Ingredients for Shrimp Fried Rice:

  • Used 20-24 count or 26-30 count RAW shelled and deveined shrimp.
  • DO NOT SKIP the sesame oil which makes it taste like authentic Chinese fried rice.
  • Add more soy sauce at the end to taste – it’s better to add it later than to overdo it early on. I usually add 1/2 to 1 Tbsp more at the end.

Pro Tips for Making Fried Rice:

1. Start with cold cooked rice. Leftover rice is best but I have been known to cook and chill a pot of white rice to satisfy fierce cravings for fried rice! Do not use fresh, warm rice or it will become sticky and gooey when it hits the pan.

2. Cook over high heat. Fried rice is supposed to cook quickly over high heat so give your pan a chance to heat up before adding your ingredients. Also, give the ingredients time to sizzle and resist the urge to stir constantly.

3. Add ingredients to the pan separately and in the order listed. If you try putting everything in the pan at once, you will cool the pan too quickly and your fried rice will fail.

4. Add soy sauce and sesame oil to taste. Depending on how your rice was cooked (with or without salt) or if you use low sodium soy sauce, you will likely need to add more soy sauce and sesame oil.

How to Make Rice for Fried Rice:

Leftover chilled white rice is best, but If you don’t have leftover white rice, you can make it ahead, but be sure to rinse the rice until water runs clear prior to cooking to remove the extra starch.

Cook according to package instructions then cool to room temperature, spread rice into a casserole dish or baking sheet and refrigerate until chilled. This will help dry out the rice so it doesn’t turn gummy on the skillet.

We love Jasmine rice, but medium or long grain rice will work.

Can I make Gluten Free and Soy Free Fried Rice?

Yes! Rice is gluten free, so you really just need to make sure your soy sauce is gluten free like this Tamari soy sauce.

If you want it to be soy free, try using coconut aminos. I use this coconut aminos product for our family and you need a little more since it contains less salt, but it works really well.
