2/3 cup rice, long grain 120 g
1/2 cup frozen peas 60 g
1 eggs size large, beaten
1 1/2 tbsp canola oil 23 mL
20 shrimp, small 110 g
1/2 onions, finely chopped 100 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Cook the rice. Cook the peas, still frozen, by plunging them 3-4 min in a small pot of boiling salted water. Drain them, then set aside. In a small bowl, beat the egg, then set aside.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, stir the shrimp. Cook, with some stirring, until the shrimp lose its gray colour and turn pink, 3-4 min. Remove from the pan, using a slotted spoon, and transfer to a plate.
  3. Add the onion and sauté 2-3 min until it becomes translucent. Add the rice then stir-fry 2 min, breaking up the rice with a wooden spoon.
  4. Make a well in the rice, exposing the bottom of the skillet. Add the remaining oil then stir in the egg. Immediately stir-fry to incorporate the egg throughout the rice, until the egg is almost cooked through, 1-2 min. Put the shrimp back into the skillet. Stir in the peas, season with salt, and pepper then stir-fry 1-2 min until it is heated through.
  5. Serve on the warmed dishes.

This was easy to make but extremely bland. I did add garlic, as per another reviewer's comment, but taste-wise it didn't do anything for me. I would make it again, but add more to it, perhaps more vegetables and cook the rice in vegetable broth and spices before stir-frying it.

Good! It lived up to expectation. I used small pre-cooked shrimp and added them in the end only, making this dish even easier because you skip step 2.

In making this recipe I was afraid that the taste would be a little bland, so I added some chopped celery as I added the onions, and towards the end of cooking I added some chopped scallions and a few drops of soya sauce. My husband loved it!

I sauteed 2 cloves of garlic with the shrimp, and then added a bit of soy sauce to the whole thing when it was finished - and it was really good. Surprisingly filling.
