This is a quick dinner my family enjoys, you can use shrimp or any meat of you choice, or shrimp and meat, or no meat at all ,you can make it vegtable fried rice by adding broccolli and califlower,carrots and peas and it is still very tasty. I make my rice the day before. You can use a wok, but its not neccessary, a very large pan will do just as well.
