Shrimp fried rice...

SSN686SSN686 Posts: 3,268

Morning All:

Sticking with the no-meat Friday during Lent plan...all the ingredients ready to go...rice, carrots, onions, peas, sesame seeds, shrimp, eggs, cashews, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, roasted garlic, bacon grease (some of the items are in the jars)…

cooked the shrimp first in a mixture of soy, hoisin & honey...then the veggies & eggs, then the rice & add everything together topped with the sesame seeds...almost done...

My bowl about to be consumed...

Good eating in this neighborhood...only "problem" was that it started raining just as I was starting to cook so I ended up quite damp (would have been worse if Kathy hadn't held an umbrella over me for most to the time)...but still totally worth it for the meal!

Have a GREAT day!

    Morning @FlyOverCountry

    I'm not a vegan so I don't care...didn't hear anything as they were in the pan, but then I wasn't listening either 😉

    Have a GREAT day!

    Kudos to any band that fit the word "septuagenarian" into a pop song, AND get a hit!

    (and thank you Apple Spellchecker, didn't know it had a "u" in it...) (it's not old without "u")

    I made the above post from memory, without listening to the video. I had forgotten what a GREAT track that was! The whole album was great (I own it) and my band at the time did it for a short time; great, great f*n tune!

    I love the flavor of roasted garlic in this type of thing. Take it just a bit further and try burnt garlic fried rice.

  • That really looks good I'll have to try it, even on good Friday LOL

    Nice job!

    Honestly, for this sorta thing, the Blackstone griddle wins. The rice actually gets fried a bit and tastes so good.

    After the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) just released the list of predator priests, I decided not to eat fish on Fridays. Been eating fish for 63 years on Fridays during Lent. It’s now my “eat beef” day!.
