Because of its intense sweetness, pineapple­—historically called the “princess of fruits”­—is often used to accent savory flavors. Here, we’re celebrating one of its most delicious, classic uses: as a bright component of fried rice. We’re tossing pineapple with plump shrimp, toasted cashews, sambal oelek (an Indonesian chile sauce) and more, giving our fried rice plenty of satisfying flavor and texture. And we’re adding a special touch to the rice itself by infusing it with garlic and lime zest before finishing it with the rest of the ingredients.

Shrimp & Pineapple Fried Rice with Toasted Cashews & Sambal Oelek ingredients

2 Make the garlic-lime rice:

In a small pot, heat 2 teaspoons of oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the rice, a big pinch of salt and 1½ cups of water; heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer 11 to 13 minutes, or until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from heat and stir in the lime zest; fluff the cooked rice with a fork.

3 Toast the cashews:

While the rice simmers, heat a medium, dry pan (nonstick, if you have one) on medium-high until hot. Add the cashews and toast, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe out the pan.

Add the shrimp & pineapple:
5 Add the shrimp & pineapple:

While the vegetables cook, pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. Add the seasoned shrimp and pineapple to the pan of vegetables. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through.

Finish & serve your dish:
6 Finish & serve your dish:

To the pan of vegetables, shrimp and pineapple, add the garlic-lime rice, soy sauce, toasted cashews, the juice of 2 lime wedges and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and heated through; season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide between 2 dishes. Garnish with the green tops of the scallions and remaining lime wedges. Enjoy!
