Step 1: Cook the Rice

Bring the water to a boil, then add rice and simmer on low for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir the rice and cover for 5 more minutes. Then move the rice into your serving bowl(s).

Step 2: Cook the Eggs

Add the oil to the pot and return to medium heat. After the oil heats up, add the eggs and scramble.

Step 3: Combine and Mix

When the eggs are cooked through, return the rice to the pot. Add the shrimp, pepper, garlic powder, and soy sauce. The soy sauce is to taste but 3 tbs seems about right. Mix thoroughly and cook for 2 minutes on medium heat.
