How to make Easy Shrimp Fried Rice

Step 1: After cleaning the shrimps, devein them and season with salt and pepper. Then, toss with cornstarch.

Step 2: In a small bowl, beat the eggs and set them aside.

Step 3: In a large skillet, heat the sesame oil and canola oil. Add the shrimp to the hot pan and cook until pink. When done, set the cooked shrimps aside on a plate.

Step 4: If needed, add more oil to the skillet. Then, add the green onions and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring. Now, add the rice along with the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and turmeric (if using). Continue to cook and stir until heated through.

Step 5: Push the rice aside to make a space in the centre of the skillet, then pour the beaten egg into the pan. Cook further and stir everything.

Step 6: To the skillet, add the peas, carrots, and corn (you can use frozen). Stir and let everything heat through.

Step 7: Lastly, add the shrimp. Toss and continue to cook until everything is heated through. This takes another 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 8: Serve immediately. Enjoy!


For best results, use rice that’s already cooked. Keep the cooked rice in the fridge overnight.
