Korean Easy Shrimp Fried Rice [Saewoo Bokumbap]

I felt like eating seafood today. So here I am with new recipe called Saewoon Bokumbap! :D

This is the fried rice with shrimps which is so easy and quick to make. You can add pretty much any veggies you like if you have shrimps and some steamed rice. I often make fried rice whenever I have too much leftover steamed rice. You can serve this shrimp fried rice as a side dish or enjoy as it is. I also recommend you to make rice ball with it for picnic.( like this: Ju-mok-bap)
