When I went to grocery shopping the other day, I saw this big pile of fresh looking pineapple on the produce aisle. I quickly think that I will use this fruit for recipes. But of course, I need the quick and easy meal to fit the busy weekday’s routines. Seriously, looking at pineapple at this time it reminds me that summer is officially almost here, am I right?
As soon as I get home, I quickly prepared this recipe. I turn it into Shrimp Pineapple Fried Rice because my family loves to eat shrimp, and shrimp with pineapple is a tasty pair. Add more vegetables and protein to this fried rice so it will be a complete meal.
I use long grain jasmine rice for the recipe. To make the rice less sticky when making fried rice, I recommend using the rice you cooked it the day before that stored in the fridge overnight. If you sort of time, you can use the rice you prepare the same day but only use water less than it says on direction when you cook the rice.
To cut up the prep time, you can use pre-cut vegetables or cut them up when you do meal prep and store it in the fridge until you ready to use it.

If you don’t eat seafood, feel free to use any meat you like. The chicken piece is an excellent choice. You can also replace the egg and shrimp with tofu for the vegetarian option.
