Easy Homemade Shrimp Fried Rice For Chinese New Year!

  • Add rice and mix thoroughly to incorporate scallions, breaking up any clumps. Spread rice evenly throughout pan. Note: some grains of rice may “pop”. Allow rice to “fry” without stirring for 1-2 minutes, then stir rice and allow to “fry” for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Add 1½ tbsp. soy sauce, sesame oil and salt and stir until fully incorporated.
  • Add peas, scallions, eggs and shrimp to rice and gently mix in. Heat for 1-2 minutes or until all ingredients are heated thoroughly and rice is sizzling.  Add remaining soy sauce if needed.
  • Notes
    Our “cheat” on this recipe is using frozen cooked peeled and deveined shrimp. Thaw according to directions and simply cut into bite-size pieces. If you want to use raw shrimp, fry your raw peeled and deveined shrimp in Step 2 until opaque (about 1-2 minutes/side). You can either cut shrimp into bite-size pieces when cool enough to handle or add in whole in Step 6.
