Hi everyone, its Natasha of Natashaskitchen.com and this is the first video in our new kitchen. We’re making the easiest shrimp fried rice. This is a family favorite and it’s perfect for a busy weeknight. This recipe moves fast so you’ll want to have everything prepped and ready to go. In a medium bowl combine 1 pound of raw shrimp with 1 TSP of corn starch, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and a quarter teaspoon of black pepper. Stir it together and set it aside. Now in a small bowl beat together four large eggs and then finely chop 1/4 cup of fresh green onion. Place a large nonstick pan or a wok over medium-high heat. When a bead of water sizzles and evaporates, swirl in 2 Tbsp of cooking oil. Transfer shrimp to the hot skillet and spread them out in a single layer. Cook about 1 minute per side or just until cooked through and no longer opaque, then remove them to a bowl. In the same pan cook the beaten eggs, breaking them up with your spatula and cooking just until no longer runny. Then transfer them to a bowl, wipe the skillet clean with a dry paper towel. Then add another Tbsp of oil and the green onions and cook until the onions are fragrant, about 30 seconds. Now you’ll need five cups of cold, leftover, white rice. Quickly stir the rice with the onion then spread it evenly over the pan and cook one to two minutes without touching it. Stir the rice once and let it sauté another 1 to 2 minutes. You should hear the rice sizzling. Drizzle in two Tbsp of soy sauce and stir well to combine. Add one and a half tsp of sesame oil and don’t skip it. Sesame oil gives stir fry authentic flavor and aroma. Add 12 ounces of thawed carrots and peas then return your shrimp and your eggs back to the pan. Then stir everything to combine. Now try your stir-fry and add more soy sauce to taste. I usually add another half a tablespoon, to a tablespoon of soy sauce. Stir everything to combine and take it off the heat. Oh yes! All right, it is time for the taste test and I cannot wait. And I can’t believe how fast this came together. This is such an easy meal and perfect for busy weeknights and it also makes a great meal planning option because it reheats really well. Ok, here we go. And lots of shrimp for me.
