Make Perfect Oven-Baked Fried Rice Every Time. 

If you are a regular reader here on the blog, you might have seen one of my other rice recipes; y’all Africans run on riceOK. We don’t play when it comes to this food. In other words, we use every means necessary to make it legendary. The traditional/authentic Nigerian fried rice is a recipe after my heart, but sometimes, there aren’t just enough hours in a day to make it happen because it takes a little more time as you would need to fry it batch by batch. 

This Nigerian baked fried rice requires only half the effort as you combine all the ingredients and allow your oven to do its job. I would further argue that baked coconut fried rice is effortlessly tastier as you take this one-pot fried rice recipe to the next level by adding coconut milk and shrimp. Though this is a super quick version of our beloved fried rice, it doesn’t taste any lesser than authentic fried rice. If you dislike shrimp, exclude it and use any other protein.

Baked Fried Rice Vs. Regular Nigerian Fried Rice

  1. Baked fried rice is cooked in the oven (as the name suggests), while regular Nigerian fried rice is “fried” batch by batch on the stovetop. 
  2. Both oven-baked Nigerian fried rice and stove-top fried rice can use any choice of protein. 
  3. Nigerian baked fried rice is easier and quicker to cook than regular fried rice cooked on the stovetop. 
  4. Regular Nigerian fried rice cooked on the stovetop may be more crispy because it is fried, unlike oven-baked fried rice. However, both the fried rice are deliciously tasty!

Tools for Making Coconut Fried Rice in the Oven:

  • Baking Dish. (Make a big baking dish that will accommodate the rice, vegetables, and shrimp). I actually underrated the rice quantity, and as you can see in the video, it was somewhat challenging to combine everything toward the end. 
  • Bowl. You will need a bowl to wash the raw rice.
  • Pan. You are going to need a small pan to sauté the shrimp.
  • Cooking spoon or spatula. This is for stirring/combining.

Ingredients for Baked Coconut Fried Rice with Shrimp:

Rice:

Can you really make any fried rice without rice? Well, am sure that you already know the answer – NO! There are plenty of types of raw rice in grocery stores, and the key should be to buy high-quality long-grain uncooked (raw) rice. Don’t use the 1-minute instant quick rice. I typically use this rice brand.

Long grain raw rice
This is the type of rice I used for this dish

Shrimp:

I am using shrimp for today’s Nigerian baked coconut fried rice; you can use any protein. In fact, in the past, I have used chicken, beef, and liver; I would typically prep these proteins the same way I will be prepping the shrimp today (sautéing). Shrimp completes this meal with the needed protein. Shrimp is a high-quality protein and equally perfect for individuals on their weight loss journey because it has lower calories than regular meat. 

Besides the benefits mentioned, shrimps provide the body with other essential minerals and compounds such as selenium, copper, iodine, vitamin B12, and many others. Ingredients for sauteing the shrimp include salt, black pepper, Knorr seasoning powder, dry thyme, and crushed red pepper.

Coconut Milk:

Coconut milk is the beautiful white “milk” liquid extracted from mature coconuts. You can easily make homemade coconut milk or use canned coconut milk (I like the Thai Kitchen brand!). Coconut milk is undoubtedly the single most important ingredient that elevates baked fried rice. It takes it from a simple oven-baked fried rice to the tastiest Nigerian baked coconut fried rice. Be ready to enjoy coconut milk flavors in this dish! YUM

Other Ingredients:

Chicken Broth:

highly encourage making this Nigerian baked coconut fried rice with a well-seasoned chicken broth! If you desire tasty + authentic fried rice comparable to Nigerian fried rice (cooked on the stovetop), you must use chicken broth. I typically use homemade chicken broth as I cook a lot, and I always have some chicken broth stored somewhere in the freezer. Though I have never used store-bought chicken broth, it should work in the absence of homemade chicken broth. 

Homemade chicken broth

Mixed Vegetables:

Mixed vegetables are the heart of every fried rice; they make them fanciful and flavorful! Personally, I love seeing the mixture of carrots, peas, green beans, bell peppers, etc., when it comes to my fried rice. I have in various times in the past used fresh and frozen vegetables for this dish, and it comes out very delicious. In other words, feel free to use what you have on hand. Today I am making this Nigerian baked coconut fried rice with frozen veggies to save time and energy. I don’t have time to peel/chop fresh veggies. 

Herbs & Spices:

Add the herbs and spices you enjoy; I kept my herbs and spices very simple as I am using a well-seasoned chicken broth. All the flavors from my homemade broth carried over to the rice. Some herbs and spices used to make this Nigerian baked coconut fried rice include curry and turmeric. Also, Knorr powder, seasoned broth (as mentioned), and coconut milk equally added tons of flavors. Thyme, rosemary, and bay leaves will make a great addition.

Storing and Reheating Nigerian Baked Coconut Fried Rice 

Refrigerator: Nigerian baked coconut fried rice keeps very well in the refrigerator. You can store it in your fridge for up to 4 days. 

Freezer: You can absolutely store this baked fried rice in your freezer. My simple rule for storing this rice in the freezer is to pack them in small individual containers so that you can easily grab a container and heat it without touching the rest. In words, when you reheat it, you consume it. I don’t suggest reheating and re-storing. 

Another important rule I follow when it comes to freezing my rice is never to allow it to defrost if I wish to reheat it. If you allow it to defrost, it will release a lot of moisture/water, and your perfect rice may become soggy! Make sure to reheat it in your microwave immediately after you remove it from the freezer.
