  1. Heat the oil in a stir fry pan until it is hot.

  2. Transfer handfuls of the cold rice into the pan and stir with a wooden spoon until the rice is thoroughly hot and well oiled (about 3-5 minutes)

  3. Pour some Teriyaki sauce or unpasteurized soy sauce onto the rice and stir while it is still cooking.

  4. Mix in some wild precooked salad shrimp and your leftover veggies. 

  5. Stir until hot (about 1 minute) and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

To make fried rice, you MUST use cooked rice that is cold. You may use brown or the more nutrient dense wild rice if you prefer.
