Homemade shrimp fried rice

Shrimp fried rice is a delicious and satisfying dish that you can easily prepare at home. Here’s a quick and simple recipe that your family and friends will love.


  • 2 cups of cooked white rice (preferably day-old)
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prepare the Rice: If you haven’t already, cook the rice and let it cool. For best results, use rice that has been refrigerated overnight.
  2. Cook the Shrimp: Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook until pink and opaque, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Sauté Aromatics: In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and sauté until fragrant and translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add Vegetables: Stir in the frozen peas and carrots, cooking until they are tender, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Cook the Eggs: Push the vegetables to one side of the skillet. Pour the beaten eggs into the other side and scramble them until fully cooked. Mix the scrambled eggs with the vegetables.
  6. Combine Everything: Add the cooked rice to the skillet, breaking up any clumps. Stir in the cooked shrimp. Pour in the soy sauce, oyster sauce (if using), and sesame oil. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  7. Season and Serve: Add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle the chopped green onions over the top and serve hot.


  • Day-Old Rice: Using day-old rice helps achieve the best texture for fried rice. Freshly cooked rice can be too soft and sticky.
  • Customize: Feel free to add other vegetables like bell peppers, corn, or bean sprouts for extra flavor and color.
  • Protein Alternatives: You can substitute shrimp with chicken, beef, or tofu for a different twist on this recipe.

Enjoy your homemade shrimp fried rice as a delightful and easy meal that’s perfect for any day of the week!
