Fried rice is one of those dinners that the whole family will eat, and it is so easy to make as well. Now, I have shared before How To Make Hibachi Fried Rice On The Blackstone Griddle as well as other Blackstone Recipes. It has become a fun challenge to see how I can change up fried rice every time I make it!

Now, if you are a Blackstone owner or new to Blackstone, there are several accessory options!! For making fried rice, the bigger spatulas are very helpful, and the scraper as well for this. I recommend having a squeeze bottle with more oil handy when making this; a bit more oil down helps the eggs not to stick as much when making that part.

Shrimp Fried Rice On Blackstone Griddle Ingredients:
- Thawed Shrimp
- White Rice– This will need to be cooked and cooled off. Leftover/day-old rice works best for this rice.
- Peas and Carrots- I used a frozen pea and carrot combination to make this dish.
- Soy Sauce
- Sesame Oil
- Minced Garlic
How To Make Shrimp Fried Rice On Blackstone Griddle:
A couple of hours before you make your fried rice, cook your white rice. This can also be done the night before cooking up your white rice. I make my white rice in a rice cooker, like these -> here on Amazon.
After your rice is cooked, spread it out on a cookie sheet to allow it to dry out after it is done cooking. Allow to dry out for about an hour before making the fried rice.
If your shrimp is frozen, fill a bowl with cold water and drop in the shrimp. I change out my water with cold water often until thawed.
Remove the shells of the shrimp if they need to be removed and de-vine.
In a large bowl, whisk your eggs with a splash of water. I have found that a splash of water makes for fluffier eggs.
Salt and pepper your egg mixture.
Fire up your Blackstone griddle and re-oil it down if needed. I always keep mine ready to go, so all I have to do is turn it on and re-oil it a little bit. (Check out my tips for Caring For Your Blackstone -> here)
Pour a spot of extra vegetable oil, and then drop your shrimp in the oil when it is warmed up. I did this to help the shrimp cook and ensure it didn’t stick.
Season the shrimp with some Old Bay and allow them to cook. When the shrimp are partially cooked, I sprinkle the shrimp with some soy sauce.
Spread your rice onto the griddle and sprinkle some minced garlic and soy sauce.
Next, spread the peas and carrots out next to the rice and allow them to cook if frozen; if thawed, they warm up.
Pour your eggs onto the other side of the griddle to cook. If your griddle looks dry, squirt on a bit more vegetable oil.
As the eggs cook, they will look like scrambled eggs and get chopped up like scrambled eggs.
Combine the eggs with the rice, peas, and carrots, and I like to mix them into the rice as they are cooking and still runny.
Mix it with the rest of the rice as the shrimp is cooking.
Remove and serve!
