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.

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.

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.

Great flavor for a such a quick recipe to throw together. I served it with Sticky Chicken by Lavender Lynn and it was a terrific combination. Due to the chicken, I didn't use the shrimp, but will in future versions of the recipe. Thanks Joy for a wonderful rice dish!

Made the rice to serve with Salt-And-Pepper Shrimp and it was very good. The soy sauce was a little strong for me but after adding a bit more white rice it was quite tasty after that. Made for the Chinese-Vietnamese New Year Tag Game.
