Delicious Shrimp & Fried Cauliflower Rice
1 Large Head of Cauliflower Grated (use a grater or food processor)
1-2 Bags of Shrimp (Large in size 31-40 count frozen) or 2 Pounds of fresh shrimp (whatever kind)
1 Cup Broccoli (chopped into bite size pieces)
3 Stalks of Celery (Chopped finely)
1 Bunch Green Onions (chopped)
2 Medium Carrots (grated or chopped finely)
1 Cup Sliced Mushrooms
1/2 Small Onion finely chopped (optional)
Large Egg or Egg White Substitute
2 Tbsp Fish Sauce (low sodium)
2-3 Tbsp Soy Sauce (low sodium)
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1/2 cup vegetable broth (optional)
Sea Salt & Pepper to taste
Pure Sesame Oil (optional to taste)
Use a large frying pan or wok and on high heat start with coconut oil, garlic and chopped onion. Let brown for a minute or two then add much rooms, vegetable broth or water, bring temperature down and let mushrooms sweat until softened.
Next add in the grated cauliflower, keep the temperature medium/low and let the cauliflower rice soften.
Next make a hole in the middle of the pan and add in the egg/egg substitute, leave for a minute and then once it starts to cook, scramble, then add into rest of rice.
Add in 1 Tbsp of fish sauce and 1 Tbsp of soy sauce, mix and then add in carrots and celery and let soften.
Once soft, stir the vegetables into the rice and then add in the shrimp, sea salt and pepper to taste.
Once the shrimp is cooked add in the broccoli (I usually microwave the broccoli for a few seconds so it’s almost already cooked).
Then add the remaining Tbsp of fish sauce and soy sauce, stir the contents of the pan and then let sit and simmer for a minute or two.
Transfer to serving plates, adding some green onions on top for garnish and a (very light) drizzle of pure sesame seed oil on top.
There you have it! A super healthy, incredibly satisfying dinner that is great for Good Friday or any day of the week. Feel free to sub out the shrimp for chicken or tofu, or just make without the meat as a side for a great addition to any meal. You won’t even miss the “real rice”…the cauliflower is so good.
Enjoy and be well!
