Pineapple Fried Rice

A quick and easy weeknight meal that’s so much cheaper, tastier and healthier than take-out!
Pineapple fried rice with shrimp
This is a healthy and quick, weeknight dinner! This dish comes together very quickly, so be sure to have your ingredients prepped and located near the stove before you start cooking. Chilled leftover rice works best in stir fries because it doesn’t clump together, so cook the rice in advance if time allows (one cup dry rice will yield slightly over two cups cooked rice.) Yields 2 large, restaurant-sized portions or 4 more modest portions.
