Shrimp Fried Rice with Edamame

Shrimp Fried Rice with Edamame

Traditional fried rice gets an update with Japanese green soybeans. Dark sesame oil adds a distinct "toasted" flavor when stirred in just before serving. Because of its high smoke point, peanut oil is ideal for stir-frying.

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups)
  • Cook time:26 Minutes
  • Prep time:17 Minutes


  • 2 teaspoons peanut oil
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced shallots (about 1 large)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 4 cups cooked jasmine or other white rice, cooked according to package directions without salt or fat
  • 1 cup fully-cooked refrigerated shelled edamame
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot (about 1 medium)
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions (about 3 onions)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil


Heat peanut oil over medium-high heat in a wok or large nonstick skillet. Add shallots and egg; stir-fry 30 seconds or until egg is soft-scrambled. Add shrimp and ginger, and stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Add rice and next 4 ingredients, and stir-fry 1 minute. Stir in soy sauce and sesame oil

Note: Chilled rice works best when preparing fried rice because the grains don't stick together. However, when you're in a rush, freshly cooked rice will work in this dish.
