Shrimp fried rice

2 Cups rice (that is measured uncooked) Cook according to box
2 Pounds peeled, deveined, uncooked shrimp, cut in half
5 cloves garlic, chopped
4 Tbsp Onion, Chopped
1 Cup Peas & Carrots (frozen or can)
1/2 Stick butter
Soy sauce to taste
Salt & Pepper to taste

Cook rice according to directions then set out uncovered allowing it to cool and dry a little. In saute pan melt butter, add shrimp and half of garlic and saute until shrimp is done (probably a good idea to taste it while cooking for doneness). Remove shrimp and set aside leaving butter and juices in pan. Add rice to pan with garlic, onion, and soy sauce. Cook over medium low heat. Don't stir it a lot, allowing rice to get fried and change colors to a slight brown. When rice is almost done add in shrimp, peas and carrots and toss until all is heated through.
