  • 150 g long grain rice
  • 200 g shrimp precooked
  • half of one chili pepper
  • 30 g chopped fresh ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3 scallions
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • salt, pepper to taste


  • The first step will be to get rice cooked. Rinse rice thoroughly under running water and cover it with water in a pot (1 cup of rice = 2 cups of water). Use medium heat for cooking. It will take you around 15 minutes to boil the grain (the exact time for the type of rice you have check the package for a guide). Do not overcook and check that all the fluid will be absorbed.
  • Prepare all the ingredients for stir-frying. Cut chili pepper (I prefer to use big slices to make it visible, if you like your meals spicy, leave the seeds in); grate ginger using fine grater, press garlic and chop scallion.
  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger, chili pepper and scallion. Cook them by stirring often in the skillet, about 2 minutes.
  • If you use whole shrimps like me, first you need to peel them. Peeled precooked shrimps add to the skillet and cook for 1 minute.
  • Stir in precooked rice and soy sauce with sesame oil and cook for additional 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste after you add soy sauce.
  • You can serve shrimp fried rice immediately. Enjoy your meal!
