Thai Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe (Khao Pad Man Goong Sa Wuey)

Share This Recipe

This is another one of those recipes that is perfect for when you want something fresh and tasty, but are short on time. We often make this in the evening after work when we don’t have much time to make anything too elaborate.

The taste is mild but not bland, and the key ingredient is the shrimp paste with soya bean oil, which I have linked to below in case you don’t know what it looks like. As with all fried rice recipes, this is a great, tasty way to use up leftover steamed rice.
