One-skillet, ready in 20 minutes, and you’ll never get takeout again!! Homemade tastes WAY BETTER!! Tons more flavor, not greasy, and loaded with tender shrimp!!


  • Prep Time: 5minutes 
  • Cook Time: 10minutes 
  • Total Time: 15minutes 


  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 pound medium-large fresh shrimp cleaned (approximately 15-20 count shrimp)
  • 1 cup frozen peas and diced carrots blend I don’t thaw and use straight from the freezer
  • 1/2 cup corn I use frozen straight from the freezer
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves finely minced or pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 4 cups cooked rice I use white, long-grain or brown may be substituted. To save time use two 8.8-ounce pouches cooked and ready-to-serve rice
  • 2 to 3 green onions trimmed and sliced into thin rounds
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or to taste


  • To a large non-stick skillet or wok, add the oils, shrimp, and cook over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes, flipping halfway through. Cooking time will vary based on size of shrimp, don’t overcook. Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon (allow oils and cooking juices to remain in skillet) and place shrimp on a plate; set aside.
  • Add the peas, carrots, corn, and cook for about 2 minutes, or until vegetables begin to soften, stir intermittently.
  • Add the garlic, ginger, and cook for 1 minute, stir intermittently.
  • Push vegetables to one side of the skillet, add the eggs to the other side, and cook to scramble, stirring as necessary.
  • Add the shrimp, rice, green onions, evenly drizzle with soy sauce, evenly season with salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until shrimp is reheated through. Recipe is best warm and fresh but will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months. Reheat gently as desired.
