Shrimps and Tuna Fried Rice

This meal is so yummy that this monster can't even resist!

Ingredients (for 4 to 5 people)?

3 cups of rice
1 can of sweet kernel corn
1 can of tuna (I used the one soaked in vegetable oil)
1 lb of shrimps (peeled, deveined)
1/2 onion (chopped)
2 stalks of scallion (chopped)
1 medium sized carrot (chopped)
1 tablespoon of olive oil
3 tablespoons of Japanese mayonnaise
3 tablespoons of ponzu sauce
Some dried seaweed flakes
Some toasted sesame seeds


Some people prefer to use cold, cooked rice for fried rice dishes,
I have no preference at all, but making fried rice surely is a good way to get rid of leftover rice.
If you don't have any leftover goodies, just cook 3 cups of rice and set it aside.

Drizzle some olive oil and mayonnaise in the pan,
Toss in chopped onions and sprinkle some salt,
Let it cook till the color turned translucent.

Add the scallion and carrots, cook for about 30 seconds, add the shrimps,
Wait till the shrimps turned slightly red, add the corns and tuna,
Meanwhile, pour in 3 tablespoons of ponzu sauce,
Give it a quick stir and wait till the shrimps are fully cooked.

Add the rice into the mixture,
Make sure everything is well combined,
We don't wanna see chunks of white rice, instead of that, try to get all the rice separated and coated with the sauce.

Taste it first and sprinkle more salt if needed.
Sprinkle some dried seaweed flakes and toasted sesame seeds before serving.

So what happened to the my fried rice?

Green monster: What?? No I did not eat it....(oops..)


  1. This is a beautiful looking dish! It fits the green monster too with the green dried seaweed flakes.

    Ingenious idea of sauteing the mayo! When it is cooked it gets this flavor that is delicious :).
