Homemade shrimp egg fried rice


Vietnamese version (bản tiếng Việt): click here!

Another fried rice recipe is here! This time is a little bit fancy as we have Shrimp egg fried rice. The reason behind this recipe is that we move an area where it’s hard to find an Asian/Vietnamese restaurant nearby. So we have to make it ourselves. We made it even better than restaurants! The gangs just love it so much.

And wow… this is also my first recipe about shrimps! Can’t believe that the blog has been here for a while and there haven’t been any posts about shrimps 😳 😤! So let’s do it! (What have I done with all the shrimps I had though…? 🤔 🫥 🤷🏻‍♀️)

Ingredients: (for 4 servings)


Total time: 20-25 minutes

And that’s it for this recipe! Do you like the photos attached in the post? Let me know then and hope you enjoy this simple recipe!

  • 10-15 counts Shrimps large size
  • 3-4 Whole eggs
  • Leftover cooked rice from 1.5 cups of raw rice prepared a day before
  • 1/2 Shallot
  • 8 cloves Garlic
  • 2 tbsp Cooking oil


  • 1 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Oyster sauce
  • 1/4 tsp Mushroom bouillon powder (or M.S.G)
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp Sesame oil
  • Spring onions, cilantro and fried shallot as garnish optional


  • At least 1 day before, cook the rice. If you don’t have a rice cooker, please refer to this helpful post: How to cook rice without a rice cooker?.
  • Since my shrimps are frozen so in this step, I need to defrost them. If you have fresh shrimps with shell on, peel the shell off the shrimps. Then dice them to bite-size pieces.
  • Roughly chop shallot and garlic.
  • In a small bowl, beat in 3-4 eggs and whisk till homogenized. Optionally, add a pinch of salt and sprinkle some black pepper.
  • Place a large wok (or a large pan/pot) on medium-high heat, heat up the wok and add 2 tablespoons of cooking oil. When the oil is hot, add shallot and garlic and stir until fragrant.
  • Add the beaten eggs and stir constantly until solid. Then add the diced shrimps and stir till cook (Take around 10 minutes in total). You can set aside the cooked eggs prior cooking the shrimps.
  • Add the leftover cooked rice to the wok and mix well to incorporate. Use the spatula (or a ladle) to break up the large rice clumps.
  • In a small bowl, combine all the soy sauce, oyster sauce, seasoning powder (or M.S.G) and honey/sugar then pour the sauce mixture to the wok, followed by mixing and tossing well so that every rice grain, every part of the fried rice has the seasoning.
  • Turn off the heat, add sesame oil and sprinkle some ground black pepper on top, make a quick mix and the shrimp egg fried rice is ready to be served.
  • Top with some roughly chopped spring onions, cilantro and fried shallot (optional) then enjoy!
