Ok, y'all, I'm going to share my all time favorite recipe with y'all tonight....Japanese fried rice and yum yum or shrimp sauce! I also made teriyaki zucchini and baked sweet & sour chicken:) Anthony & I have it at least once a month and it saves us a ton of money, we used to go out to Japanese Steakhouses but now we just make it at home! I always have to make a huge double batch of the rice & sauce though because there are several guys Anthony work with that beg me to make it for them as well! haha:) It's pretty simple and can be tweaked to suit almost anyone's tastes. I always cook my white rice and prepare the sauce the night before, it tastes much better after sitting overnight in the fridge. I hope y'all enjoy it as much as we all do!
Yum Yum or Shrimp Sauce
- 1 1/4 cup Hellman's Mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 1/2 TBS melted butter
- 1 TBS tomato paste
- 1/2 TSP garlic powder
- 1 TSP sugar
- 1 TSP paprika
- 1/4 TSP cayenne, or to taste
- In a blender (I use a blender bottle from GNC that I bought for protein shakes lol) add mayo, water, melted butter, garlic powder, sugar, paprika and cayenne.
- Blend until well mixed.
- Refrigerate at least 4 hours for flavors to mingle, overnight is best
- Serve with fried rice, shrimp, chicken, veggies...a leather boot, whatevs....it's that good! haha;)
Japanese Fried Rice
- 3 - 4 cups cooked white rice (day old is best, that's why I cook it the night before!)
- 3 TBS sesame oil
- 1 TBS butter
- 3/4 - 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
- 1 small onion
- 2 TSP minced garlic
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1/3 cup soy sauce, or to taste
- optional, toasted sesame seeds, to taste
- On medium-high heat, heat the oil and butter in a large skillet or wok.
- Add peas & carrots mix, garlic and onion, stir fry until tender.
- While vegetables are cooking, place your eggs in a small skillet and cook until done.
- Add eggs, rice and soy sauce to your vegetable mixture and blend together well.
- Stir fry until thoroughly heated through.
**You can totally play around with this recipe and add mushrooms, zucchini, or whatever to the vegetable mixture!**
