Sheet-Pan Shrimp Fried Rice


This sheet-pan shrimp fried rice recipe is a great way to use leftover rice, but you could also use pre-cooked microwave rice. Let it come to room temperature while you chop the veggies. Sambal, the spicy chile-based condiment popular in Indonesia, Malaysia and southern India, provides a kick.

  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

  • 2 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek (ground fresh chile paste)

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce

  • 3 cups cooked long-grain white rice, at room temperature

  • 1 cup matchstick carrots

  • 1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper

  • ½ cup finely chopped yellow onion

  • ½ cup plus 2 Tbsp. sliced scallions

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 pound large peeled, deveined raw shrimp

  • 1 cup frozen sweet peas, thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Whisk together sesame oil, soy sauce, sambal oelek, rice vinegar, and fish sauce in a small bowl. Stir together rice, carrots, bell pepper, onion, and 1/2 cup of the scallions in a large bowl. Add sesame oil mixture to rice mixture; stir well to fully coat.

  2. Spread rice mixture in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until rice begins to toast on outer edges, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Stir; drizzle evenly with eggs, and top with shrimp.

  3. Return rice mixture to oven; bake at 450 degrees F until shrimp is opaque and cooked through and eggs are cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from oven; transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add peas; toss to combine until peas are warmed through, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons scallions; serve immediately.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
