Shrimp Fried Rice is one of our favorite dishes when we get take-out. After the success of our Japanese Steakhouse Fried Rice, we decided to tackle our other favorite fried rice recipe. Like our other fried rice recipe, this one uses day old rice and cooks super fast. The fried rice that you get from take-out utilizes smaller sized shrimp, but we used full size shrimp to turn this side dish into an entree! Check out our recipe below.

The other day I went to the store and they had sirloin steaks on sale. So I picked a few up. I wanted to try something new so I decided to make Asian Style Beef Kabobs. I wanted to do a skewer that was reminiscent of a Stir-fry. So I skewered broccoli, whole water chestnuts, peppers and onions. Then I created a nice marinade that was thick and could grab onto the meat and vegetables. This was a great meal. The meat and veggies came out perfect.
The other day I was craving some Chinese takeout, but figured that I should make my own. So I did. I made a healthier version of Kung Pao Chicken. Normally the chicken is deep fried, but to change things up a bit, I decided to stir-fry the chicken. The recipe came out super tasty.
Serve over rice for the ultimate take-out at home.
