Chinese Style Shrimp Fried Rice
You can find many types of fried rice dishes all throughout Asia, but I wanted to post a chinese-style fried rice recipe after getting inspired by a battle cooking show. I used shrimp, but you can add the meat of your choice. Char-siu works well with this fried rice recipe too. The key to this recipe is adding the green onion last, and cooking at a very high heat!
This recipe makes about 2 servings
- 1 large bowl cooked rice (cook 1 cup of rice)
- 1/4 lbs shrimp (about 13 large shrimp)
- 3 eggs
- 2 green onion (chopped)
- 1 cup of petite mixed vegetables
- 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
- 5 tablespoon peanut oil (2 for the shrimp and 3 for the rice)
- Prep the ingredients. Beat 3 eggs and put aside.
- Chop green onion and put aside. Peel shrimp and season with salt.
- Heat wok. When wok is super hot, add 2 tbsp peanut oil. When oil is hot, add shrimp and stir until shrimp is cooked. Drain oil and put aside.
- Re-heat wok. Make sure it’s really hot and then add 3 tbsp peanut oil. When oil is hot, add the beaten eggs and stir until halfway cooked. Add rice when eggs are half way cooked and stir well. Stir until the rice grains are separated and fluffy.
- Add 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon salt and stir. Add petite mixed vegetables and shrimp and keep stirring. Add 1 teaspoon oyster sauce and stir again.
- Finally, add the chopped green onion and stir for about a minute. Serve with hot chili paste if desired.
