Pineapple Fried Rice
Published in The Beachside Resident January 2019 Issue
Gluten Free Soy Sauce
Shrimp (can substitute chicken or tofu)
I always make enough to feed an army, so I will share the instructions for a large portion. There will be plenty for a dinner party and lunch the next day. Cut the measurements in half if you don’t want to make a large amount.
Boil two cups of rice in four cups of water. In a sauté pan, sauté chopped 1/3 of a white onion and one pound of shrimp with turmeric and garlic seasoning in coconut oil. Steam the edamame; I usually just get the microwavable bag. As I cook my ingredients, I pour them into a large bowl or casserole dish to mix at the end. When the shrimp and onions are cooked, pour in the large bowl and start sautéing the pineapple and carrots. After the pineapple and carrots are cooked or warmed up, toss them into the bowl and add more coconut oil to the pan to toast the cashews. The last step with the sauté pan is to fry the rice after it is done cooking. Toss in gluten-free soy sauce and two eggs and fry until the eggs are fully cooked. Mix everything in the large bowl, then top with green onions and sriracha.
I cook some of the ingredients separately because they won’t all fit in a pan (unless you cook a smaller amount). Everything cooks quickly, so why not break it up instead of having all of the burners going at once. You can also add broccoli, red peppers and other fresh veggies to this dish. I added quinoa in my last batch. You can serve this dish inside the pineapple for a fun presentation.
