This recipe has been adapted for simple and quick home-cooking, so the results will be equally tasty whether you use a wok or a large skillet, just make sure you’re ready for a bit of stir-frying!
Start by cooking a bag of Jasmine rice then set it to the side. Prepare your sauce by combining brown sugar, fish sauce, lime juice, chili sauce, and soy sauce in a small bowl and set that aside as well. In a wok or large skillet, heat oil and quickly scramble the eggs over high heat and set those aside. Now comes that stir-frying we mentioned earlier: heat oil in the wok or large skillet and add garlic and shrimp and stir-fry. Follow that by adding the rice, sauce, onion, and cooked eggs and give it a good toss to combine all of those tasty ingredients. Serve in bowls and top with bean sprouts, peanuts, cilantro, and a lime wedge on the side and give your local Thai restaurant a run for their money.
