Simple “Bagoong” (Shrimp paste) Fried Rice – Recipe

Here’s a super simple – no fuss – Bagoong fried rice recipe that you can cook in a snap, but you must have at least 3 tablespoons of a good shrimp paste, I think you can purchase a bottle from groceries. I used here the one my “Nanay” (grandmom) made for me. I believe it took me about 15 minutes or less to cook this fried rice. Pair it with your main course like pork adobo or roasted pork ribs makes a fantastic meal.

I adopted this recipe from a Thai dish I tasted and adjusted it a little. I’m sure you will like this version of mine plus you get to use your left-over rice, nothing gets wasted and everyone’s happy. Even happier after they try this ๐Ÿ™‚

prep time:less than 15 minutes / good for 2-3 pax

  • 3 tbspย bagoong (shrimp paste) – but you can add some more if you desire ๐Ÿ™‚
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs (scrambled and fried then cut into strips)
  • 3 cups day-old rice
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • salt/pepper to taste (optional)

Begin, by heating the oil in a frying pan.

Add garlic, and fry until golden brown.

Put the bagoong (shrimp paste) and let it simmer a little then add the left-over rice.

Mix the rice and bagoong, marry them with flavors while adding a teaspoon of soy sauce.

lastly, bring in the strips of fried egg. add pepper/salt as you like.

combine…

and it’s now ready,

just like that,

enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
