Pineapple & Shrimp Fried Rice

Easy recipe

Pineapple & Shrimp Fried Rice – what a wonderful mix of flavors. First you have the combination of pineapple, shrimp and rice, then add some garlic, jalapeños, ginger, soy sauce and basil and the result is a fantastic bowl full of tropical flavors. The wonder of this recipe is that you can easily substitute the shrimp for chicken or tofu and use any vegetables you like. I ;used green beans and a bit of spinach but sometimes I add carrots, pea pods or broccoli.

With the addition of pineapple to this recipe, you do not need tons of other vegetables. Use leftover white or brown rice, if you have it, or make the rice in the morning then chill it for a couple of hours before using.
