Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice

I love fried rice - it's my favorite dish to order out for Chinese food. Pineapple shrimp fried rice is so easy to make - your whole family will love it!

Pineapple shrimp fried rice is a very simple dish to make. The ingredients are so bright and healthy - I feel very good eating it.

Look how bright and colorful the ingredients were! Knowing all that is going in - you know you want to try it!


How do you make Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice? 

You make rice and while that's cooking prep all of your ingredients. Then in a hot non-stick pan, saute the shrimp for a couple of minutes and squeeze limes on the shrimp. Set the shrimp aside and saute the diced ingredients. Then add the cooked and cooled rice - frying that with the veggies, add the sauces and then the shrimp back in and you're done.


This is such a light and refreshing dish - the fact that you stir fry it for a few minutes actually balances out the light, fresh zinginess of the pineapple and lime shrimp. This is a great recipe for so many reasons - it's healthy, it's easy, it's zippy (VIP really) and it reheats well! I took the leftovers for lunch the next day and they were great!
