Spicy Garlic Tempura Shrimp

One of my favorite parts of take-out Asian food is the side of fried rice. it goes with everything from short ribs to steamed crabs. The problem with fried rice is that it can be a bit laborious to make at home, especially when you are making a main course to go with it.

The Chinese-Style Vegetable makes for a perfect side or try the Yakitori Chicken, Yakiniku Beef, Thai-Style Chicken or Bibimbap Beef as an easy main course. Each grain of rice is infused during the cooking process with their signature sauces that gives incredible flavor in every bite. We found Ling Ling in the frozen foods section of our local grocery store.
