Shrimp Fried Rice

3 cups cold cooked short grain rice
1 cup raw small to medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 eggs
Chinese cooking wine
Soy sauce
Sesame oil
6 scallions
peanut oil

1/2 cup diced Smithfield style ham (optional)
1/2 cup fresh or thawed, frozen green peas (optional)
1/2 cup diced celery blanched for 2 minutes and drained (optional)

If desired cut the shrimp into smaller pieces. Mix the shrimp with
1/2 Tb soy sauce and 1 Tsp cooking wine in a small bowl and let
sit for at least 15 minutes.

Beat the eggs with 1 Tbsp soy sauce and 1 Tsp sesame oil. Heat 1
Tbsp of oil in a wok. When hot pour in the egg mixture and tip wok
to swirl the egg around. Use a cooking scoop to lift the edges
and allow liquid egg to flow under the cooked part. You want a
"pancake" of egg 8-12 inches in diameter. Remove from pan when
fully cooked.

Wipe out the pan with a paper towel and add 1/4c peanut oil. When
hot add the rice at stir constantly and rapidly for 2-3 minutes,
breaking up any clumps. Push the rice to the sides of the wok
leaving an empty area in the center. Add 2 Tbsp oil to the center
of the pan then add the shrimp, scallions, and any optional
ingredients you are using. Stir fry for a minute or so until the
newly added ingredients are partially cooked, then start mixing
them in with the rice. Stir fry the entire mixture for a minute or
two, then add the eggs. Continue to cook for another minute, cutting
the eggs up with your cooking scoop. Taste for salt and serve at
