Chinese invented fried rice but I think it’s the genius of the Thais that make fried rice sinfully delicious; they concocted pineapple fried rice. With the addition of fresh pineapple, flavored with shrimp paste and fish sauce, pineapple fried rice is the only fried rice I really wanted to eat. Not only does it look visually appealing, the taste is simply mouthwatering and utterly appetizing.
I had some leftover pineapple from and made this pineapple fried rice for lunch. I prepped the ingredients for about 10-15 minutes, then fired up the wok and cook the rice. All it takes was 20 minutes max, from prep to finish. The tempting good smell while I was working set my stomach rumbling. My lunch was absolutely delightful.
Do try out this pineapple fried rice recipe. If you don’t have fresh pineapple, canned ones would do, but nothing beats biting into sweet, juicy, and slightly tangy fresh pineapple that bursts with freshness and flavors. Another fried rice that is seriously delectable is Malaysian belacan (shrimp paste) fried rice but I will have to share the recipe with you in the future.
