Fried rice is so pervasive in Chinese-American restaurants that it rarely gets the respect it deserves. Almost always an afterthought accompaniment to an entree, tasty fried rice is too often relegated to second tier status. Not so with our whole-grain version made with seared shrimp, toasted cashews, and pineapple. Elevate this takeout standard with our healthy rendition, and you'll see this dish in a whole new light.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Small Pot
  • 1 Small Bowl
  • 1 Large Pan
  • Step 1 - Cook the Rice
    1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with brown rice and 1 ¾ cup water to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender and all water has been absorbed, about 17-20 minutes.

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Trim and thinly slice whites of green onions into ½" pieces. Slice remaining green onions at an angle (bias). Cut roasted red pepper into ¼" dice. Combine soy sauce, ginger, and sambal in a small bowl. Rinse shrimp, pat dry, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Shrimp

    Cook the Shrimp

    Heat a large pan over high heat and add shrimp. Sear shrimp on one side, about 3 minutes, until browned. Remove to a plate and reserve for finishing in a later step. Return pan to heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add white parts of green onions to pan and cook 1 minute. Push white parts of green onion to a corner of the pan and add liquid eggs to the center. Scramble eggs, avoiding green onions, by stirring constantly until eggs are fluffy and firm for about 2 minutes.

  • Step 5 - Finish the Fried Rice

Add frozen pineapple, frozen peas, roasted red peppers, and return shrimp to pan. Continue to cook while stirring, 2-3 minutes. Stir in remaining green onions (reserving a small handful for garnish) and cook until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 130 degrees.
