Rice with Shrimp, Scrambled Eggs, and Scallions
Servings: 4 Yield: 6 1/2 cups Start to Finish 25 mins


  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 4 cups leftover white rice
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce mixed with 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Make It

1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat until almost smoking. Add the garlic and cook for about 10 to 15 seconds or until fragrant but not coloring.

2. Add the eggs and, using a wooden spoon, cook stirring constantly until curds begin to form, about 30 to 60 seconds.

3. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and add the shrimp. Stir-fry for 2 minutes or until they just turn pink. Add the rice and green onions to the pan and stir-fry for 2 minutes more or until the rice is heated through. Use the spoon to break up any clumps of rice and add the soy sauce-water mixture and toss to combine well. Scrape up any of the brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pan and serve immediately garnished with the cilantro.
