Pineapple Fried Rice

A great rice recipe any day of the week for lunch or dinner. It’s so quick and easy to prepare. with full servings of shrimps, vegetables and good carbs. It’s so rich in flavor and very satisfying.  As an added bonus, you can substitute chicken, beef or grilled tofu for shrimps. 

I love rice, all kinds of rice, any way you can prepare them; Jollof rice, mushroom rice, chicken and rice, coconut rice, any rice! However, this pineapple fried rice is one of those reasons why I always have cooked rice in my refrigerator; even if I don’t the rice is easy to prepare anyway.

This shrimp and pineapple fried rice recipe is not your traditional Asian recipe. As much as it bears a strong semblance with the traditional, I have tweaked it a bit to make use of the everyday ingredients I use at home.

I often make this for my kids on school days because it cooks in no time and it keeps them full all through the school hours. Oh, the joy on their faces when they perceive the smell of this food melts my heart. I also make this to impress my friends when they come over.

Notes:

  1. Be sure to pat dry with a paper towel before cooking the shrimps
  2. Fresh pineapple or canned pineapple can be used for this recipe. However, if you choose to use fresh pineapple, be sure to use the ripe ones with yellow skin. They are sweet and juicy!
  3. I have used shrimps for this recipe but you can use chicken or beef or keep it vegetarian.
  4. For best results use a day old rice. If you don’t have that, you can use freshly cooked rice but be sure to let the rice cool down completely before stir-frying it. This helps the fried rice to come out with well-separated grains.
  5. Use a non-stick pan that holds heat well and large enough to hold all ingredients comfortably.
  6. I used basmati rice which comes out with more well-separated grains when cooked and there’s also a noticeable flavor and texture when you use basmati rice; however, since this is a very versatile recipe, any type of rice can also be used.
