I love shrimp fried rice and this is a quick and easy recipe to make - if you make the rice the night ahead! I've never had a problem with soggy rice this way - cold rice works the best. I found the original recipe too salty, so I cut the salt in half and use only 1 1/2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Everyone can always add more later to taste. Add the bean sprouts in step 3 as others have suggested. I also agree that the dish is better if the eggs are(partially) precooked. Here's what I do: When it comes time to add the eggs, move the rice/shrimp to the sides of your wok/skillet (be sure to use a large one) making a well in the middle. Pour in the eggs w/ salt and pepper, scramble after they've begun to set, and then mix with the rice/shrimp. This saves messing up another pan! (One trick I retained from another, not so good, fried rice recipe.) If you want to use small shrimp, add it later to avoid overcooking. Sometimes I substitute brown rice for white.

Absolutely delicious and easy to prepare. Very flavorful!! The only thing I would do different is add more shrimp and use less soy was a little salty for my taste.



This shrimp fried rice recipe was very simple to follow, a breeze to make, and makes a very flavorful dish! The recipe's simple nature allows the cook the flexibility of adding other ingredients if they so desire. In my batch of rice, I added peas, extra bean sprouts, and cooked the eggs prior to adding them to the rice. With my next batch I will saute my (yellow) onions with the uncooked rice first prior to adding the water. This will add flavor to the rice itself, and make the rice fluffier. Overall, it's a real crowd pleaser, and maintains its flavor the next day! Try it!
