Shrimp Fried Rice with Broccoli

Shrimp fried rice with broccoli

One of my favorite foods on earth is rice. I grew up eating rice almost every day. Rice and beans are a very important part of Brazilian cuisine and we eat this combo for lunch with meat and salad. When I moved to Canada, I noticed that people here don’t eat rice as often as Brazilians do, but they eat fried rice due to the Asian culture influence, which is something that in Brazil is not very popular. To be honest I have never eaten fried rice down there. I know they must have that because there are Asian restaurants down there, but I never had a chance to eat that.

So, now that I live in Canada I often eat fried rice because I totally love it. I always make this recipe when I have rice leftovers. I hate to eat rice the next day. For me rice has to be very fresh to taste good, but in this recipe it doesn’t have to.

    What a great solution! I really hate throwing away leftover rice, but I’m hard-pressed to find things to do with it. I need more fried rice in my life!!! I love that cast iron skillet by the way, so gorgeously retro.

    I find those kinds of differences between countries fascinating! I’ve never tried traditional Brazilian rice and beans … but of course would like to! I also love fried rice, but never really think of making it. I love this version of yours with all those yummy prawns in it! Marvellous!
