Shrimp Fried Rice

Dinner, Main Dish, Side Dishes


2 cups raw cauliflower

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons finely diced red bell pepper

4 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions

½ cup cooked salad shrimp

¼ teaspoon minced fresh garlic

3 tablespoons soy sauce

3 large eggs, beaten

Salt to taste, if needed.


1. Grate the fresh cauliflower using the largest holes of a cheese grater. You can also use a food processor fitted with a grating blade.

2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper and 3 tablespoons of the green onions, and cook for 1 minute.

3 Add the cauliflower, shrimp, and garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 4 to 5 minutes until the cauliflower is tender.

4 Add the soy sauce and stir. Add the eggs to one corner of the pan but don’t stir for 1 minute. This allows the eggs to cook for a bit, which will prevent them from completely breaking up and disappearing into the mix.

5 As soon as the eggs are soft-cooked, remove the skillet from the heat and gently fold the eggs into the mixture. Add salt or more soy sauce to taste and serve garnished with the remaining 1 tablespoon of green onions.


It’s completely normal for there to be extra liquid in the pan when this is finished. Use a slotted spoon to drain it as you serve.
