Five Spice Shrimp Fried Rice


Five Spice Shrimp Fried Rice
This Five Spice Shrimp Fried Rice is the product of a fantastic Chinese Five Spice Blend from Spicely Organic Spices and a few ingredients I grabbed from the fridge. I recently stumbled upon Spicely's YouTube Channel.  After watching a few of their video recipes I hit the Subscribe button.  Apparently I was their first subscriber.  I was shocked to learn that by being their first subbie I had won three of their spice blends.  These blends are not only certified gluten free, they’re also organic, vegan, MSG free and the list goes on and on.  Beyond the quality control of the spices themselves, they also use green packaging to reduce their carbon footprint.  Be sure to stop by and check out the Spicely Site and YouTube Channel after you check out this awesome recipe.  

Ingredients:

4 oz of shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 teaspoon five spice
Some oil
1 cup cooked rice
1 diced carrot
3 mushrooms sliced
¼ cup peas
1 clove of garlic
1 small diced onion
1 egg
2 chili peppers, 1 whole, 1 minced

Instructions:

1.      Marinate the shrimp with 1 teaspoon of  five spice, 1 teaspoon of oil and 1 minced chili pepper. 
2.      Add about a tablespoon of oil to a nonstick skillet on a medium high heat and toss in all of the veggies and saute for a minute or two before pushing the veggies to one side and tossing in the marinated shrimp. 
3.      Cook the shrimp for 2 minutes on the first side and 1minute on the second side.  While they are cooking you can add the rice on top of the veggies with a little salt or gluten free soy sauce. ( I used salt)
4.      When the shrimp look done add them to the pile with the rice and veggies and add 1 teaspoon of oil to the empty space in the pan, then break the egg into the pan and quickly begin scrambling.  Once the egg is cooked, stir the entire contents of the pan together until all the ingredients are nicely combined and it’s ready to serve.



Five Spice Shrimp Fried Rice
To make this dish look pretty for its close up, I arranged the shrimp in the bottom of a bowl, then spooned the rice over the shrimp and used the back of my spoon the pack it in tightly.  I then placed my serving plate over the bowl and inverted the bowl onto the plate before topping it with the lone chili, a drizzle of honey and some red pepper flakes.  The Chinese Five Spice Blend from Spicely totally transformed my old boring shrimp fried rice into a dish that danced on my taste buds.
