Shrimp Fried Rice
Disclosure: Today’s Shrimp Fried Rice is brought to you by Minute® Rice.
Between work, blogging, and family responsibilities by the end of the day I am EXHAUSTED. You know those days when you just want to order takeout and veg out on the couch?
I’m all too familiar with doing just that. However, with swimsuit season coming up I like to watch my calories and sodium which takeout is full of!
I decided to create my own healthier version of homemade shrimp fried rice using Minute® Rice.
This shrimp stir fry with rice comes together so quickly as shrimp takes no time at all to cook. In addition, the rice cooks in just 5 minutes! Make it go even faster by using leftover rice.
Looking for an even healthier version of easy shrimp fried rice with more fiber? Consider swapping out the white rice for Minute®Rice’s 100% Whole Wheat version instead.
