Simple and delicious dish, to make it all you have to do is marinate the shrimp then quickly sauté them in a pan, adding the vegetables cut into brunoise, or in cubes of the same size: so they will stay crunchy and well separated. Then add the rice, the eggs cooked in a pan like an omelet and voila: in a few minutes you will have a delicious and satisfying meal to eat even cold and bring at work, in trip or from eat with the family.

To make this dish you can use the type of rice that you like the most: we have opted for an ideal typology for ethnic dishes, the basmati rice, in order to accentuate the oriental note of the dish; you can use a different type by choosing, for example, salad rice, if you like separate and “crunchy” grains, or risotto rice for creamy results. The seasoning can also vary a lot: you can use fresh or frozen peas, to add vegetables such as zucchini, eggplant, pumpkin cubes or lightly blanched cabbage; you can also add olives, capers, anchovies and replace the prawns with squid, squid or with pieces of natural salmon.

If you use, as in our recipe, already cooked rice, do it with rice cooked until the previous 48 hours e well stored in the refrigerator, inside an airtight container. Alternatively, you can cook rice from scratch.
