5 cups


  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots

  • ½ cup frozen corn

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced, or more to taste

  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 4 cups cooked rice

  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions

  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce, or more to taste

  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste


  1. Heat sesame oil and olive oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and cook until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is opaque, about 3 minutes, flipping halfway through.

  2. Remove shrimp from the skillet using a slotted spoon, allowing oils and cooking juices to remain in the skillet. Place shrimp on a plate and set aside.

  3. Add peas and carrots and corn to the skillet and cook, stirring intermittently, until vegetables begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir for 1 minute. Push vegetables to the side of the skillet, pour eggs into the other side, and cook to scramble, stirring as necessary, 3 to 4 minutes.

  4. Stir shrimp, rice, and green onions into the skillet. Drizzle evenly with soy sauce, season with salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Cook until shrimp is reheated through, about 2 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Cooking time will vary based on size of shrimp. Don't overcook.
