  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 0.5 lb shrimp (peeled, deveined)
  • 1 Chinese pork sausage (about 1/2 cup thinly sliced)
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup frozen green peas
  • 1/2 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced shallot
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced scallion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • salt and pepper


  • If use freshly cooked rice, spread it on a plate to cool for 10-15 minutes.
  • Peel, devein and chop shrimp into small pieces.
  • Cut zucchini in half length-wise and slice thinly.
  • Slice Chinese sausage thinly.
  • Beat egg and set aside.
  • Place a wok/large skillet over medium-high (for non-stick skillet) or high heat (for wok). When it's hot, add Chinese sausage, stir and render fat for 1-2 minutes. Set aside.
  • Add garlic and stir until fragrant, add shrimp pieces and a pinch of salt. Stir and when shrimp is almost cooked through, transfer to a plate.
  • Add zucchini and quickly stir for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Set aside.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When oil is hot, add shallot, stir and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add rice, break up the chunks of rice, stir and toss until rice is coated with oil and turns pale brown, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Pour the beaten egg over the rice, quickly mix and stir so that the egg coats all the rice grains.
  • Add frozen peas, continue to toss and stir until peas are almost thawed. Add Chinese sausage, shrimp, zucchini, soy sauce and fish sauce, toss and stir well until all add-ins are cooked through and rice grains are separate. Turn off the heat, add scallion, pepper and sesame oil. Mix well and then serve immediately.
