Shrimp Fried Rice

This is what I had the other night with my Shrimp Stir Fry.  I used brown rice, if the truth be told I like it better with white rice but ya know they say brown rice is better for you.  So guess the option would be up to you if you want to go healthy or not.

All you need is:
2 cups brown instant rice
1 3/4 cup water
2 TBL sesame oil
2-3 TBL soy sauce
3 eggs
3 green onions (you can use regular sweet onions but the green give it color)
oil for frying
*optional you could add peas and carrots if you like but I don't like them in my fried rice.

Cook the rice as per instructions
In skillet a heat oil add some onion cook for about 30-45 seconds.  Add beaten eggs and cook til firm, this picture shows them almost done.

Break up the egg so it looks like scrambled eggs, add the rest of the onion and then add the cooked rice.  Cook and stir for about a minute then add soy sauce, sesame oil and the cooked shrimp cook for about 2 or 3 minutes.
 Here it is ready to serve with the Shrimp Stir Fry.

Hope you try this one and add you own twist to it.  To me this is  a real comfort food.  Thanks for taking the time from you busy day to stop by.  Have a wonderful day and Remember to Find the Time to do ALL the things YOU love.

Ha! Ya' gotta have rice with stir fry :D. Brown rice is indeed much better for you so glad you made it with brown rice instead of white. Now I want Chinese food :(.

For sure it is better for you but there are times I would much rather have white. To me the brown at times has a nutty flavor.
Thanks for stopping by.
