In my opinion, shrimp must go to the mix after veggies are done. If you start cooking onions first they will also be mushy by the time carrots are done. So this is the order that Chinese chefs use - I looked at them cooking numerous times: cook rice to half done, let it cool. In the wok heat oil with garlic, add carrots and celery. If the oil evaporates during frying, add a bit of water for veggies not to dry or burn. When veggies are almost crisp done, add shrimp and chopped scallions, soy sauce and a bit of hot sauce. After shrimp is turned pink, stir in rice. When rice is hot, stir in egg (uncooked! not cooked like someone here mentioned yack!). Oh, and it only takes 20-25 minutes to make for me, including chopping veggies. Enjoy.
