Sesame oil in this makes a unique flavor and it’s simple and quick to prepare, served with Chinese dish. Leftovers are yummy served as a cold rice salad.

What a great basic fried rice. This was supposed to be for dinner with DD so I didn't use shrimp. I used brown rice and added mushrooms and peas. The possibilities for variations is endless.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make omelet with egg; cut in strips and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in wok; add the sesame oil and garlic and stir quickly. Do not let it brown.
  3. Add the rice, and stir in the onions, shrimps, and omelet.
  4. Add the Soya sauce, stirring all the time.
  5. Can be made ahead and reheated in the microwave for a few minutes. Really nice with Chinese as a change from serving with noodles.
  6. Great as a leftover--either reheated or served cold. It goes down well with barbecues too.
