  • Difficulty: easy
  • Recipe type: entree, side dish, main course


  • 4 cups cooked rice – white (jasmine), brown long grain rice or instant rice – made a day ahead – leftover rice is perfect
  • ½ lb. shrimp large shrimp– peeled, deveined and tails removed – cut in half, if desired
  • 1 ½ Tbs. oyster sauce
  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 Tbs. peanut or vegetable oil – more if needed
  • 4 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions –green part only– about 2 stalks
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots – thawed
  • 1 ½ tsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Note: In the video I made a half recipe, so when you make the full recipe there will a lot more in your pan or wok


  1. Place rice on a plate, spread out and break up any clumps with your fingers. Set aside.
  2. Season the shrimp with the salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the oyster sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil and set aside.
  4. Heat a wok or large sauté pan on medium high. Add a little vegetable oil and heat, swirling to coat the pan. Pour in the eggs, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula to scramble the eggs. Cook just until set, but slightly runny is ok. They will finish cooking later. Remove the eggs from the pan to a plate and set aside. Wipe the pan if necessary, to remove any cooked eggs, so they don’t burn.
  5. Add about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the hot pan and swirl to coat. When the oil is hot, add the shrimp and cook for about 30 seconds to a minute on each side, until almost cooked through. Remove from the pan to plate and set aside.
  6. Add about another tablespoon of vegetable oil to the pan and then add the chopped onions. Cook and stir occasionally, until softened and slightly brown around the edges, about 3 minutes.
  7. Add the minced ginger and garlic to the pan. Stir constantly and cook for about 30 seconds, until fragrant.
  8. Add about another tablespoon of vegetable oil to the pan, swirl to coat and then add the rice. Stir to thoroughly combine with onion mixture.. Spread the rice out over the bottom of the pan and allow it to cook for about 1-2 minutes to heat through and give it chance to fry and then toss the rice and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Reduce heat if necessary to prevent the rice from sticking to the pan or burning.
  9. Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce and sesame oil mixture. Mix thoroughly to combine and coat the rice and then add the peas and carrots and mix through.
  10. Break the scrambled eggs into pieces with a spoon or spatula and then add them to the pan, along with the shrimp and mix through. Allow the rice to cook for about another 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until everything is well heated and shrimp are cooked through.
  11. Stir in the sliced green onions and serve immediately. Enjoy! Recipe by: Diane Kometa
