This recipe for Shrimp Fried Rice is highly reactionary – where have all my take-out spots gone?! As much as I enjoy ordering in, greatness starts at home. With this recipe you won’t have to worry about anyone skimping on the shrimp. 😆 Besides, what were you really going to do with all that leftover rice?

Recommendation: This bamboo spatula makes turning and fluffing your rice easier.



  • Use leftover white rice if you happen to have it on hand.
  • The additives are fully customizable, switch out mixed veggies for your favorite variety.
  • Season shrimp with a dash each of Chinese 5 spice, white pepper, and kosher salt; set aside.
  • Use ground ginger instead of fresh if needed but cut the amount to ½ tsp.
