Thank you, so much, Jenny.
That means a lot, not just after investing so much time & energy into the recipe itself, but after working on structuring the post so instructions are clear to describe what to do, and more importantly WHY to do it.
Okay, now having said that, here's a different fried rice recipe:
This is luxury type fried rice for the aristocratic crowd, "Scallop & Lobster Fried Rice."
Use Jasmine (or Thai) rice.
Follow the original recipe using scallops instead of shrimp. Adjust the amount to use 2-3 times more scallops than shrimp.
Substitute a diced lobster tail in place of char-siu.
You can also be a bit more generous with the chinese chives & green onions.
Eggs are optional, but if you ARE going to add them, you should one extra yoke per egg just to make the eggs more rich.
Everything else can stay the same, or adjust to taste as you wish.
