Shrimp Fried Rice recipe, Filipino Recipes

Prep: 15 mins.  Cooking: 10 mins.  Serves 4.


  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • 4 scallions, cut into short diagonals
  • 9 oz  piece ham, cut into thin strips
  • 2 tbs peanut oil
  • 2 tbs lard (optional)
  • 1 1/3 cups long-grain rice, cooked and cooled
  • 1/4 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 9 oz cooked shrimp, peeled

Season eggs with salt and pepper and cook in heated 1 tablespoon oil in a wok, pulling set egg towards center and tilting to allow unset egg run to edges.  When almost set, break up egg so it resembles scrambled eggs.  Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Heat remaining oil and lard in a wok, swirling to coat base and sides.  Add onion and stir-fry over high heat until it turns translucent.  Add ham and stir-fry for 1 minute, then add rice and peas and stir-fry for another 3 minutes.  Add egg, soy sauce, scallion, and shrimp.  Heat through and serve immediately.
