You have probably tried this recipe multiple times at a Chinese restaurant, or other places. However, making this classic dish at home is guaranteed to beat any takeouts! 

Shrimp Fried Rice recipe is made with fresh shrimp, rice, green onions, peas, carrots, and sesame oil. It is a classic dinner dish that is ready in about 20 minutes!

The secret in making the best-fried rice is by using leftover rice which was chilled in the refrigerator. Fresh rice might get mushy if used right away. Therefore, it is best to use the chilled version. Also, it will save you extra time, as you do not need to cook it right away. 

You will need the ingredients listed below. However, keep in mind that you could swap some ingredients based on what you like. This is a very versatile recipe, so feel free to experiment. 

Shrimp, shelled and deveined

Leftover rice

Vegetable oil

Eggs, beaten

Green onion

 Veggies, such as peas, green beans,green pepper and carrots

Soy sauce

Garlic (optional)

Salt and pepper.

Steps on how to cook it

Cook the shrimp: Over medium-high heat, add some oil to a skillet. Then, stir in some minced garlic for about 30 seconds. Add the shrimp, and cook until just pink and opaque. Do not overcook them. Once done, remove shrimp with a slotted spoon, and set aside.

Add the veggies and egg: Next, stir in the veggies, and cook for a few minutes, until soft. Push vegetables to one side of the skillet, add the eggs to the other side, and cook to scramble, stirring as necessary.

Add the rice: Lastly, add the rice, green onion, and shrimp back to the skillet. Stir to combine. Evenly drizzle with soy sauce, and season with salt and pepper. 

Serve: Enjoy it warm, and garnish with some more chopped green onion or sesame seeds.
