Shrimp Fried Rice

My ultimate easy one-pot meal, fried rice.

The day I came to America for the first time, my cousin took me to a Chinese restaurant and ordered shrimp fried rice for me. I thought it was funny that my first meal in America was not a hamburger or a hotdog but a Chinese food! Since I was so used to eating short grain rice, Jasmin rice tasted weird; it felt like each grain of rice was dancing in my mouth. As time passes, I started to enjoy it and began to make it at home. As I posted last time, I like fried rice because it takes very little time to make and I can use whatever I have at home. Whenever I have leftover rice, I make all different kinds of fried rice.

People think fried rice has to be cooked at a very high heat, but cooking at too high a heat produces certain chemicals that can be harmful for health, so I recommend cooking at medium heat. Also don’t forget to use a high heating point oil like avocado oil. Changing one thing at a time can change our entire life!
