So I feel like every time I write I am apologizing for being MIA and at the risk of sounding like a broken record…I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting the blog lately. Summer school started last week and I am splitting my time between two summer internships and I am trying to get the main vendors booked for the wedding (more on that tomorrow). But I did ask for a main ingredient suggestion and I got quite a few requests for shrimp. I love seafood but I don’t cook it often because it is so expensive to get it fresh in Arizona and I don’t really like frozen shrimp.
I decided to bite the bullet for you guys and bought a package of frozen, raw, de-veined and de-tailed shrimp. I knew I wanted to make ‘fried’ rice and so I just threw this together (no recipe beforehand). It took about 15 minutes and made a ton of food. It also passed the ‘Fatkid’ test so that’s always a plus You could easily make this with whatever protein you want so feel free to sub chicken, tofu, steak, etc.
Super easy and plenty for left overs. I would recommend getting the raw shrimp so that when you cook it, it is the first time it is heated up – this keeps it from getting overcooked when you are putting it in a hot dish.
