Hibachi fried rice recipe with yum yum sauce
You don’t need special equipment to make this hibachi shrimp rice at home. All you need is a skillet or wok and 30 minutes of your time. It is a great recipe if you have leftover rice. One day old rice is actually ideal for hibachi.
Most recipes use soy sauce only, but I have been making fried rice for the last ten years and found the BEST combination of ingredients to make super flavourful fried rice. It a real flavour bomb!
Hibachi fried rice is usually served with yum yum sauce. It comes together in minutes. Thin it out with water to you liking.
How to make hibachi style fried rice
Cook the shrimp: To make it, cook the shrimp in a large skillet for 2 minutes. I let my shrimp marinate for 10 minutes before cooking. Use any seasoning you like or have on hand. Once they are cooked through, transfer to a plate.
Cook veggies and scramble the eggs in the same pan. First, cook onion until translucent, then add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Add in the veggies and continue cooking until tender, about 3 minutes. Push them to the side of the skillet and add the beaten eggs. Scramble and give a nice stir.
Add the rice and sauce and mix everything together.
Hibachi Shrimp Fried Rice Ingredients
- Uncooked shrimp: Use large or jumbo shrimp because they are meatier.
- Oil: Canola or peanut oil will work well.
- Garlic cloves: It gives a nice kick, but feel free to omit if you don’t like it.
- Veggies: I always have a package of frozen veggies in my freezer. They are really good for fried rice and soups. Onion, carrot, French beans and peas. You can add corn and capsicum if desired.
- Cooked rice: Use leftover rice or freshly cooked and chilled Instant Pot jasmine or basmati rice.
- Green onions
Best rice for hibachi
In the US Calrose rice is usually used in Japanese restaurants. “Cal” means a product of California and “rose” –refers to medium grain rice. It is not real Japanese rice, but it has moderate stickiness and good enough for Japanese restaurants in the US.
For this recipe you can use Calrose, Jasmine or any long grain rice like basmati. One day old rice is ideal. If you don’t have cooked rice, cook rice on the stove or in your instant pot and allow to cool down completely. You can spread the rice on the tray and place in the freezer for 20 minutes until JUST chilled.
