I love fried rice, it’s one of my favorite foods! This shrimp fried rice dish is inspired by a Malaysian restaurant I used to frequent before they closed down. You may also like this vegetarian fried rice with edamame, or this low-carb cauliflower fried rice instead.

Penang, in Soho used to be one of my favorite places to eat, when they closed down I was so upset. They had the best roti canai appetizer and calamari dish ever!

Since they closed, I often remake this stir fry dish at home. If you rather not go through the extra work of hollowing out a pineapple, you could simply serve this in a bowl. I had my friends over for dinner and they were really impressed with this flavors and presentation of this dish. My husband however thought the serving sizes should be larger, so if you’re feeding hungry men, you may want to make extra. The ladies were perfectly happy with this, and it left room for dessert!

Tips

It’s best to use leftover cold rice when making fried rice. I love keeping Trader Joe’s frozen brown rice on hand for stir fries, it’s so convenient and makes this dish come together in minutes!

Liquid Aminos or Coconut Aminos can be substituted for the soy sauce.
