Cuisine Chinese


  • 2 cups cooked rice preferably day-old rice for the best texture
  • 200 g fresh shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 Chinese sausages lap cheong, thinly sliced
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 green onion chopped for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce adjust to taste
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: peas diced carrots, or any preferred vegetables for extra color and nutrition


Prep the Ingredients:

  • Make sure the shrimp are clean, peeled, and deveined. Slice the Chinese sausages thinly. If using additional vegetables, dice them into small pieces.

Cook the Shrimp and Sausage:

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook until they turn pink and are just cooked through. Remove them from the pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan, add the Chinese sausage slices. Cook until they start to brown and release their oils. Remove and set aside with the shrimp.

Scramble the Eggs:

  • In the same pan, add the beaten eggs. Let them set for a few seconds before scrambling. Once cooked, remove the eggs from the pan and chop them into small pieces.

Sauté the Aromatics:

  • Add the remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil to the pan. Sauté the garlic and onion until they're soft and fragrant.

Fry the Rice:

  • Add the cooked rice to the pan. Break up any clumps and stir well to mix with the aromatics. Fry for a few minutes until the rice is heated through.

Combine Everything:

  • Return the cooked shrimp, Chinese sausage, and scrambled eggs to the pan with the rice. Add any additional vegetables at this point. Stir everything together well.


  • Season the fried rice with soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper. Adjust the seasoning to your taste.

Garnish and Serve:

  • Just before serving, sprinkle the chopped green onion over the fried rice for a fresh contrast.


  • Serve your Shrimp and Chinese Sausage Fried Rice hot, either as a satisfying main dish or as part of a larger meal.
