Introduction: One Pot Shrimp and Fried Rice in 20 Minutes

Easy and tasty shrimp and fried rice in 20 minutes. And you only need one pot!

This recipe makes 2 servings

  • 1 cup instant rice
  • 1 cup water

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • Soy sauce to taste


  • 2 quart pot
  • Spoon and/or spatula

Step 1: Cook the Rice

Bring the water to a boil, then add rice and simmer on low for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir the rice and cover for 5 more minutes. Then move the rice into your serving bowl(s).

Step 2: Cook the Eggs

Add the oil to the pot and return to medium heat. After the oil heats up, add the eggs and scramble.
