Reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in shrimp, cook 5-7 minutes longer or until shrimp turn pink.

Serve with rice

I used a green pepper and a red pepper – next time, I’ll add yellow and orange peppers also.

I winged it on the rice. I just made a large batch (figuring I’d make more when needed)

Every time we go to the ocean – I buy a community cookbook – I enjoy trying new seafood dishes that are not common in our area. This recipe is from a spiral bound community church program called Along the Shores of Florida

If you don’t like spicy – cut back on the hot sauce –


Special Fried Rice with Foo Yung


 This dish is delicious!  My husband ate 4 bowls in one sitting!     I will make this again, and I will just scramble the foo yung part, and mix it into the rice.  Also, the Foo Yung recipe:  I did not add the salt – I did do pepper – I figured between all the other ingredients it did not need more salt and this was perfect for us.   I also had some leftover turkey cold cuts, so I chopped those up and included them with the ham and shrimp combination.

This book has so many recipes that look like every day staples I keep in the pantry.  I have marked several recipes I will be trying from this book.  
I also added chopped carrots with the peas
 I’m showing you a photo of this dish after following the instructions exactly – it is an ugly 1970’s looking dish.  I laughed and said, “Wow, that is so 70’s looking!”   I then chopped up the egg, and mixed it in.
