To start, heat the canola oil in a large skillet or wok set over high heat. Cook shrimp, green onions and garlic, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes or until the shrimp starts to curl.
Stir in the lightly beaten eggs and cook for about 1 minute, or until soft curds just start to form.
Add in the rice, frozen veggies, pineapple, soy sauce, hot sauce and 3 tbsp water. Cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes or until well coated.
Reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until rice and veggies are heated through and shrimp are cooked.
Sprinkle with toasted peanuts [or our nut-free alternative] before serving and enjoy!
With Asian-inspired recipes, there’s one thing and one thing only that we refuse to skimp on. What is that exactly? You guessed it – that good ol’ umami flavor. To be completely honest – we couldn’t have a fried rice recipe without it. In this dish, the help of sweet, sweet pineapple takes a savory rice to new umami levels.
That’s where you pineapple-on-pizza fanatics get a chance to rejoice. Right here, right now, we’re declaring our right to add pineapple to our salty recipes, this fried rice – and anything else for that matter! Our Pineapple Salami Fried Rice is another great example of how sweet meets salty for the greatest flavor explosion. Now, declarations aside, pineapple isn’t the only star of the show here.
With touch of cilantro and lime, our Naturally Flavored Ready-to-Heat Jasmine Rice also takes center stage, making it just as precious as those pineapple morsels you love so much. Not to mention, with its speedy cooking, it’s perfect for a fun, last-minute dinner or weekday meal prep. Just think, fried rice for lunch – ‘yum’ is an understatement.
Easy. Substitute toasted sesame seeds for peanuts. This will give your dish the same depth of flavor without any of the allergy scares!
As for our vegetarian friends out there, substitute shrimp with fresh seasonal veggies from the local Asian market or mix in your favorite meat substitution.
Feeling rebellious? The answer is yes, this recipe is just as tasty without the pineapple (we’ll just keep that between us). However, we recommend you add a bit of teriyaki sauce to make up for the loss of sweetness.
