Better Than Thai Takeout: Pineapple and Shrimp Fried Rice
Winter shminter. I’m over it. I went to the tropical fruit section at the grocery store trying to disregard the freezing temperatures all together and came across the cutest baby pineapple — I swooped it right up and knew exactly what I was going to make.
Mirza and I really enjoy ordering Thai food for dinner, we order it fairly often actually. Typically, I go for some tom yum soup and drunken noodles — always delicious in my book. But lately I’ve been on this kick of ordering pineapple fried rice.
The first time I ordered it, I didn’t want any sort of protein in it; however, they gave me shrimp anyway—well, I’m glad they did! The combination of pineapple and shrimp in the salty fried rice is amazing. So much so, that I really wanted to make it for dinner on my own recently, and did just that!
