Shrimp Cilantro Fried Rice


This is a very quick recipe and great for using up leftover rice.  I don't have peanut oil , so I just subbed olive oil.  I also would only use 3 cups of cooked rice next time or double the carrots, shrimp and cilantro.

2  teaspoons peanut oil
1  teaspoon dark sesame oil
1/4  cup finely chopped carrot
1  teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1/4  teaspoon crushed red pepper
3  garlic cloves, minced
4  cups cooked long-grain rice
1  cup chopped cooked shrimp
2  tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1/2  cup chopped fresh cilantro

Preparation
Heat oils in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrot, ginger, red pepper, and garlic; sauté for 1 minute. Add rice; sauté 2 minutes. Stir in shrimp and soy sauce; sauté 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro.
