This recipe is fast, straightforward, and of course, exceptionally delicious. So, strap in, let’s dive right into it.


  • 2 cups of one-day-old rice
  • 1 pound of cleaned and deveined shrimp
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 large egg
  • A medley of your favorite veggies (peas, carrots, bell peppers)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of Creole seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon of minced ginger


  1. Let’s start by adding some spice to our shrimp. Sprinkle the Creole seasoning and onion powder over your shrimp. Mix it all together and let it marinate for a bit while we move to the next step.
  2. Grab a bowl, crack open your egg, and whisk it using a fork. Once done, set it aside for later use.
  3. Pour a tablespoon of olive oil into a hot skillet. Once the oil is heated, scramble your egg in it until it’s fully cooked, then take it out and set it aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of olive oil. When it’s hot, gently place your shrimp in the pan. Sauté each side of the shrimp for 1-2 minutes or until they turn a beautiful pink. Take care not to overcook them, though – nobody enjoys rubbery shrimp!
  5. Once your shrimp is perfectly cooked, set it aside. We’ll need it again soon. (
  6. It’s time for our veggies! In the same skillet, pour in two tablespoons of olive oil and add your veggies and onions. Sauté them until the onions become translucent, which should take about 2-3 minutes.
  7. Now, let’s add our minced garlic and ginger to the skillet. Sauté them until the garlic turns a lovely golden brown.
  8. At this point, it’s time to add your one-day-old rice to the mix. Gradually stir in your dark soy sauce, paying close attention to the color change of your fried rice.
  9. Now, reintroduce the seasoned shrimp into the pan. Mix it well so the flavors distribute evenly.
  10. Add the scrambled egg to the skillet. Stir everything together, making sure the ingredients blend seamlessly.
  11. Here’s a little secret ingredient to elevate your fried rice – a few pinches of sugar! It adds a subtle but delightful flavor to your dish.
  12. Finally, season with a sprinkle of ground black pepper, and salt to taste if necessary.

There you have it, your very own homemade, restaurant-quality fried rice, ready in under 30 minutes! Perfect for when you crave that restaurant experience but want to stay home. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out.
