I kept tasting fried rice but no shrimp...to the rescue was ground chicken, I added the Thai spices ginger, lemongrass, onions, garlic and basil. Scrambled eggs, green onions and mushrooms completed it.I seasoned pretty intensely, ground chicken is pretty bland. Then added 2 packages of liquid chicken enhancer, the flavors came thru. To reduce the amount of sodium ,you can double up on the spices and the seasoned cook will have their own stock handy. For me I would purchase boxed stock and cook it down for more flavor. This is a great one skillet meal.
