Restaurant-worthy egg fried rice at home? You bet! This easy rice with shrimp recipe makes it effortless. Fluffy grains, vibrant flavors, and zero takeout guilt. 

Ingredients – butter – eggs – shrimp – carrots – white onion – frozen peas – garlic – salt & pepper – cooked and chilled rice  – green onions – soy sauce – oyster sauce – toasted sesame oil

Add 2 tablespoon butter to the pan and heat until melted.

Add carrots, onion, peas, and garlic, and season with a generous pinch  of salt and pepper. Sauté for about 5 minutes or until the onion and  carrots are soft.

Toss in the shrimp and cook through until no longer pink (about 5 minutes).

Increase heat to high, add in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, and  stir until melted. Immediately add the rice, green onions, soy sauce,  and oyster sauce, and stir until combined.

Continue sautéing for an additional 3 minutes to fry the rice, stirring  occasionally.  (I like to let the rice rest for a bit between stirs so  that it can crisp up on the bottom.)

Then add in the eggs and stir to combine. Remove from heat, and stir in the sesame oil until combined. Taste and season with extra soy sauce, if needed. Enjoy!
