Ham and Shrimp Fried Rice


Ham and Shrimp Fried Rice

Fried rice truly is a Chinese food staple! Make this fried rice recipe using ham or shrimp instead of the traditional pork, chicken, or beef. Serve with your favorite Chinese dish!


  • Variations:   Use 2 teaspoons of salt or patis (fish sauce) instead of soy sauce for a "white" rice dish.  Include crushed garlic, yellow or green onions before adding rice.  You can throw almost any leftover in for a change.  This recipe makes at least 4 large servings as a side dish.
