This One-pot shrimp fried rice takes 20 minutes to make and you only need one-pot. This homemade recipe is healthier, cheaper and tastes better than take-out. Simple to make and whoever you make this for will be asking for seconds!

HELPFUL TIP: To keep the ingredients and their flavors from mixing together, cook separately, yet in the same pan. Start with the shrimp, cook it until it’s almost done. Remove from the pan, and start cooking the other ingredients. Add the shrimp back in and mix together with soy sauce.
