Homemade fried rice is super easy and fairly healthy dish in moderation. I love to make it in large batches for a quick meal or paired with a ton of our favorite veggies and a protein. I use my favorite Turmeric Jasmine Rice to make it, it really adds more flavor than your standard fried rice flavor but feel free to use whatever kind of rice you like. And you’re certainly not limited to only using shrimp either. Use any kind of meat or fish that you love or simply add more of your favorite veggies. There really isn’t one that doesn’t go great with this.

In a large skillet drizzle the bottom with olive oil until covered. Over medium-high heat saute the asparagus, mushrooms, carrots, onion, peas, garlic and ginger until everything is almost softened after about 5 minutes.
Add more oil to the pan if needed before tossing in the rice with the garlic powder, onion powder, and white pepper. Stir everything for about two minutes allowing everything to heat through.
Move the rice towards the outer edges of the skillet creating a reservoir in the center. Add a little oil to the center and pour the whisked eggs. After about 30 seconds when the eggs gets a little opaque, use the spatula to scramble it up in with the rice.
Lastly, add the shrimp, soy sauce and fish sauce. Toss everything until the shrimp is cooked to tender after about 2 - 3 minutes. Add more sauce to taste if neede
