2 eggs

½ lemon  (squeeze the juice out of it)

1 – 2 cups of shrimp deveined and tail off

2 cups of long grain white rice or you can use brown rice

How to Make Shrimp Fried Rice

Now that you have all your ingredients you need do the following:

In a mixing bowl add squeezed lemon juice to the clean shrimp and let it sit for about 15 min.  You will see the color of the shrimp change from gray to red.  The lemon is actually being absorbed by the shrimp.

  • Make your rice first.  Just follow the instructions on the rice box.

While that sits you can cut up your ingredients like the onions, jalepenos, garlic and cilantro.

  • Add 2 TBS of olive oil to your wok or pot on high heat for one minute then decrease it to med hi
  • Add the minced garlic mix it with the oil decrease heat if the wok or pot is too hot
  • Add the shrimp within 40 seconds of adding the garlic, stir them together
    • Shrimp will turn red as it cooks
    • Now add some black pepper mix, oyster sauce mix and the Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce mix well.  The water that is released by the shrimp should be sizzling at this point if it’s sizzling too much decrease the heat.  As soon as some of the soupiness disappears add the onions and jalepenos mix well
    • Don’t overcook the onions
    • Add rice 2 cups of cooked rice to the mix and stir it into the pot mix the shrimp and rice really well.
    • Let the rice and shrimp mixture cook for about 5 min while you are mixing it.  Now in the same pot or wok move the rice n shrimp mixture to the side of the pot and add a little bit more of olive oil to the empty side of the pot about 1 TBS decrease the heat  to medium add 2 eggs
    • Let the 2 eggs cook until you see the white part start cooking a little not all the way then break mix the egg on that side of the pot without touching the rice.
    • Once the egg is mixed and almost cook then mix the eggs with the rice n shrimp mix for 5 min add salt for taste and you are done.
    • Put the shrimp fried rice in a nice plate and garnish with cilantro.
    • The most important part eat it with someone you love.  Yourself, your dog or cat, or your family

I hope you all enjoyed my Shrimp Fried Rice.  I have made many versions before and this one is the best.  I made this recipe myself.  I always wondered how they made it so good.  I have good taste buds so I can figure out what ingredients are used in many foods when we go out.

Spanish Food Recipes, Indian Food Recipes and Fiji Food Recipes

Today, I am going to talk to you about why Spanish food inspires me.  I love my Mom-in-Law’s Spanish food recipes.

I took a trip to Spain to visit my fiance for the whole month of December.  We enjoyed all the wonderful foods and pastries they had everywhere.  I love the Spaniard culture and the way they love to celebrate life.  My experience with them was all about eating well, drinking vino 2 times a day, and enjoying  a drink called Cidra, which is amazing!  I miss all of Spain.  The culture, food, family and of course the vino.

My Fiance’s family lives by the beach and it’s amazing there.  I didn’t want to leave.

Why Spain? Spanish Food Recipes, Indian Food Recipes and Fiji Food Recipes

So, that’s how I got involved with Spanish foods.  I am from Fiji Islands and I’ve been raised here in the states.  However, you don’t know how much of being around great food and family growing up has influenced my life.  My mom is an amazing woman!  The things she taught me about cooking has stayed with me all my life and all I am doing now as an adult is tweeking it to make it more creative and sharing all that I have learned with the world.

Me and My Husband (Ramon) In Madrid

I get bored so easy so I had to learn some Spanish food recipes and I love that I can take my mom’s influence on cooking Indian/Fijian foods and incorporate it in with my Spanish dishes.

Why we created this blog for Spanish Food Recipes, Indian Food Recipes and Fiji Food Recipes

Now, our blog is to help everyone out there learn how to cook.  Especially those people who have never fried an egg.  Lol… I know how you feel.  I have a funny story about how I first boiled an egg and it was ridiculous.  I was 13 years old and my mom was very sick in bed.  I wanted to make her some boiled eggs and I put the water in and 3 eggs. Next thing you know I smelled something burning and my mom woke up and asked me what is burning.  I of course, said, “Nothing.”  Omg.. the water had dissipated and the eggs where burning in there shell and when I took the lid off the pot the eggs popped out of the pot all over the kitchen.  OMG…… I learned pretty quickly not to ever let that happen again.  Silly me….

For those cooks that are just as silly as me, I have so many great ideas and easy recipes for you for Spanish food recipes, Indian food recipes and Fiji food recipes.

Send me some comments on what you guys would like out there in cyber space.

See you really soon and we will prepare some Spanish food recipes, Indian food recipes, and Fiji food recipes.
