Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice

April 4, 2016

I don’t think I will get tired of homemade fried rice any time soon. After we discovered we could bring take-out home without actually leaving the house, we have become totally obsessed with homemade Chinese food


Today, we are taking Chinese take-out at home to a whole nother level! With this Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice, you will silence your take-out woes and save yourself some major cash money bypassing the take-out life. We started off with making our Homemade Special Fried Rice. And, after that, we were absolutely hooked.



Hysterical story to tell. My mother-in-law, Mayra, lost her phone, right? Well, she didn’t even know she lost it but she totally did. Freddy, my father-in-law called us and asked if we had spoken to her in the last few hours. We actually hadn’t. We’d been trying to reach her. We continued calling trying to find her to no avail. We called Freddy back and told him to let us know the status when he hears from her, maybe she was busy at work.


Around 6 PM, he called us back to tell us she had lost her phone. She went to Pollo Tropical {fast Cuban food} to eat something and then hit up Target to look for bathing suits for Mexico. Somewhere along those two places, she lost her phone. She went home and told Freddy the story but they kept calling the phone going straight to voicemail. They thought for sure someone found it, kept it and shut it off.



They got a call back around 5:45 PM from a guy that said he found it on the floor of the hospital parking lot with a cracked screen and that they can come pick it up. All of us were like, “WHAT?!” Nicest guy though. Who would find a phone on the floor while at a hospital and be willing to wait around for the owner to come pick it up? That guy. They went in they picked it up and it seems that it works just fine.


Isn’t that crazy? Told ya it was a funny story. Now, go eat some Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice.

Medley Rice


Stir-Fry Sauce



  1. Wash, peel, slice, chop, spiralize, cut and mince your veggies. Set aside chives. Throw remaining produce into a large bowl. Cover with chia and hemp seeds. Mix well. Set aside.

  2. In a large pot or rice cooker, add dry ingredients. Drizzle with olive oil and sea salt. Top with water until your medley mix is submerged. Cook on high for 30 to 45 minutes, depending if it’s a rice cooker or not, check for tenderness. If the rice is soft, remove from heat. If it is al dente, cook for another 15 minutes.

  3. As the medley rice comes together, devein shrimp and remove tail.

  5. Meanwhile the protein is cooking, whisk together stir fry sauce ingredients until smoothly combined. Set aside.

  6. In a small bowl, beat two eggs until scrambled. Set aside.

  7. Add scallops, shrimp and veggies to the pot of rice. Drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil and mix well. Increase temperature to medium-high heat. Pour on your stir fry sauce. Cook for 10 minutes stirring frequently. Add bean sprouts. Combine.
