Shrimp fried “rice”

Posted by piphunt on January 1, 2012 in Adventures of Pip |

The idea of cauliflower “rice” isn’t new or original. But I really like it. I first came across it on Nom Nom Paleo’s site, and I occasionally go through weeks where I only want to eat it. For breakfast, for dinner, maybe for lunch (ahh but then I would have to have leftovers, crap). In other words, it’s really, really good. Eat it!


Shrimp Fried “rice” 

Serves one


What you will need:

Large Frying pan

Small frying pan



1/4 head cauliflower, chopped finely or blasted in the food processor until it is rice like
1/4 yellow onion
One garlic glove, diced
1 cm. Ginger, diced

handful of mushrooms (I had some shitake ones on hand but anything will do!)
6-7 shrimp (about 4 ounces)
Bok choy

1 egg, whisked

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 teaspoon umboshi plum vinegar (or lime juice, you just need an acid to balance the oil)

coconut oil for sauteing

Cayenne, salt, and cumin to taste




Saute the onions in coconut oil until they start to clear.  Then toss in cauliflower, diced garlic, ginger,  mushrooms, sesame oil, vinegar and spices. Allow to simmer on a medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. The cauliflower should take about 7-10 minutes to cook thoroughly. Then, add the whisked egg, incorporating it quickly so that you don’t end up with scrambled eggs and cauliflower. Not quite the same effect.


In a separate pan, saute the shrimp and sliced bok choy until the shrimp is finished, add to the fried “rice”. Dinner time!


This is a quick and easy meal. It takes me about 20 minutes from start (prepping veggies) to finish, and that usually includes some sort of distraction, like Twitter. Seriously, so distracting and so addicting. You can do it!
