Pinneapple Fried Rice with ShrimpsOPERATIONCOOKINGCOOKING
Dutch people adore Thai food and even if I am really not used to combine sweet fruit and salty dishes, since I have been living here I tried to experiment as much as I could. And this is one of those recipes that just works perfect for me. It has a…
beautiful sweet-sour balance and the soy-saltiness together with the garlic-spicyness makes a great melange out of all these ingredients.
- 1 cup brown rice
- 1 cup pineapple (or 1 small pineapple)
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup peas
- 1 red bell pepper (medium)
- 1 spring onion
- 2 large eggs
- 150 grams cashew nuts
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 5 drops Sriracha (optional)
- 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
- 500 grams shrimps (cleaned)
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- Boil the rice until almost tender, 5-6 minutes. It will cook fully, together with the other ingredients. Discard the water and set aside.
- Pat dry the shrimps and sprinkle with salt. Melt the butter in a pan, crush the garlic and release fragrance for 1 minute and fry the the shrimps on each side for approx. 4 minutes, or until pink. Remove shrimps from the pan and do not discard the butter.
- Beat the eggs lightly in a bowl and heat the pan. Pour the eggs in the pan and scramble them using a fork. You want pieces of egg that are not too big. Place in a bowl and set aside.
- In the same pan that you made the shrimps and the eggs toast the cashew nuts, for about 3-4 minutes on medium fire. Remove from the pan and set aside.
- Grab a big wok and fry the green onions in vegetable oil. Add the rice, paprika, pineapple, all the sauces and spices and the chicken broth and mix. Let it simmer until it starts to fry, for about another 5 minutes, over medium-high fire. Add the eggs and mix together. Plate in a pineapple for some extra exotic flavour!
