Pineapple Fried Rice with Shrimp

Pineapple is quite expensive here yet relatively cheap during summer.Mostly the pineapple sell in US and A came from South America.I grew up eating pineapple but it's different kind of pineapple cultivar that can't be found here.I love pineapple fried rice but ordering this dish in Asian restaurant can be quite pricey.So whenever pineapple on sale I 'm sure get one or two count to stand by at home.Usually I will make rojak(fruit salad) with it but this time ,I decided to make Pineapple Fried Rice which I missed very much.Making fried rice with pineapple it's really heavenly delicious and tasty.

2 medium bowl jasmine cooked rice(overnight preferred)
20 medium shelled and clean shrimp
1 ct ripe pineapple ( remove the flesh,eyes and left the hollowed out shell)
1/1 lb bean sprout,clean
2 tbsp chicken bouillon powder
4 eggs
1 large onion,peeled and diced
1 cup green pea
2 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp white pepper powder
3 tbsp cooking oil


1:Heat wok or large skillet at medium heat with oil.When wok is hot enough crack in eggs and scramble for 1 minutes,dish out set aside.

2:Use the same wok,then drizzle some oil,add in diced onion and shrimp,stir -fry for 30 seconds or until shrimp curl.

3:Add in rice,green pea,seasoning and pineapple.Toss the ingredients at high heat for 5 minutes,then add in scramble eggs and bean sprout. Check the taste.

4:Dish out and place in pineapple shell.Serve warm.

Pineapple in Can can be replace for this dish.
