Shrimp Fried Rice

Prep time: 15 MinCook time: 10 MinTotal time: 25 Min


  • 4 cups Jasmine Rice, cooked and a day or two old
  • 1/2 pound Shrimp, peeled, deveined and chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 1 cup Scallions, chopped
  • 1 cup Cilantro, chopped
  • 3 Eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 Lime, juiced
  • 2 TB Soy Sauce
  • 1 TB Fish Sauce
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Kosher Salt


  1. Sauté shrimp in a little vegetable oil on medium-high heat, with a splash of the soy sauce, for about 30 seconds. (The shrimp will finish cooking with the rice later.)
  2. Remove the shrimp, wipe out the pan, and add in a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil.
  3. Flatten the rice in a single layer in the pan and season with salt.
  4. Leave the rice alone, and once it starts to turn lightly golden, begin tossing it around.
  5. Push the rice to the sides of the pan to create a hole in the center, drizzle in a little more oil, then pour in the eggs.
  6. Add the garlic to the eggs and scramble.
  7. Add shrimp back in along with the remaining soy sauce, fish sauce, lime juice, scallions and cilantro.
  8. Toss everything together until the shrimp are fully cooked.
