To Prepare Separately:
This recipe was developed for Zojirushi rice cooker models listed here. Adjustments may be necessary when using other models.
Measure rice accurately using the measuring cup that came with your rice cooker and place in the inner cooking pan.
Add ketchup, fish sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, red chili flakes and water to the inner cooking pan and mix with rice using the rice spatula. Cook the rice using the “MIXED" setting.
While the rice cooks, heat peanut oil in a large sauté pan until hot. Add minced shallot and garlic and cook until soft – about 2 minutes.
Add grated carrots and cook until soft – about 1 minute.
Move ingredients to one side of the pan and add the beaten egg. Cook until firm, chopping with the spatula into pieces.
Add shrimp and cook until just barely done – about 2 minutes. Remove all ingredients from the pan and hold warm until rice has finished cooking.
When rice completes cooking, gently fold in the cooked shrimp and egg mixture with rice spatula.
Place rice onto individual serving bowls. Garnish each bowl with green onions, cilantro, peanuts and a lime wedge.
