Thai Shrimp Fried Rice

I recently created a recipes section on this website because I am a huge foodie and I thought, why not share with you guys? Last night I decided to venture into a territory that I usually don’t  mess with. I made Thai Shrimp Fried Rice.

I can count on one hand how many times I have attempted this. The first time I did, I made rice soup with vegetables for the whole family. It was not a pretty sight. For some reason, it used to seem a lot harder than it did last night and I think I have it figured out. I also made my hot and sour prawn soup to go along with it,

Now, do not get me wrong, I am a great cook and many folks can attest to this. Yes,  I know, I know, they might not be telling the truth. Okay, I got it. Do you want to find out if I know my way around the kitchen? Well, here is your chance. First, let’s get our ingredients together.

Thai Shrimp Fried Rice Ingredients

Add soy sauce and fish sauce and continue stirring for another 2 minutes. Add eggs and shrimps to the mix and adjust for salt. If needed, add more soy sauce. You are done!

Cooking Tip: Use leftover rice from the day before. It makes better-fried rice.
