Pineapple Fried Rice

pineapple brown fried rice eggs shrimps

Do you like Asian flavours? If the answer is yes then you will like this rice. If the answer is no, then I don’t think this is for you. Try some Nigerian style fried rice instead. That’s a funny preamble right? Well, when I made this hen, my husband ate some and he said “Baby  I don’t think I like pineapples in my rice. Lmao. I understand that sweet and savory isn’t for everyone, it’s specially difficult if you like the African flavor profile of spicy and savory.

If you like a little adventure, then this is a great recipe to try. I love the tart and subtle sweet flavors the pineapples add to the rice. I made use of brown rice in this recipe, feel free to substitute regular parboiled rice or basmati. The only rule is that the rice should be at least 1 day old, oid rice work best in fried rice dishes.

You still want to try the dish? Oye lets go

          Olive oil isn’t good for high heat cooking…. coconut oil is a better alternative.
