Do you have any left over cooked rice? A great way to use it up is to make fried rice! Fried rice works best with chilled leftover rice actually. Fresh rice can fry up a bit mushy. But leftover rice that had a chance to dry out a bit is perfect for the recipe.

Anything can go into fried rice, usually a combination of veggies, beaten egg, and a protein such as the shrimp used in this recipe, or chicken or fish.
