Discover the joy of creating a delicious and quick shrimp stir-fry rice in your own kitchen. This dish combines succulent shrimp with colorful veggies and fluffy rice, all tossed together in a savory sauce that’s sure to tantalize your taste buds. Perfect for a busy weeknight or a relaxing weekend meal, this homemade version of a takeout favorite is both satisfying and nutritious.



  1. Warm a blend of sesame and olive oil in a spacious nonstick skillet or wok set over a medium-high flame. Toss in the shrimp and sear them until they turn a vivid pink and are no longer translucent in the center, which should take roughly 3 minutes, making sure to turn them once at the halfway point.
  2. Employing a slotted spoon, transfer the shrimp to a plate, letting the residual oils and juices stay behind in the skillet.
  3. To the same skillet, introduce the peas, carrots, and corn, sautéing and occasionally stirring, until the vegetables start to tenderize, which should take about 2 minutes. Stir in the minced garlic and continue to cook for another minute. Shift the vegetables to one side of the skillet and pour the beaten eggs into the cleared space, scrambling them for about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring when needed.
  4. Fold in the previously cooked shrimp, rice, and sliced green onions with the vegetable and egg mixture. Evenly sprinkle soy sauce over the skillet’s contents, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything thoroughly to ensure the flavors meld. Continue to cook just until the shrimp is thoroughly warmed, which should take no more than 2 minutes.


  • – For best results, use day-old rice as it fries better and doesn’t clump.
    – Feel free to add other vegetables of your choice to the stir-fry.
