Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or canola oil
  • 1 pound shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen veggie blend I used peas and carrots
  • 1 cup frozen sweet corn
  • 1/2 cup green onions chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
  • 3 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 4 cups cooked rice white or brown rice
  • 4 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

Instructions

  1. Place a large non-stick skillet or wok over medium-high heat, add vegetable oil and once simmering add shrimp and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
  2. Remove the shrimp and place on a plate, set aside.
  3. To the same skillet, add sesame oil and once hot add minced garlic and minced ginger, cook stirring for 30 seconds.
  4. Next, add the veggies: peas, carrots, corn, green onions, and cook stirring for about 2-3 minutes, until they begin to soften.
  5. Push everything to one side of the skillet, and add the lightly beaten eggs to the other side. Stir to scramble, and cook the eggs. Once cooked combine with the veggies.
