Shrimp and Egg Fried Rice
This is a recipe for shrimp and egg fried rice (虾仁蛋饭), a popular dish in Taiwan. I had my favourite Din Tai Fung’s version in mind when I made this. I think the results were not too shabby. It makes an easy one-dish meal with just a few ingredients.

P.S. One month ago, I had a sudden severe lower back injury and was literally bedridden for two weeks, which was why the blog was not updated. I wasn’t able to even sit up, let alone cook, take food pictures or use the laptop. I am recuperating now and back in action again :) I have to take good care of my back from now on.
This is my all time favourite! Love the plump shrimp.
you take care buddy! get well soon!
I can eat this non-stop, seriously!
How did you injure your lower back? I also have lower back problems. My hb too and his is worse. He always tells me his lower back issue is triggered by the smallest day-to-day action like bending down to pick up something, brushing teeth etc. Sigh…looks like lower back pain is very common.
Please take care, ya?
Thx, take care too, dear :)
This is my kind of comfort food…love it!
HI, may i know which type of rice did you use for this recipe? Many thanks!
I used short-grain rice (DTF also uses short-grain). However, it will work with long-grain rice, too.
Is this japanese short-grain or taiwan?
What about the water:rice ratio in order to have nice whole grain after cooking?
I’m using Japanese short-grain rice; ratio of 1:1 in the rice cooker.
What can be used in place of chicken seasoning powder? Can i use garlic powder?
you can use salt, mushroom seasoning powder, garlic salt or soy/oyster sauce. garlic powder is good for substituting the mince garlic if you don’t have fresh ones.
hi, if i use cooked frozen shrimp, do i have to still cook it as in first step, or just add it in with the rice?
