Homemade Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe

Publisher Photo
Growing up in Manhattan, I got spoiled by authentic Chinatown fried rice. Now living in the south, I've yet to find a restaurant that serves fried rice as good as I grew up with. The combination of ingredients in this recipe is so fantastic, I now prefer to make my own fried rice at home.—Katherine White, Clemmons, North Carolina
