It is one of the most popular rice recipes in the world. It started to be made as a home-cooked dish in China in 4000 BC and includes rice as the main ingredient. Over the years, the recipe has evolved into one of the most traditional dishes of Chinese food.

The story goes that when the first Chinese immigrants arrived in the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles in the 19th century to work on the construction of the transcontinental railway in the US, they fostered the business of economical restaurants.

How to make the recipe Fried rice three delights

  1. We start by washing the rice in cold water so that it loses starch and becomes looser. When we see that the water is already clean, we reserve the rice. Now we put a pot on the fire with 600 ml of water and when it boils, we add the rice and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. When this time has passed, we cover it and let it rest for 4 more minutes. Then reserve it.
  2. We put a frying pan on the fire and pour in a drizzle of sunflower oil. When hot, we add the two unpeeled garlic cloves, cut in half. Then we incorporate half a finely chopped red pepper and let it all fry. When it gets color, we remove the garlic cloves and add the shrimp. These should be well dried, with kitchen paper, and cut into pieces. We stir-fry for a couple of minutes and remove everything to use later.
  3. In a bowl, we put the two eggs and beat with a fork. In the same frying pan that we used before, we put another drizzle of sunflower oil and incorporate the beaten eggs with a drizzle of soy sauce. We set it by stirring. We don't need a perfect omelet, the eggs just need to be well set since we will cut them into pieces later. Remove and reserve.
  4. Again in the same frying pan, we incorporate another drizzle of sunflower oil. We put the rice and the peas, and stir-fry everything
  5. Again in the same frying pan, we add another drizzle of sunflower oil. We put the rice and the peas and stir-fry everything while moving the pan. We add a tablespoon of soy sauce and finally incorporate the shrimp with the pepper and the omelet cut into pieces. We move and mix all the ingredients well.
