This fried rice is a favorite of Hubby's and also was well-received by guests. It's easy to whip up quickly if you need to. I try to use the minimal amount of meat needed to give it good flavor to the whole dish when I make it just for the two of us. You may want to increase to 1/2 lb shrimp if serving to guests. Hubby actually prefers this using 1/2 lb pork in place of the shrimp, but this is healthier. Sometimes I sub fake crab for the shrimp. It ends up a little sweeter but still good. Scallops are also a delicious option.
