimp Fried Rice

1 Tbs sesame oil
3-4 cups of day-old rice
1 1/2 Tbs minced garlic
2 cups mixed vegetables (steamed, and no longer frozen)
3 Tbs soy sauce to taste
2 eggs, scrambled
1 cup cooked shrimp
sriracha sauce, cilantro, green onions and avocado to garnish.

Heat sesame oil in a wok or frying pan on medium high heat. Add garlic, cook for one minute. Add rice and cook for a few minutes until the sesame and garlic are fragrant. Add your mixed vegetables and soy sauce to taste (I like to use about 3 Tbs) cook for 2 minutes. Mix in two eggs that you have beaten together with a fork. Lastly add the cooked shrimp. Cook for 2 more minutes. Please note, that over cooking the shrimp will make them rubbery. Remove from heat, being sure to scrape the pan to include the crispy parts when you serve. Garnish with sriracha sauce, cilantro, green onions and avocado.
