"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."

Ready In:




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

  1. 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.
  2. Great flavor for a such a quick recipe to throw together. I served it with Recipe #257794 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!
  3. Made the rice to serve with recipe#232288 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.
  4. This makes a lovely side dish to any Chinese meal. The sesame oil adds such a nice touch. I didn't add the prawns because I like my rice to be plain or rather plain when served with a lovely vegetable or meat dish.


We now reside back in England after returning from Australia after most of our working life there. I have been fortunate enough to have lived in many countries when I was younger and therefore many of my recipes reflect this! Love to cook. love to travel too
