Shrimp and Fried Rice

This will have you coming back for more.

Shrimp and Fried Rice

Fried rice is actually quick and easy to make and when adding shrimp to the mix, it’s all done in one skillet.

Less pans to wash is a good thing.

I especially like that this fried rice has the delicious flavor of fried rice in a restaurant from cooking it in soy sauce.  

It’s also made with fresh chopped carrots and diced garlic for more flavor.

Fried rice is so good with peas in it and the peas also add a pretty color contrast to the overall dish.

I used frozen peas which seem to hold their shape nicely when getting tossed around in the cooking process.

Shrimp and Fried Rice

And the shrimp and fried rice served together are a match made in heaven.

Large raw peeled shrimp are used in this recipe.

Here are more recipes with shrimp you may like “Mango and Orange Honey Walnut Shrimp“, “Chipotle Shrimp Guacamole” and “Tempura Shrimp with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce“.

The tails are left on the shrimp because they look so pretty that way in the dish and can be a finger food too.

But feel free to remove the tails if preferred.

This shrimp and fried rice makes a wonderful one-dish meal that can be whipped up in no time.

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, frozen green peas, carrots, green onions, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, canola oil, salt and pepper

printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

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 canola oil.

3-add-shrimp-to-pan

To the pan, add the shrimp.

4-add-salt-and-pepper

Top each shrimp with salt and pepper.

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.

When the shrimp are thoroughly cooked transfer them from the pan on to a plate and set aside.

6-oil-in-pan

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

7-add-carrots-and-rice

To the pan, add chopped carrots and stir.

Next, add the rice…

8-stir-rice-and-carrots

…and stir.

9-add-garlic-and-green-onion

Then add garlic and onions, and stir.

10-add-sesame-oil

Drizzle sesame oil over the rice and stir.

11-add-soy-sauce

To the pan add soy sauce and stir.

Continue stirring for about 4 minutes.

12-add-peas

To the pan, add frozen 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 to create an open area in the middle.

14-egg-in-pan-with-rice

Pour beaten 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.

TIP – 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 chopped or thinly sliced green onions.

18-shrimp-and-rice-in-pan

Then it’s time to dig in.

It’s so good.

  1.

  1. 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!

  2. OMG, that looks delish!!!! I love shrimp but have never had the courage to try and cook some….maybe I’ll be brave, lol.

  3. 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.

  4. Yum Yum yum!
