  • 2 cups uncooked jasmine rice

  • 3 cups water

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

  • 1 sweet onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed and minced

  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen peas and carrots

  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided

  • 2 eggs

  • 4 tablespoons oyster sauce

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 lemon, juiced, divided

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

Yum Yum Sauce:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons paprika

  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste

  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bring 3 cups water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Set aside and let cool.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Mix in cooked jasmine rice and frozen peas-carrot mixture; fry until rice begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons butter and stir to combine. Pour in eggs and cook until firm. Add oyster sauce, soy sauce, and 1/2 lemon juice; stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a separate pan over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and fry until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Mix in remaining 2 tablespoons butter and lemon juice. Combine with fried rice mixture.

  4. Combine mayonnaise, water, paprika, ginger paste, white sugar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl to make the yum yum sauce. Stir well. Serve with the fried rice.
