  • 1/2 kg of shrimp
  • 2 cups (0.47 l) of rice
  • 3 cups (0.71 l) of water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 6 green onions
  • 2 roasted California chili peppers
  • 1/2 kg of cabbage
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce


Step 1: Rice, Rice Baby

First things first, grab that rice, and let's get frying! Throw it in a pan with some oil, and give it a good ol' sizzle. You want that rice to dance in the oil until it's kissed with a hint of golden deliciousness. When it's done, it's like a rice party waiting to happen.

Step 2: Rice's Day Out

Now, cover that pan with a lid and let it cook. But here's where it gets interesting – once the rice is all done and feeling cozy, we're sending it on a mini vacation. No, we're not sending it to the Bahamas. Instead, we'll let it rest, basking in the sun or getting some fresh wind. Why? Because this rice is a superstar, meant to be served at night, and it needs that pre-party glow.

Step 3: Seafood Extravaganza

While your rice is getting that golden tan, let's talk about our seafood stars – the shrimp. Peel 'em, boil 'em, and slice 'em. These shrimp are like the life of the party – ready for action!

Step 4: Egg-citement Unleashed

Now, let's whip up some egg-citement. Take those eggs and beat 'em into submission. No, not too hard. We don't want egg drama. Pour the eggs into a pan, make an omelet, and cut it into squares. These egg squares are the cool cats of this dish.

Step 5: The Chop Squad

Gather your culinary ninjas – chili peppers, celery, onion, cabbage, and cilantro. Chop, chop, chop! These veggies are the supporting cast, adding depth to our flavorful tale.

Step 6: The Grand Unveiling

In a large pot, with a bit of oil, toss in your rice, give it a splash of soy sauce for that salty pizzazz. Now, let's invite our shrimp and those square egg cool cats. Stir it altogether, and it's like a culinary dance-off in that pot. Let them groove over low heat until everything's cooked to perfection.

Step 7: Abalone Option

You can take this flavor fiesta up a notch by substituting shrimp with abalone. It's like a surprise guest at your party, promising an even wilder adventure for your taste buds.

  • For a richer flavor, use chicken broth instead of water to cook the rice.
  • If you don't have roasted California chili peppers, you can use any other type of chili pepper that you like. Just be sure to remove the seeds and ribs before chopping.
  • You can also add other vegetables to the dish, such as carrots, peas, or mushrooms.
  • To make the dish ahead of time, simply cook the rice and vegetables according to the instructions. Then, reheat the rice and vegetables in a pan over medium heat until heated through. Add the shrimp and chopped egg and cook for 2–3 minutes, or until the shrimp are heated through.
