Egg & Shrimp Fried Rice

Shrimp, Prawns, Langoustines .. love them all !  And yes, I know what they eat ... 

A good fried rice is always welcome ...However, do not ask me to eat with those little sticks, I am honestly not even willing to give it a try, a fork is just fine by me ... even a spoon, if it comes to that.

Make the rice the day before or in the morning, if you can, and remember to defrost the Shrimp - when this is done, the dish takes 30 minutes or less to get on the table.

I used my electric wok, but any large pan will do.

Egg & Shrimp Fried Rice

1 TB Vegetable Oil
2 t Sesame Oil
1 t Garlic, crushed
1 t Ginger, crushed
1 packet Spring Onions, chopped finely
1 1/2 Handfuls Baby Marrow, grated
1 Large Carrot, peeled and grated
400g Shrimp, defrosted
3 TB Lemon Juice
3 TB Soy Sauce {I like the dark and thick}
3 cups Rice, cooked, cold
3 Eggs, beaten
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Sweet Chili Sauce, to serve {optional}

1.) Heat the Vegetable- and Sesame Oil in a large pan or wok - add the Garlic, Ginger, Spring Onions, Baby Marrow and Carrot - cook for 4 - 5 minutes over medium heat.
2.) Add the Shrimp, Lemon Juice and Soy Sauce - stir to mix - add the cold cooked Rice - stir through and heat.
3.) Move the ingredients already in the pan/wok to the side - add the beaten Eggs and scramble for a minute or two - stir everything through.
4.) Season with Salt and Pepper to taste.

Serve with Sweet Chili Sauce on the side {optional}


Linking up with these cool parties:


  1. I love fried rice. This recipe is a little different than mine, I'm going to give it a try.

  2. Fried rice is one of my go to meals when I don't feel like cooking because it is so quick! As long as I make the rice early enough to refrigerate it, it's all good :) Pinning to try your version!

  3. Yum. I usually make chicken but lately my husband has branched out and will eat shrimp so can't wait to give this a try

  4. This is how you make fried rice! Someone taught you well!!
