any tips?

  • If the shrimps are frozen, unfreeze them before using them, as they change the taste of the rice and the texture of the shrimps won’t be as crispy and juicy.
  • Use a big pan or a wok. The rice, vegetables, and pineapple have a big volume, it can be a little too much for a medium-sized pan. So keep that in mind before cooking.
  • This one-pan shrimp rice recipe is perfect for meal prep. You can cook it on Sunday and store it in 6 different containers (6 portions).
  • Garnish the rice with lime. This is going to taste super fresh and delicious.
  • Be careful when using the spices. Use it as said in the instruction. If you use too much turmeric, the dish is going to be ruined, because the turmeric spice will dominate and give the rice a beautiful color but a strong turmeric taste (which I don’t like). It doesn´t harmonize well with the other ingredients.
  • If you like sauces, try this dish with garlic chili sauce. It tastes heavenly good.
