  • If using frozen shrimp, begin by thawing out shrimp under cold water. This should take 5 minutes in a colander. Pat shrimp dry. Generously coat shrimp in blackening seasoning.

  • Pour the frozen vegetable fried rice into the non stick skillet. Cook for 4-5 minutes until heated through.
  • While the rice is cooking, cook the shrimp in the cast iron skillet 1-2 minutes on each side depending on the size shrimp. Turn off heat and set aside.
  • Make a crater in the rice. Scramble 3 eggs and pour into the crater. Using a spatula, scramble eggs in the middle of the pan until fully cook. Gently stir into the rest of the rice.
  • Transfer the shrimp to the rice. Add sliced green onions to garnish and serve!
