ChihYu Smith

Din Tai Fung fried rice recipe with shrimp and eggs is an easy copycat recipe from the famous Taiwanese restaurant. Ready in 20 minutes!

Let’s get started!

Prep the rice


Gently separate the rice grains with your hands so there are no clumps of rice. This is critical to ensure each grain has a crispy texture.

Cook the shrimp


Pan fry in oil over medium heat for about 1 minute per side or until about 80-90 percent cooked. Turn off the heat, transfer the shrimp out to set aside.



Pour in the eggs, quickly break them up, add the rice and seasonings (with bouillon powder). Toss and combine with the shrimp and scallions.



To plate like the restaurant, use a round bowl. Place the shrimp at the bottom of the bowl and pack the rice grains on top. Invert the bowl over the plate to form into a dome shape.
