"This was a great and easy recipe to make. I made the rice a few hours before and had it in the fridge till I was ready for it and it still worked out. I didn't add the shrimp as this was a side dish for another protein. Also we aren't fans of peas so I put in some frozen corn instead. This is a really adaptable recipe and you can add/remove so many different ingredients depending on your tastes. This is a keeper for sure!"- punkie569

Top-ranked recipe named "The Best Fried Rice"
1. Flake the rice so that the grains do not stick together. Set aside.
2. Combine the shrimps with the salt and let stand 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly in cold water and pat dry.
3. Heat the oil in a wok or skillet until it is almost smoking and add the shrimp, if raw. Cook stirring quickly and turning them in the oil until they turn pink, about 3 seconds. Remove to a sieve.
4. Return the oil to the wok, and add garlic and ham. Cook just to heat through, stirring. Add the rice, stirring rapidly, and cook until thoroughly heated without browning.
5. Do the following quickly: make a well in the center of the rice and add the eggs, stirring constantly. When they have a soft-scrambled consistency, start incorporating the rice, stirring in a circular fashion.
6. Add the peas and the salt, stirring. Stir in the oyster sauce and the cooked shrimps, tossing the rice over and over to blend everything. Stir in the bean sprouts and cook stirring and tossing, about 30 seconds. Add the scallions and serve immediately.

mogriff1 1 year agoVery tasty, I used a mixture of white and Jasmine rice which I cooked and refrigerated earlier. I also added sesame oil to the peanut oil.

danaellis 1 year agoMy results were ok, but I think it might have been more due to my rice type than the recipe itself. I omitted the shrimp because I'm not a fan of shellfish, so if you follow the recipe exactly and use white instead of brown rice, it might be better
duneoaks 1 year agoLoved it--a little too salty!

sunnygal 1 year agoVery tasty and easy stir fry. Left eggs out (my preference), used smoked ham,otherwise followed recipe and the flavors were perfectly blended and very tasty. Will make when I have a hankering for Asian.
Charmcity 2 years agoFantastic!! Everyone was very happy. I especially liked the ham in it. This is a great dish and can be served on its own as the main course. - I would add scallions on top next time around.

dakotarussell 2 years agoGreat fried rice recipe, I'll be using it from here on out. I velveted some chicken and subbed it in for the shrimp, it was equally delicious.
