Cook’s notes: We tested this recipe using sesame seeds from the McCormick’s Gourmet Spices line. Remember to wear rubber gloves when chopping jalapeno or else don’t touch your eyes for 24 hours. If you don’t have crunchy peanut butter, smooth peanut butter can be substituted along with a tablespoon of finely chopped dry-roasted peanuts for texture, if desired. @Recipe nutrition:Nutrition values per serving: 376 calories (33 percent from fat), 14 g fat (2 g saturated), 54 g carbohydrates, 6 g fiber, 12 g protein, 0 cholesterol, 70 mg sodium.

Refrigerate uncovered until cold, preferably overnight. Remove from the refrigerator at least an hour before cooking and allow to come to room temperature.

Place the nuts in a single layer on a pan or in a skillet, and toast until golden and fragrant. Start checking at 5 minutes. When done, remove from pan and set aside to cool. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs well with a fork. Heat a large wok over medium-high heat until the first wisp of white smoke comes off the wok. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil, and tilt the wok to coat. Add the eggs, and quickly stir until just cooked, about 30 seconds. Remove the eggs from the wok, and set aside on a plate. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in the wok over medium-high heat. Add the red-pepper flakes, and stir-fry for 15 seconds. Add the shrimp and stir-fry until pink and almost cooked through, about one minute. Add the carrots, and stir-fry for one minute. Stir in the white parts of the green onions. Add the rice, and stir-fry for two minutes or until heated through. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the soy sauce, fish sauce and sesame oil, and continue to stir-fry for one minute. Stir in the eggs and cashews.
