  • Crisp up the Chinese sausage over medium high heat, cooking until slightly browned, stirring occasionally. You shouldn’t need to add oil to the pan as the Chinese sausages will render out a bunch of fat, but if they’re sticking, add a bit in. Remove the Chinese sausage from the pan and add it to the bowl with the eggs.

  • Heat up 2 tablespoons of oil in the pan and add the rice. If you’re using rice from the fridge, it’s best to break it up with slightly wet hands before putting in the pan. Fry, stirring occasionally until the rice is crispy and heated through.
  • Add the eggs, sausage, onion, shrimp, lettuce, and green onions and toss everything together so that everything is evenly distributed. Season with salt or soy sauce and enjoy hot!
