        Directions

        If desired, in a small bowl, soak the dried shrimp in hot water for 20 minutes, then drain and set aside.

        For the spicy ketchup sauce, if using: In a small bowl, combine the ketchup and chili sauce and set aside.

        For the fried rice: Heat a wok over high heat and add 1 tablespoon peanut oil. Add the eggs and scramble, then set aside on a plate.

        Add the remaining 1 tablespoon peanut oil to the wok. Add the ginger and stir-fry for less than 1 minute. Then add the carrots and stir-fry for 1 minute more. Add the pork, the soaked dried shrimp if using, and mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes. Then add the peas and cooked rice and toss together. Add the cooked egg back into the wok.

          I loved this rice! I used small salad shrimp instead of dried shrimp. It was great the 1st day, and the leftovers were even better the next day. Can't wait to make it again!

          I absolutely love fried rice and this was perfect - not too greasy, not too salty, full of flavor. I only put about 1/2t of salt in the rice when cooking it, I should have put more. I used about 3T soy sauce and 1.5T of fish sauce. Wonderful - thank you!
