Shrimp and Egg Fried Rice

Shrimp and Egg Fried Rice

For best results when cooking fried rice, use cooked rice that has been refrigerated overnight. If you do not like the idea of overnight rice , you can also use freshly cooked rice which has been refrigerated for at least 2 hours in the fridge. Refrigerating the rice keeps the grains dry so that they won’t stick to each other during stir frying.


  • 1/2 + 2 tbsp cooking oil divided
  • 10 small prawns (shrimps) remove shells and veins* See Cooking Note below
  • 2 servings (about 200 grams) cooked white rice refrigerated overnight for best results
  • 2 egg lightly beaten & seasoned with 1 tsp of light soy sauce
  • 5 cloves of garlic minced
  • 3 shallots minced
  • 1/2 tsp chicken seasoning powder optional; to taste
  • 1/2 tsp salt to taste
  • chopped spring onions for garnish

* As a short cut, you can use frozen cooked prawns (thawed)


  1. Heat half tablespoon oil in wok. Stir fry prawns until just cooked. Set aside on a plate.
  2. Add remaining oil to the wok. Stir fry garlic & shallots until shallots are soft and translucent.
  3. Add rice and use the back of the frying spatula to flatten any rice lumps so that they are separated.
  4. Pour egg mixture evenly over the rice and stir fry the rice at high heat until the rice is somewhat dry. Season with chicken seasoning powder and salt, to taste. Top with the cooked prawns and garnish with chopped spring onions.

Cooking Note

To make the prawns crunchy, gently massage the peeled prawns in a bowl of cold water with 1 tsp of baking soda briefly. Rinse and pat dry on paper towels before use.

  3. 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?

  4. This is my kind of comfort food…love it!

  5. HI, may i know which type of rice did you use for this recipe? Many thanks!

  6. What can be used in place of chicken seasoning powder? Can i use garlic powder?

  7. 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?
