HomeCookin: Clean the fridge *sweet chili fried rice* w/ sesame shrimp, egg, peppers and boy choy.
So here we are again with a “let’s see what we can scavenge from the fridge” to create dinner…
What I had:
Large Brown Rice from chinese take-out
1/2 green pepper
1/2 large carrot
1 can baby corn
1 bok choy bunch
What I bought:
Fresh Shrimp ($3 for a small pack)
6 eggs ($3.49 and only used 2)
Peel and chop shrimp into bite size pieces and then marinate in a bowl with you favorite asian sauces. I used fish sauce, sriracha, sesame oil, sweet chili & oil - but you can use whatever you have.
Heat some oil in a wok or large fry pan. I should use something like peanut or canola oil but I use olive oil. Bad aussie.
Saute 2 cloves of diced garlic with some red pepper flakes. I added about 1 teaspoon.
Add the diced carrot and diced green pepper and saute until they soften.
Add the chopped baby corn and sliced bok choy and saute.
I then added a dash of sriacha, salt & pepper.
Put veggies in a bowl on side.
Add a little more oil, saute shrimp for a min until pink.
Add to veggies on side.
Add brown rice and quickly move around the hot wok and be sure it doesn’t start to burn and stick on the bottom.
Add the rice to the veggies & shrimp and stir through.
*In the wok pour in 2 lightly scrambled eggs and swirl around the wok until almost cooked through. Sprinkle with salt & a little Sriracha and then quickly add the fried rice mixture and toss through so the egg breaks up and covers the rice.
* season with lime juice & sauces to taste.
