This is the best fried rice ever and its done with things you find in your kitchen including leftovers, not to mention with the deliciously spicy Salsa Maya! Not to boast but seriously it does go on everything ;P
So we always have frozen shrimp in my house, but don't you worry if you don't, you can add any protein or leave it vegetarian! Also all the veggies you forgot to use that are about to go bad bring them out... I don't know about you but being Mexican, we always have left over rice. pssst also if you go out to Chinese restaurant there is always left over steamed rice that no one ate haha take it to go and make an even better fried rice then them.
Okay enough of the chatter, here is the recipe (obviously use what you have that's the point)
6 shrimp, peeled & deveined
1 carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
1 c. broccoli, ( I used frozen ) cut in small pieces
2 Chinese boxes of white rice or 2 cups of cooked white rice
4 Tbps Salsa Maya
soy sauce to taste
3 Tbps vegetable oil
Heat up a skillet to medium heat, add oil to pan and first put in your vegetable that takes longer to cook, in this case the carrots. Saute them for a minute and then add onions and saute for another minute, and so on with your other veggies. Add broccoli and saute until the vegetables are tender, about 4-5 minutes. Meanwhile cut the shrimp into small pieces. Move the vegetables towards the outside of the skillet to make a circle in the middle. Add more oil and add the shrimp and sprinkle salt, when they are almost cooked add the rice. Saute everything together for 3-4 minutes. Add the soy sauce, & SALSA MAYA. Stir until completely mixed. Cook for another 2-4 minutes and serve!
Literally takes about 15-20 minutes to make and it is ohhh sooo delicious
