Fried rice is an endlessly customizable Chinese stir-fry dish, in which cooked rice is finished in a pan of sauce and vegetables. As the dish’s popularity has grown, countless variations have appeared across the world. One of our favorites uses traditional ingredients from south of the border. Here, we’re making Mexican-inspired shrimp fried rice, seasoned with authentic spices and garnished with cilantro, crema, lime juice and avocado, as well as seasonal vegetables. Bright, easy and amazingly satisfying, this gourmet meal is the perfect way to begin the summer.
