Let’s check out this easy and delicious Shrimp and Fried Rice recipe.

5-shrimp-and-fried-rice

This fried rice is soooo tasty that I had a hard time not snacking on it as I took the pictures.

And it never even made it into the fridge for leftovers because it was goobled up way too quick….by me.

This is a great one-dish meal that can be whipped up in no time and feel free to substitute the shrimp for chicken, beef, pork, or even leftover meat that you may have on hand.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Shrimp-and-Fried-Rice

Large raw deveined and shelled shrimp, cooked white rice, eggs, green peas, carrots, green onions, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, canola oil, salt and pepper.

Here’s how to make it:

1-cut-veggies

Chop the carrots and garlic.  Cut two green onions in about two inch size pieces.  Chop the remaining green onion (or slice it in long thin pieces) and set it aside for garnish.

Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and set aside.

2-add-canola-oil-to-pan

Heat a large skillet on medium heat and add the canola oil.

3-add-shrimp-to-pan

Add the shrimp to the pan.

4-add-salt-and-pepper

Then add the salt and pepper on each piece of shrimp.

5-cooking-shrimp

As soon as the shrimp starts to turn a white color on the bottom side (about 1 or 2 minutes), turn each piece over and cook the other side for about the same amount of time.  Then remove each piece of shrimp from the pan and set aside on a plate.

6-oil-in-pan

Keep the heat turned on, and also keep the oil in the pan.

7-add-carrots-and-rice

Then add the carrots and give them a stir.  Next, add the rice…

8-stir-rice-and-carrots

…and stir.

9-add-garlic-and-green-onion

Then add the garlic and onions, and stir.

10-add-sesame-oil

Drizzle the sesame oil over the rice and stir.

11-add-soy-sauce

Add the soy sauce and stir.  Continue stirring for about 4 minutes.

12-add-peas

Add the green peas and stir.  Then add the shrimp back in the pan and stir.

13-rice-in-sides-of-pan

Use a spoon to move the ingredients to the sides of the pan and create an open area in the middle.

14-egg-in-pan-with-rice

Pour the eggs in the middle of the pan and stir just the eggs as they’re cooking.  Try not to mix the eggs in with the other ingredients until they’re scrambled.  The dish looks best if the eggs are scrambled first before mixing them with the other ingredients.

15-stir-eggs-with-rice

Some of the ingredients will sneak in with the eggs while they’re cooking but no worries.

16-stir-eggs-with-rice

Once the eggs are scrambled, stir them in with the other ingredients.

17-shrimp-and-rice-in-pan

Serve warm right out of the skillet and garnish with the chopped or thinly sliced green onions.

    I have had Ziplist for awhile now, but what I need to know is how do I get my recipes on my Blog in a Ziplist and print mode? Do you post it in Ziplist first and copy onto your post? I use WordPress. Help!

      Hi Cindy, there were no changes on how I do the posts. Have you tried running your question by the folks at ZipList? There is a contact-us option at the bottom of their website. I hope this will help. And I just went over and visited your blog…that bacon shell taco is a work of art! Thank you for stopping by.

    This is great and easy! I always thought it would be harder to make. I used a bag of frozen veggies instead of just carrots and peas because that’s what I had on hand. It turned out great! Thanks!

      Hi Mara, I’m so glad you liked it and that it turned out great. The frozen veggies sound delish in this dish. Thank you for letting me know and have a great rest of the week!
