Shrimp Fried Rice

2 bunches scallions
3/4 pound cooked and peeled medium shrimp (about 18 large)
5 cups chilled Chinese-style white rice
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons chicken broth
2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine or sake
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons corn or safflower oil
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh gingerroot
a thawed 10-ounce package frozen peas


Finely chop enough scallions to measure about 2 cups and halve shrimp lengthwise. Spread rice in a shallow baking pan and separate grains with a fork. In a small bowl lightly beat eggs. In a small bowl stir together seasoning liquid ingredients. In a deep 12-inch heavy non-stick skillet heat corn or safflower oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking and stir-fry eggs until scrambled, about 30 seconds. Add scallions and gingerroot and stir-fry 1 minute. Add shrimp and peas and stir-fry until heated through. Add rice and cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through. Stir seasoning liquid and add to fried rice, tossing to coat evenly.
