Shrimp Fried Rice - (새우 볶음밥)

There's so many ways to make shrimp fried rice and this is the way I do it. It tastes more Korean style in my opinion.

Things Needed:
  • 1 cup of chopped shrimp
  • 1/2 cup each of celery, carrots, onions and corn
  • 3-4 cups of cooked cold rice
  • sesame oil, soy sauce, minced garlic

It's strange being in the Midwest. The local grocery store didn't have any fresh shrimp! I had to buy the frozen kind. Anyhow wash and clean your shrimp.

I then like to chop my shrimps up into bite size pieces.

I just use frozen corn.

Most people use peas, but I HATE peas. If we were in LA, I would have used edaname beans but I just used celery instead. Chop up your veggies! Here I used carrots, celery and onions (about 1/2 cup each).

Heat a pan with 1 TB sesame oil and 1/2 TB minced garlic.

Add the shrimp to the pan and cook until just about done.

Remove the shrimp from the pan and set aside At this point, I like to squeeze a little lemon juice onto the shrimp and mix it around. The lemon juice helps get rid of the 'fishy-ness'. Afterwards, drain all the juices.

In a separate pan, scramble 2 egg whites and 1 yolk and set it aside.

Go back to the big pan and heat up 1 TB of oil.

Stir fry the chopped up vegetables until the carrots are nice and soft.

Then add the corn and mix together well.

Finally add the shrimp.

Then finally add about 3-4 cups of cold cooked rice.

Add the eggs and season it with about 1 TB of soy sauce, 1/2 TB of gook ganjang, and 1 TB of sesame oil. As always, adjust this part according to your own tastes. I tend make my food a little on the bland side.

Mix it around well....

And you're ready to serve!!!
