  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 pound shrimp (medium-large fresh, cleaned, approximately 15-20 count shrimp)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)

    It was great. I add little bit of coconut oil to cook white rice ,which enhance the flavor.

    While the recipe was great, it was lacking in flavor. I added fish sauce and scale back to 1 tbsp of sesame oil because it was a bit overpowering.

    Overall it’s a good recipe. I used brown rice and mixed canola and olive oil. I would have used slightly less oil if I made it again. Also, I would have preferred some red pepper flakes for spice. Definitely season your shrimp (even if only with salt and pepper). I also ended up using half low sodium soy sauce and half regular because of availability. Regular soy sauce helps with the flavor if you aren’t concerned with the high sodium.

    TThis delicious. Added a bit extra garlic because I like it. The green onions really help the flavor.
