Shrimp Fried Rice

This was great! My husband, who is not a fan of Chinese, really liked this dish. I'm making it with less soy next time, but it went over great!

What's Needed:
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil or vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
2 C. cooked brown rice
1 C. frozen carrots, chopped small
1 C. frozen peas, thawed
1 C. onion, chopped small
12 oz. bag of frozen, pre-cooked, pre-deveined shrimp--thawed
2 T. soy sauce

1. In a small bowl, combine eggs and 1 tsp. soy sauce.

2. Pour sesame oil into large skillet. Preheat over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and garlic; stir gently to scramble. When set, remove egg mixture from skillet and cut up any large pieces.

3. Pour cooking oil into the skillet. Return to medium-high heat. STir-fry onion in hot oil for 1 minute, or until onions are crisp-tender.

4. Add cooked rice, carrot, peas, and shrimp. Sprinkle with 2 T. soy sauce. Cook and stir for 4-6 minutes or until heated through. Add cooked egg mixture. Cook and stir for about 1 minute more or until heated through.

Makes 4 servings (about 1 1/4 C.)
