Easy Hibachi Shrimp Recipe With Fried Rice And Vegetables

I finally have learned how to make a Hibachi Shrimp recipe that tastes like my favorite Japanese Steakhouse restaurant. And that includes the fried rice that goes with it!

Whenever I eat at a Japanese steakhouse I always debate whether I should order the Hibachi Chicken, Hibachi Steak, or Hibachi Shrimp off of the menu.

Although I like them all as individual items, I don’t particularly care for the combo meals that include two or three of the protein choices. So that leaves me with the dilemma on which delicious dinner to order.

And because I can only order one, I always end up craving the other two shortly after our trip to the restaurant. But luckily I can replicate those hibachi dinner recipes in my kitchen or on my Blackstone flat top grill.

We have also replicated the Hibachi Chicken and Vegetables recipe, and have learned how to make the famous Yum-Yum sauce as well. So for today’s new recipe we though we would share our recipe, tips and tricks.

Hibachi Shrimp Recipe

Ingredients

Sesame oil
Cooked and cooled white rice
Onion
Eggs
Frozen peas and carrots
Soy sauce
Butter
Garlic
Sesame seeds
Kosher salt & pepper
Jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
Lemon juice

Equipment Required

egg and rice
Cooked white rice that is about ready to be transformed into fried rice. You can add whole eggs or beaten eggs to the rice.

Instructions

Begin making this hibachi shrimp recipe by heating a flat top griddle, large skillet or wok over medium high heat for at least 5 minutes.

Once it is nice and hot add the sesame oil and spread it across the pan with the bottom of the spatula. Then add the rice, onion, and beaten eggs.

Cook for 2 minutes until the eggs begin to cook. Be sure to mix the ingredients together as they cook by dicing and flipping them with the spatula.

Once the egg is barely cooked add the peas and carrots to the rice mixture and cook for one minute.

Immediately add the soy sauce, butter, garlic, sesame seeds, kosher salt and pepper to the rice mixture. However, go light on the salt as the soy sauce is naturally salty, even if you are using low sodium soy sauce.

Cook for approximately 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently until the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the rice. Then move the rice to the side of the griddle or skillet.

Then add the remaining sesame oil to the open area in the skillet and add the shrimp, soy sauce, and lemon juice. For this recipe, the hibachi shrimp will cook in about 3 minutes or until the shrimp just turn pink in color.

Once the shrimp is cooked, mix it together with the rice mixture. Serve immediately with Yum Yum sauce and/or Soy Sauce on the side.

Enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I add other vegetables?

You can certainly add other vegetables to your Hibachi Shrimp recipe. Many people add diced zucchini, yellow squash and broccoli to this recipe. Simply saute them on the griddle at the same time that you add the onion.

Can I use frozen shrimp?

You do not have to use fresh shrimp for this recipe. However, if you do use store-bought frozen shrimp be sure to thaw it before adding it to the hot cooking surface.

How do I know when the shrimp is cooked?

The best part about cooking shrimp is that it ‘tells’ you when it is cooked. The color of the shrimp will turn pink in color when it is cooked. Don’t let it overcook as it will become tough and difficult to chew.

Can I make this recipe over steamed rice instead of fried rice?

Absolutely! Simply skip the instructions that tells you how to make fried rice. Heat the white rice and serve it with the cooked shrimp.

Once the fried rice is ready, scoot it to one side of the griddle and pan and cook the shrimp.

How To Store & Reheat

This hibachi shrimp recipe refrigerates very well and can be used for leftovers for up to 5 days. I even eat it for breakfast when I am in a hurry. You can also freeze it for a quick and easy meal whenever you need one.

The easiest method to reheat your meal is in the microwave. I highly recommend cutting the shrimp in small bite size pieces so it doesn’t overcook during the reheating process.

Add a little water or chicken stock to the rice and shrimp mixture and heat in 30 second increments, stirring between each time.

You can also heat the mixture in a skillet with a little liquid or steam it for 3 minutes in an electric pressure cooker, such as an Instant Pot.
