Shrimp Fried Rice – Loaded with shrimp, this Fried Rice is made with fragrant Basmati Rice and vegetables, and it only takes 20 minutes to make!
Let’s just be real. The day after Labor Day is hard. I mean, look at me. I didn’t get to work until 5:00 pm today. In another world, the one where you have to dress up and drive to get to your office, this would be unacceptable. But in my world? And in my office?! This is SO Monday! Except that it’s Tuesday, but it totally feels like a Monday.
In other news, shrimp seems to really like my silver pan. I wasn’t kidding when I said that we’d have shrimp, again, this week.
Have you noticed? Around here, we are forever in love with rice. Chicken and Rice Casserole in one corner and Chicken Rice and Vegetable Skillet in another… Looks like we are also in love with chicken.
I enjoy making rice, but I like to make rice that comes together in a pinch. I certainly love to eat risotto, but making it takes for…ev…errrr. I leave risotto-makin’ to my Mom.
BUT when it comes to Fried Rice, or General Tso’s Chicken, Success® Basmati Rice is mah main squeeze.
Success® Basmati Rice is the only Boil-In-Bag Basmati Rice available. It’s long, it’s fragrant, and it’s fluffy! Best part?

This recipe is big and it’s goooood! It feels simple and well-known, but it also feels indulgent. It is a straightforward, “What to do with my Leftovers” recipe that everyone needs to have in their arsenal. For reals. This stuff is SO GOOD.
