What’s your favorite dish for a humble and quick soy sauce fried rice?  Mine goes to shrimp and scrambled egg.  Eggs are the No. 1 partner for most of fried rice dishes. In Chinese cooking, we have two ways to use egg along with fried rice. The firstly one is to wrap the grains with egg liquid like this simply egg fried rice and Chinese fried rice (Yangzhou version) and the other way is to use scrambled egg, simply as a side ingredients (just like what we did today). Larger pieces of egg in the second way is more satisfying but the rice lose the uniform egg aroma, comparing with the former method.  So we use soy sauce to help flavoring the coloring the grains.

Cook’s Note

If you prefer a deeper color, use 1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce. Light soy sauce is mainly used for flavoring. Dark soy sauce is mainly used for coloring.
