Rest Day Recipe
SHRIMP & PINEAPPLE FRIED RICE
Recipe courtesy of Black Iron Nutrition
4 cups cooked rice
1 1/2 lbs medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 Tbsp avocado oil (or any cooking oil of your choice)
1 cup pineapple, diced
1 cup edamame
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeno, chopped
5-6 scallions, chopped
1 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
1 Tbsp sambal oelek, or Sriracha sauce
Cook rice according to package directions and allow to cool.
Heat a large pan or wok on high eat. Add oil and shrimp and cook for a few minutes, until opaque (about 3-5 minutes); set aside.
Add the scallions, garlic and jalapeño and saute for about a minute, until fragrant. Then add rice, shrimp, pineapple and edamame and stir for a minute or two.
Add soy sauce, fish sauce and sambal oelek and cook for another 30-60 seconds.
*Tip: for when you’re in a rush, use frozen rice, frozen pineapple and frozen edamame. Shrimp can be defrosted quickly by running under cold water for 10 minutes. The great thing about this recipe is you can adjust the portions of the ingredients to work for your macros. I also suggest adding a little sambal oelek at a time in case you’re sensitive to spicy foods.
