Here’s one of my favorite weeknight recipes. This is super quick, easy and healthy!
My husband and I actually prefer this dish to ordering Chinese take out.


2 tbsp peanut oil
4 medium scallions, chopped
1 tbsp minced peeled fresh ginger
1/2 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp, chopped
1 large yellow bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 tsp five spice powder
2 large eggs, well beaten
4-5 cups cooked long grain rice
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp oyster sauce


Heat the peanut oil in a wok over medium-high heat
Add scallions and ginger, stir fry for 15 seconds
Add shrimp, stir fry until no longer pink, about 2 minutes
Add bell pepper and five spice powder, stir fry until aromatic about 1-2 mins
Push ingredients to side of wok, pour in well beaten eggs and scramble in the well at the wok’s center.
Add cooked rice, stir fry to heat through, about 2 mins
Stir together soy sauce, rice vinegar and oyster sauce and pour over rice mixture.
