Cooking Fried Rice with Broccoli and Shrimps

Cooking fried rice is the answer to our left-over rice. I would normally stir-fry rice with garlic; and add a pinch of salt to taste. On other occasions however, I do an extended version of cooking fried rice. It's one with broccoli and shrimps.

Read on to get my personal fried rice recipe.

Don't you worry if you have left-over rice from the other day. You can always cook fried rice with those. This recipe I'm sharing with you is not a well-known yang chow recipe. Rather, this one's Thai-inspired which I often see being cooked in the streets of Bangkok (minus the spice). All you need are a little bit of the ingredients below.

Ingredients in cooking fried rice with broccoli and shrimps:
- left-over rice

You'll know the shrimps are cooked when they change to the shade of orange.

5. Season the dish with fish sauce.
6. Add in the flavored rice. Mix well.
To avoid a too oily fried rice, scoop off the excess oil (if any) from the pan before adding the rice.

7. Crack open the egg unto the rice dish. Stir well under high heat.
8. When the egg is cooked, turn off the heat.
9. Season the dish with fish sauce and pepper, as desired.
10. Serve hot with any viand.
