The Best Homemade Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe

Let’s be real, it’s not a complete Chinese takeout dinner without a side of fried rice. And while I love to make my cauliflower fried rice for a low-carb option, this shrimp fried rice is where it’s at. It’s the perfect balance of diced veggies, scrambled eggs, rice, and juicy, wok-seared shrimp.

You can serve this as a side if you’ve got plenty of other dishes on the table. But for me, a big bowl of shrimp fried rice is quite satisfying on its own (yes, it’s that good). So the next time you’re craving some homemade Asian food – know that this recipe will always hit the spot!

What’s In This Shrimp Fried Rice?

There’s lots of ways to make fried rice, with various recipes using BBQ pork, Chinese sausage, chicken, or even diced scallops. But the classic foundation is a combination of rice, eggs, veggies, and a few other savory ingredients. So here’s my take on it, using shrimp as the main protein.

  • Shrimp: I find that medium-sized shrimp (frozen or fresh) are the perfect size for a solid balance between ingredients.
  • Vegetables: For this recipe, I’m sticking with the classics – peas, carrots, onion, green onion, garlic, and ginger. But I’m using frozen peas and carrots to make the recipe super easy!
  • Eggs: Softly scrambled eggs are must in fried rice, as little bits of egg coat the other ingredients.
  • Rice: I’m using long-grain white rice, but you could use brown rice as well. Just make sure it’s day-old, chilled rice, and not warm, fresh rice. The latter will get too soft and sticky.
  • Soy Sauce & Toasted Sesame Oil: This is the ultimate savory combo that will give the rice a ton of flavor. And if you’re gluten-free, tamari soy sauce is the way to go.

Generally, fresh catches of the day are best in terms quality. But often times, they can be expensive and not everyone lives close to a coastline. That’s why I’m all for grabbing a bag of wild frozen shrimp for this recipe.

Either way, look for medium-sized shrimp that are peeled, deveined, and with tails removed. The more they are pre-prepped, the easier (and faster) it will be to make this shrimp fried rice!
