I am so excited to share this Jamaican fried rice and peas recipe. It is simple and easy to make. And most of all, it is nutritious.
Two cups overnight rice and peas
One cup medium shrimp (deveined and stripped).
Four slices of bacon
One small onion (finely sliced)
One clove garlic (finely chopped)
Half cup bell pepper (chopped)
One sprig thyme
One and a half cups vegetable oil (melted butter or olive oil)
Pour vegetable oil or melted butter in a hot medium saucepan over medium heat. Pour all ingredients (minus except the rice and peas. Sauté for 5 minutes. Then add rice. Keep stirring for another 15-20. Allow more time if you live your fried rice crispy. Either way, the dish is delicious.
