3 tablespoons peanut oil or olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 lb shrimp
10 ounces chopped carrot
4 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons ginger, minced and peeled
344 grams long-grain brown rice, cooked and chilled

6 tablespoons mirin
8 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
4 teaspoon dark sesame oil
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 ounces fresh bean sprouts
1 cup chopped green onions

Recipe Directions for Shrimp Fried Rice

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon peanut oil to pan, swirling to coat. Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon salt over pork. Add pork to pan, and sauté for 2 minutes or until browned on all sides. Remove pork from pan. Add carrot and celery to pan, and sauté for 2 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Add carrot mixture to the pork.

  2. Add remaining 1 tablespoon peanut oil to pan, swirling to coat. Stir in green onion bottoms, garlic, and ginger; cook for 15 seconds, stirring constantly. Add rice, stirring well to coat rice with oil; cook, without stirring, for 2 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Stir rice mixture, and cook, without stirring, an additional 2 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Make a well in center of rice mixture. Add egg; stir-fry for 30 seconds or until soft-scrambled, stirring constantly.

  3. Return the pork mixture to pan. Stir in mirin, and cook for 1 minute or until mirin is absorbed. Stir in the remaining 3/8 teaspoon salt, soy sauce, sesame oil, and pepper. Remove from heat, and stir in bean sprouts and water chestnuts. Sprinkle with green onion tops.
