Ginger Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe

I love ginger. I find myself gravitating towards gingery recipes and adding this delicious and invigorating spice to everything from soup to stir fry dishes. One of my favorite gingery recipes is ginger shrimp fried rice. It’s quick, easy, and my family loves it! Normally, when I make shrimp and ginger fried rice, I use medium to long grain white rice. It’s fluffy, sturdy and doesn’t clump or fall apart when fried. Recently I tried Jasmine rice, and was impressed by the way it turned out.

Ginger Shrimp Fried Rice with Jasmine Rice Recipe

Fried rice is one of those comfort foods that everyone makes to their liking. Throughout the years I’ve adapted my fried rice ingredients to suit my family. You don’t need exact ingredients or measurements. And just about any ingredient belongs in fried rice. I’ve used leftover chicken, crab meat, shrimp, sambal oelek, coriander, ginger, sesame oil, cilantro, white rice and now jasmine rice.

Jasmine Rice is a aromatic long grain rice grown in the highlands of Thailand. When cooked it is soft and fluffy with a taste that enhances traditional spices. After learning about Jasmine rice, I knew it would be the perfect ingredient in my ginger shrimp fried rice.

Success Rice recently introduced Jasmine Rice, a boil-in-bag rice that is ready in just 10 minutes. I’m always looking for ways to avoid having to pull out my rice cooker. It’s big and a pain to clean, so using Jasmine Rice was a huge time saver. Each box contains four bags which is perfect for my family. No measuring or burnt rice because I left the rice on a little too long.

Making fried rice is easy in theory, but getting it right may take some experimenting. The key to a “really good fried rice” is day old cold rice and a hot wok. Here, I added a lot of ginger because I love it, and for a sharper flavor. You can make this as is or adjust the ginger to suit your taste.
