This garlic shrimp fried brown rice is simple, delicious and easy to put together. I normally use long grain white rice for my fried rice, but this time around, i decided to use wholegrain brown rice. To cook this dish, you don’t have to adapt to the exact ingredients i used. In the past, i have used chicken, beef, green peas, cilantro, scrambled egg, white rice and now brown rice. Fried rice is a versatile dish and can be customized based on the ingredients you have.
