Ingredients:
  • 4 cups cold cooked rice
  • 4 ounces frozen uncooked shrimp, unshelled
  • 4 ounces cooked ham, diced (or substitute cooked chicken, turkey, etc.)
  • 2 eggs (more if desired)
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 green onion
  • Seasonings (Add according to directions or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pepper
  • cornstarch (corn flour) mixed with water

  • Oil for stir-frying
 
 
Method:
  1. Prepare vegetables and meat - remove the tiny legs from the shrimp, shell removal reduces flavour but is up to you.
  2. Dice the ham, onion, and green onion. Beat the eggs lightly with chopsticks, add a dash of salt, and mix.*
  3. Heat wok and add oil. When oil is ready, pour 1/2 of the egg mixture into the wok and cook over medium heat, turning over once. Cook the other half the same way. Cut the egg into thin strips, and save for later.
  4. Add the seasonings to the shrimp, mixing them in with chopsticks.
  5. Stir-fry the onion and shrimp on high heat for a few moments, remove and set aside. Do the same for the green peas, and then the ham.
  6. Add oil, turn the heat down to medium and stir-fry the rice. Add a bit of soy and oyster sauce if desired. Add the other ingredients except the egg and green onion and combine thoroughly. Serve the fried rice with the strips of egg on top and the green onion as garnish.**

*You can also add a bit of oyster sauce if desired.

**Alternately, you can mix the green onion and egg in with the other ingredients.
