Hubs and I went for a walk around Centennial Lake today since we have Patches this week. Of course, I was thinking about what to make for dinner the entire hour walk around the lake. =P

We hadn’t made Shrimp Fried Rice in a while so I suggested to hubs for dinner. He said ok…and then 10 minutes later…*BING* “let’s add pineapple to it!” Indifferent Hubs, just shrugged and said, “ok.” And Patches had no idear what we were talking about. She was in Doggie Heaven with all those new smells!

no head tilty this time!


Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice

1 small can of Pineapple Chunks
2 C cooked white rice
1/2 C Frozen Mixed Veggies
3/4 C Frozen Shrimp
1 TBSP Butter
1 TBSP Soy Sauce
1 TSP Ground Black Pepper
Salt, to taste
2-3 Eggs

1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over high heat.

2. Add Frozen Mixed Veggies and saute for 1-2 minutes over high heat.

3. Add cooked, peeled, deveined frozen shrimp. Saute for 3-4 minutes.

4. Add cooked rice, soy sauce, pepper and a pinch or so of salt. Mix very well, pressing the rice into the mixture as you go to get all of the seasoning and soy sauce coating each rice kernel. *you can also crack an egg in here ~see step 6*

5. Add drained pineapple chunks and saute for 5 minutes til pineapple is nice and hot.

6. Separate into bowls and add a sunny side up egg on top! *you can also choose to crack an egg or two when you put in the rice in step 4, I like this option most of the time because the egg coats the rice nicely and becomes fluffy!*

buon apetito!
