Healthier Shrimp Fried Rice
I could eat rice, or pasta, or pizza, or just carbs in general every day for every meal. But, since I’m trying to eat healthier, I’m always trying to create health conscious alternatives to my favourite foods.
This dish is my healthier version of shrimp fried rice.
2 whole eggs and 2 egg whites, scrambled
1 tbsp grapeseed oil
4 cups cooked rice (best if it’s cooked the night before or a few hours before and chilled in the fridge)
1 small bunch green onions, chopped
1 clove garlic
4 white mushrooms, chopped
1 1/2cups peeled/cooked salad shrimp, thawed
1 tbsp soy sauce (preferably low sodium)
1/2 tbsp fish sauce
1. Spray a medium pan with cooking spray and scramble the whole eggs and the egg whites. Set aside.
2. In a larger pan, add the grapeseed oil, onions, and garlic. Saute for two minutes and then add the mushrooms and shrimp. Stir to combine and saute for a few minutes until the mushrooms begin to shrink.
3. Add the cooked rice, soy sauce, fish sauce, and scrambled eggs. Stir for a few minutes until all ingredients are combined and the rice is warm.
4. Serve with slices of avocado and lime.
