Fried rice is one of those things that everyone loves, and since I always keep frozen cauliflower rice and frozen shrimp in my freezer, this is a meal that makes its appearance quite often around these parts.
For those that still want their real fried rice, here’s the perfect copycat recipe for that Shrimp Fried Rice.
INGREDIENTS FOR SHRIMP FRIED CAULIFLOWER RICE
For a successful, quick, and easy Fried Rice recipe, I strongly advise to prep all your ingredients before starting. We will need:
- peeled and deveined shrimp
- lightly beaten eggs
- chopped green onions
- minced garlic
- minced ginger
- frozen or fresh peas
- frozen or fresh diced carrots
- chopped red bell pepper
- cauliflower rice
- soy sauce or tamari sauce
HOW TO MAKE SHRIMP FRIED CAULIFLOWER RICE
First step is to make the cauliflower rice.
- You’ll want to cut up a head of cauliflower into florets, add the florets to a food processor and pulse a few times, or until the cauliflower starts to resemble “rice”.
- For full instructions on how to make cauliflower rice, please refer to my post, HOW TO MAKE AND STORE CAULIFLOWER RICE.
Next, we need to cook the shrimp for a couple minutes, then remove from the pan and put aside.
In the same pan, you’ll cook the eggs to a scramble, remove from the pan and put aside.
Next, you’ll want to cook the onions, garlic, carrots, and peppers for about 4 minutes before adding in the rest of the veggies and cauliflower rice, and continue to cook for 5 more minutes.
Add the cooked shrimp and eggs back into the pan, stir in some soy sauce or tamari sauce, and serve.
I have been fairly obsessed with the idea of cauliflower “rice” ever since this delicious Coconut Lime Cauliflower Rice. It’s aaaah-mazing! Honest to goodness, this finely “riced” cauliflower is one of those cheater foods that is actually GOOD.
Also, this cheater, grain-free, cauliflower shrimp fried rice recipe is the best thing since I (and you) discovered the original version in the take-out menu. A delicious and healthy alternative to fast fried food, and it’s seriously sooo, sooo yummy!
One more bonus – store leftovers in airtight containers and in the fridge for up to 4 days.
