Shrimp and Cabbage Fried Rice

Good evening.

It has been a rather gloomy day in the southeast with raining, lightning and occasional thundering and since I was under the weather both mentally and physically, I needed something that would make my happy. And I think,Chinese food makes me really really happy. I am even more happier when I manage to make something taste just like the restaurant version. My fried rice today was Ah-mazing. Really not tooting my own horn or sounding like a donkey who praises its own tail, but this recipe was really that good.

Shrimp and Cabbage Fried Rice


  • Cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 half of shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 lb of deveined shrimps
  • 3 scallions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 T tamari
  • 2 T Vegetarian oyster sauce
  • 1/2 T Sriracha
  • 1 T Hot and sweet ketchup (or chili sauce)
  • Cilantro or green onions for garnishing.
  • 1 T canola oil.
– Heat canola oil in a skillet and add onion and garlic.
-Once the onion and garlic are cooked, add the shrimps and stir for about 2 minutes.
– Next add the cabbage and saute for 2 minutes. You want to retain the crunchy texture.
-Next add the sauces, mix and dump the rice in.
-Season to taste. It will be salty enough from the sauces, so you may not need to season further.
-Optional: Add an egg/chicken instead of shrimp. You can also add toasted sesame oil, I am not a major fan so I skipped it.
Workout: NONE! Being under the weather is taking a toll on my training schedule.
