Prepare all the ingredients as this will be quick process.
In a big wok or skillet, add oil over medium heat.
Once hot, quickly cook the shrimp until pink. Remove and set aside.
Add onion and cook for a minute.
Stir-in garlic. Cook until golden.
Add Chinese sausage and cook for a minute.
Add carrots and cook for a couple of minutes.
Toss-in ham and green peas.
Stir-in soy sauce, mirin, oyster sauce and garlic powder.
Add the rice and mix well.
Move the mixture to the side forming a well and add the eggs at the center. Break the eggs, cook until partially set and mix with the ingredients. It will continue cooking while mixed with the rice.
Season with salt, if needed. I don’t.
Toss-in the shrimp and the green onion, mix with the fried rice and cook for a minute.
Turn off heat and transfer to a serving platter right away so shrimp doesn’t overcook.
To save you time, buy headless, peeled and deveined shrimp.
You can scramble and cook the eggs before the shrimp, if you are not comfortable cooking it with the mixture. Cut into smaller pieces, set aside and add it till the end with the shrimp.
I have listed substitutions for some of the ingredients in the post.
Make sure to use a day old rice and break it before cooking. If you use a newly cooked rice, fried rice will be sticky and clumpy.
Taste before adding salt. Soy sauce and oyster sauce are already salty, so you might not even need salt.
Leftover shrimp fried rice can be stored in a well sealed container in the fridge up to 2 days and a month in the freezer in a food saver.
