1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups frozen pea and carrot blend
4 cloves garlic, grated
2 teaspoons grated ginger
3 large eggs, beaten
4 cups cooked and cooled long grain white rice
6 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
4 green onions, green parts


Step 1

Make Gorton’s Popcorn Shrimp according to box directions.

Step 2

While the shrimp is baking, add vegetable oil to a 12-inch skillet set over medium-high heat.

Step 3

When the oil is hot, add in the frozen peas and carrots, garlic and ginger. Cook for about 2 minutes just to defrost the vegetables.

Step 4

Push the vegetables to one side of the skillet and pour the eggs into the cleared side. Scramble for a few minutes just to cook the eggs. Once fully cooked, mix together and stir in rice and soy sauce.

Step 5

Cook for about 5 minutes until all the ingredients are heated through.

Step 6

Add in the cooked shrimp and green onions and toss to combine.
