  1. To begin, make the fried rice sauce. Place all ingredients for the sauce in a blender, and blend until completely smooth.
  2. In a large non-stick sauté pan, heat up the oil until little wisps of smoke start to appear. It is important that the pan is very hot. Place the shrimp, and sear until fully cooked.
  3. Remove the shrimp and add the bacon. Cook the bacon on high heat until the fat has rendered, and the bacon is crispy.
  4. Immediately add in the rice, and spread evenly throughout the sauté pan. Allow the rice to sear until it starts to become crispy, do not stir until the rice becomes slightly golden brown on the bottom.
  5. Stir the rice, and add in the zucchini, bell peppers, edamame, corn, and scallions. Continue to sauté, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are slightly cooked, and add the cooked shrimp, egg and fried rice sauce. Mix completely and remove from head.
  6. Place the fried rice neatly in the center of the plate of your choice, and top with the sliced avocado. Lightly mix the cilantro an radish, and garnish accordingly. ENJOY!
