Shrimp Fried Rice
My favorite quick dinner recipe- shrimp fried rice with crisp veggies.
2-3 tablespoons light olive oil or organic safflower
A dash of chili or sesame oil
A spoonful of curry paste, curry powder, cumin, chili, ginger, turmeric- your choice
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 yellow summer squash, sliced into matchsticks
1 green zucchini squash, sliced into matchsticks
1 medium red bell pepper, cored and seeded, sliced thin
1 half a bag of cole slaw mix- about 2 heaping cups shredded cabbage with carrot
a handful of frozen corn or baby peas, thawed
2 and 1/2 to 3 cups cooked long grain organic brown rice or brown basmati rice
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
20 frozen medium shrimp, thawed, tails removed, if you like
A dash or two of your favorite chili sauce
Heat the oils in a wok or a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the spices and chopped garlic into the oil and cook for about a minute, to infuse the oil with flavor.
