Japanese Steakhouse Style Fried Rice & Yum Yum (Shrimp) Sauce Recipe

Ok, y'all, I'm going to share my all time favorite recipe with y'all tonight....Japanese fried rice and yum yum or shrimp sauce! I also made teriyaki zucchini and baked sweet & sour chicken:) Anthony & I have it at least once a month and it saves us a ton of money, we used to go out to Japanese Steakhouses but now we just make it at home! I always have to make a huge double batch of the rice & sauce though because there are several guys Anthony work with that beg me to make it for them as well! haha:) It's pretty simple and can be tweaked to suit almost anyone's tastes. I always cook my white rice and prepare the sauce the night before, it tastes much better after sitting overnight in the fridge. I hope y'all enjoy it as much as we all do!
Yum Yum or Shrimp Sauce
  • 1 1/4 cup Hellman's Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 TBS melted butter
  • 1 TBS tomato paste
  • 1/2 TSP garlic powder
  • 1 TSP sugar
  • 1 TSP paprika
  • 1/4 TSP cayenne, or to taste
  1. In a blender (I use a blender bottle from GNC that I bought for protein shakes lol) add mayo, water, melted butter, garlic powder, sugar, paprika and cayenne.
  2. Blend until well mixed.
  3. Refrigerate at least 4 hours for flavors to mingle, overnight is best
  4. Serve with fried rice, shrimp, chicken, veggies...a leather boot,'s that good! haha;)
Japanese Fried Rice
  • 3 - 4 cups cooked white rice (day old is best, that's why I cook it the night before!)
  • 3 TBS sesame oil
  • 1 TBS butter
  • 3/4 - 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 TSP minced garlic
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce, or to taste
  • optional, toasted sesame seeds, to taste 
  1. On medium-high heat, heat the oil and butter in a large skillet or wok.
  2. Add peas & carrots mix, garlic and onion, stir fry until tender.
  3. While vegetables are cooking, place your eggs in a small skillet and cook until done.
  4. Add eggs, rice and soy sauce to your vegetable mixture and blend together well.
  5. Stir fry until thoroughly heated through.
**You can totally play around with this recipe and add mushrooms, zucchini, or whatever to the vegetable mixture!**

  1. This sounds delish! I'm going to have to try it. My hubby and I love Asian food. By the way, I'm in Fayetteville so not too far from y'all. ;-)
