Shrimp fried rice

In my experience, the Chinese takeouts in suburbia serve some pretty unappealing stuff. This shrimp fried rice is an example of the weirdness: Where's the egg? Isn't fried rice supposed to contain egg? And why does it look all orangey-yellow, as if someone snuck in some saffron (or yellow #5)?

I can't complain too much, because the shrimp was cooked to perfection. I also got some broccoli with garlic sauce, which was tolerable - the broccoli was not overcooked, still bright green, but the sauce was too oily and insufficiently hot and spicy.
