  • 1 generous drizzle rice wine
  • 2 to 3 cups cooked rice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 heaping tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 heaping tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seed oil


  • Rinse and drain the shrimps. Cut off the heads (you may use them to make shrimp broth). Shell and devein the bodies.
  • Toss the shelled and deveined shrimps with a few pinches of salt and pepper
  • Peel and mince the garlic.
  • Finely slice the scallions. Divide into two portions.

  • Cut the cauliflower and broccoli into small florets. 
  • Heat the cooking oil in a wok or frying pan.
  • Pour in the beaten eggs. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook just until set. Scoop out and move to the chopping board. Finely slice or roughly chop.
  • Reheat the oil to smoking point. Sear the shrimps, about 15 seconds on each sides. Scoop out and set aside.
  • Reheat the oil over medium heat. Saute the garlic and one portion of scallions for about half a minute. 
  • Turn up the heat. Add the chopped carrot, broccoli and cauliflower florets. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss a few times ti lightly sear. Pour in the rice wine. Cook the vegetables until the liquid has evaporated, about one minute.
  • Return the shrimps to the pan. Toss. Cook just until heated through.
  • Add the rice to the shrimps and vegetables. Pour in the soy, oyster and hoisin sauces. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Stir fry just until the rice is heated through.
  • Turn off the heat. Add the eggs to the fried rice. Drizzle in the sesame seed oil. Toss a few times to blend. Taste, adjust the seasonings, if needed.
  • Sprinkle the shrimp fried rice with the remaining scallions and serve immediately.
