Shrimp And Zucchini Fried Rice



When you have less than 30 minutes to prepare a meal, how do you manage it? This recipe is my perfect kind of fried rice, healthy, full of flavor, and fiber and easy to prepare.


Time: 25 minutes
Makes 4-6 servings

Ingredients:
4 Cups cooked brown rice
2 tbsp. Sesame oil
1/2 kilo shelled shrimp
2 tbsp maple syrup or honey
3 medium size zucchini chopped according to your preference.
2 tsp soy sauce
some scallions or green onions thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic chopped finely
salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat oil on medium -high  until hot. Add shrimp (you may season it with some salt, and pepper) and cook for about 2 minutes or until color changes. Then add 1 tbsp of  honey or maple syrup. Stir well and transfer to a bowl.

2. In the same skillet,  add zucchini. Stir occasionally, and add the remaining honey or maple syrup, soy sauce and add some water (2-3 tbsp)  if the pan is dry. Cover and cook for 4-6 minutes or until the zucchini is tender. Remove from heat and set aside with the bowl of shrimp.
3. This time you may add some oil on your skillet, and saute the garlic, then add the green onions. Add the rice and season with few dash of salt. Stir and cook for 3 minutes. Then add the zucchini and shrimp.
Serve.


You may also use chicken in place of shrimp, and add some carrots and peas for a more oriental style fried rice.
