Restaurant Style Shrimp Fried Rice: An absolutely flavorful and mouthwatering restaurant style shrimp fried rice recipe using veggies, shrimp and a mix of sweet-spicy butter sauce. Perfect to celebrate special moments with your loved ones.
The weekend is almost here and before we make any plans, I need to share this tantalizing and finger-licking good Restaurant Style Shrimp Fried Rice in sweet-spicy butter sauce recipe with you’ll.
Ingredients for Restaurant Style Shrimp Fried Rice:
Cooked White Rice
Mixed Vegetables – like carrots, peas, asparagus, whatever you like.
It’s one of those recipes that you make for special events or to go that extra mile and create a gorgeous looking dish for that someone special ….. for me.
I seriously wanted to make my mom feel extra extra extra special for everything she does for all of us.
Since we are going that extra mile, I’m going to serve it along with our favorite ‘Gold medal Winner(SF Chronicle Wine Competition Jan. 2017) – Butter Chardonnay Wine by JaM Cellars.
It’s a is rich, bold and luscious wine, made in the tradition of quality Californian winemaking.
They cold ferment this easy-to-love Chardonnay to a lush creaminess and age it in our unique blend of oak. Butter brims with stone fruit and baked lemon notes and has a lovely, long, vanilla finish.
Simply put, it melts in your mouth & just the PERFECT wine to go with our Restaurant Style Shrimp Fried Rice recipe.
Now, that we know what we are making for #MothersDay celebrations, let’s discuss – How do you celebrate the Day?
Do you treat her with a whole day of a special pass for anything she desires 😉 or does you take her out for a fun outing?
I usually do a mix of both and I have to share this really funny incident that almost always happens to us or rather me & mom.
Every Mother’s day, we start the day early with a quick breakfast in bed and then we take her shopping where the men and women split up for obvious reasons.
Unless you want to exit the mall in 10 minutes (cause the men to believe we just need 10 minutes to go, pick-up the first thing and come out … Seriously!).
Once in the mall, I always start with the stores she likes (which obviously I like too …which women don’t like clothes n cosmetics & jewelry ;)).
I promise, I always enter the store with the utmost feeling of helping mom choose stuff but then after 10-15 minutes once we are kind of comfortable around and suddenly my eyes are all over the stuff that I would buy.
Now, I hope that’s fairly normal and I’m not the only one doing that 😉
So, the trip that started as Mom’s shopping spree takes a complete turnaround and somehow becomes ‘Mom look how cute is that top or how amazing is this new bag’ and so goes her shopping.
But thankfully, by the time we reach the checkout counter some mystical power prevails.
And I end up keeping most of my stuff away (hmmmmm…..which I would buy later over the week) as this is all about ‘Mom’!!!
Next stop is usually her favorite spa or we end up going to the beach or a drive around the gorgeous CA – Highway 1 which has the most picturesque drive.
Once, we are back home, the chilled Butter Chardonnay is a perfect drink to unwind and relax with some light music and chit-chat.
As I had already prepared the Restaurant Style Shrimp Fried Rice heating up dinner is just a 10 minutes job and we are all set.
Before I leave, here are some more details on the Butter Chardonnay Wine by JaM Cellars :
- JaM Cellars makes three easy-to-love, everyday California wines Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling.
- Second-generation Napa Valley vintners John and Michele are the “J” and the “M” in JaM Cellars. They made these wines in a style they love to enjoy with their friends any day of the week.
