Shrimp Fried Rice

 One Pan Easy and Quick Shrimp Fried Rice with garlic, chili, and green onion. A savory option for lunch and dinner. Why not Breakfast? Any time of the day is just perfect for this inviting meal.

In a Chinese restaurant, this is always stable in the menu or buffet. I will never choose any other meal over this, NO WAY! This recipe is so quick and works perfectly with overnight or day old boiled rice. Something about the overnight sweetness I can’t explain. I am not saying that you cannot use same-day boiled rice, that will work just fine. Chinese fried rice is also the perfect meal prep idea.

Recipe Ingredients and Variations.

  • Shrimp: Already cooked or raw shrimp can be used. For the raw shrimp, make sure you wash it thoroughly, peel and devein it. Any type of shrimp works just fine, whether small, large, or jumbo.
  • Eggs: One of the important ingredients and acts as protein. Must be scrambled and cooked well.
  • Cooked Rice: Leftover rice is the best or overnight boiled rice, this is because it’s grainy when cold and not mushy.
  • Light and Dark Soy Sauce: I used low sodium for both, adding taste and flavor. If you don’t have both, use either of them.
  • Garlic: Adds a deep flavor and kick to this delicacy.
  • Green Onions and Onions: Cook some and save some of the green onion for garnishing. Use both the green and white part of the green onion.
  • Oil and Sesame oil: This is used to cook the shrimp and to fry the rice. Sesame oil adds a very good and inviting flavor to this dish.

Storage Tips:

This is best eaten immediately, but any leftovers can be stored in the;

  • Fridge for 3-5 days in a sealed container.
  • Freeze for up to 3 months, then thaw in the fridge then microwave for a few minutes.
