Shrimp Fried Rice

I always love fried rice. When I was in the Philippines, where I seldom cook because I was "spoiled", my sister always requests for me to cook garlic fried rice because that was what I was good at! I don't want to sound conceited but I can make a good fried rice.

Anyway, I seldom cook fried rice here because I don't have left over! The secret to a very good fried rice is making sure that you use a day old left over rice. Freshly cooked rice will make the fried rice mushy.

left over rice
green onion (minced)
soysauce or fish sauce

  • Heat oil in the wok and cook shrimp. Set aside.
  • With the remaining oil cook egg. Set aside and sliced.
  • Using a bigger wok, heat oil and saute garlic and green onions. Add rice. Cook until you can hear the rice sizzle.
  • Season with soysauce ( I prefer fish sauce). Add carrots and peas. Cook until veggies are halfway done.
  • Add shrimps and egg. Mixed well and season with pepper.
  • Cook until rice is really hot and serve.
Note: Don't stir the rice too much.
