Shrimp Fried Rice - Why order take-out? This homemade version is so much healthier, cheaper and tastes a million times better!

I absolutely love ordering take-out, especially when I’m exhausted out of my mind and I have absolutely no energy to even walk to the kitchen. But when I spend $10 on a measly shrimp fried rice with just 4 shrimps in the entire dish, I knew I just had to make a homemade version. After all, nothing beats homemade, right?

Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli - A Chinese take-out favorite that can be made right in the slow cooker. It doesn't get easier than that!

I’m all about making my favorite Chinese take-out dishes right at home. It’s so much cheaper and you can use better quality ingredients.

So after making all these meatballs, I wanted to try something really different, and since I love teriyaki sauce, I just had to put two and two together.

Potstickers - Homemade potstickers are easier to make than you think, and they taste 10000x better than the store-bought ones!

Growing up in a very Korean household, we had homemade potstickers at least once a week – steamed, fried, boiled, kimchi filling, mushroom filling, shrimp filling…you name it. So it’s no surprise that I always have to order a plate of potstickers when we eat out at an Asian restaurant. But at the end of the day, nothing will ever beat homemade potstickers.

Sweet Lemon Shrimp - The easiest, most simple and flavorful shrimp marinated in a sweet and tangy lemon sauce that everyone will love!

I’m such a sucker for anything shrimp related – shrimp dumplings, shrimp quinoa spring rolls, shrimp enchiladas – you name it! But instead of using shrimp as a glorious filling, I decided it was time to let the shrimp be its very own star. With that said, I present to you the world’s easiest shrimp dish I have ever made.
