Fried rice is a go-to in our family because it’s always so easy, but recently I tested a theory to make it even easier… sheet pan “fried” rice! It’s just as yummy as pan-fried rice but requires even less time in the kitchen! I use pre-chopped veggies to make the clean up easy, and all you really have to wash is the sheet pan used to make the fried rice.

This version is made with shrimp as an easy protein and lots of veggies, and is gluten and soy free.

Why you’ll love this sheet pan-fried rice

  • It’s veggie-packed. It’s made with cauliflower, onion, garlic, peas, and carrots for the perfect fiber-rich meal.
  • It’s an easy way to cook protein. Shrimp is already easy to cook, but this method is even easier!

The ingredients for sheet pan-fried rice

  • Cooked Jasmine Rice. You want to use rice that was previously cooked and cooled, as warm rice won’t get as crispy.
  • Peas, Carrots, Garlic and Ginger. These are the veggies used for the dish.
  • Rice Vinegar and Coconut Aminos.
  • Shrimp. I add the shrimp whole to save time chopping!

How to make sheet pan-fried rice

  • Step One. Mix all the ingredients except for the shrimp.
  • Step Two. Add the rice mixture to the baking sheet and bake.
  • Step Three. Toss the shrimp in salt, pepper, coconut aminos, and avocado oil.
  • Step Four. Add the shrimp to the baking sheet and bake another 10 minutes.

Tips & Tricks

  • Make sure your rice is cool! If you add hot rice to the oven, it’s not going to crisp as well as cold rice. For perfect crispy fried rice, you’ll want to use rice that is cooked and cooled.
  • Add more veggies if desired. Veggies like chopped broccoli, cauliflower rice, and onion would all be great additions to this recipe!

Can you add an egg to this recipe?

You can actually drizzle scrambled egg over the sheet pan toward the end when you add the shrimp for a scrambled egg texture. If you prefer a fried egg, you can also just fry it in a pan if you prefer to have a little more control over just how crispy you get your eggs.
