Stuffed Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice

This is a super easy recipe ready in less than an hour and is hearty, tangy, and a bit sweet. You can even serve the dish in the pineapples for a fun spring meal! This recipe is made with shrimp for the protein, bell peppers, and fresh chunks of pineapple.

For this recipe, you will need:

  • 1-2 Medium Pans
  • Shrimp: you want deveined and peeled shrimp! I used the wild caught shrimp from Sizzlefish
  • Yellow Onion: this variety is sweeter
  • Olive Oil: I use EVOO (extra virgin) because it’s not processed or refined
  • Carrots
  • Bell Peppers: red, orange, or yellow are best for this
  • Pineapple: fresh or frozen works well, just make sure it is defrosted
  • Coconut Aminos: this is a great alternative to soy sauce and is made with just coconut and salt. You can substitute soy or tamari sauce instead
  • Sesame Oil
  • Brown Rice: to make this recipe as quick as possible, use frozen pre-cooked brown rice
  • Garlic
  • Ginger: fresh ginger gives a subtle flavor to the dish
  • Scallions: these are optional, but delicious sprinkled on top
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Tips:

  • Prep your vegetables in advance and store them in the refrigerator (onion, carrots, and peppers)
  • You can either cook the rice mixture in a pan first, then place it in a bowl, and cook the shrimp in the same pan, or use one pan for the rice mixture and another for the shrimp
  • You can leave the shrimp out and use any other protein of your choice
  • Leftover pineapple? Air fry it with some ghee + cinnamon + coconut oil or store it in the freezer and use it in smoothies

How to Store:

  • Once cooled, place fried rice in a sealed airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days!
