Shrimp Fried “Rice” (AIP/Paleo) is a sheet pan recipe using riced cauliflower instead of white rice. Perfect for people avoiding grains or carbs!Jump to Recipe
I have a question for you. How do you feel about cauliflower? Some of us love it, while others only tolerate it. As a rice substitute, some people really don’t care for it at all.
My husband is definitely in that last category.
I was a wee bit trepidatious to present this dish for dinner one night, knowing how he feels about the ol’ cauli rice. Rather than make a big deal about it, though, I just played nonchalant.
Guess what! He likes it! (“Hey, Mikey!” 😀)
Truth be told, I’m not a huge fan of cauli rice myself. I prefer something starchier. But there is enough going on in this recipe to cover the crucifer-y flavor of cauliflower rice, and trick me into thinking I’m eating the real stuff. I hope you will like it, too!
How to get cauliflower rice
The easiest way to get riced cauliflower is to buy it this way! I do not recommend the frozen stuff as it gets mushy and watery. Trader Joe’s sells small bags of fresh riced cauliflower, and so does my regular grocery.
In the absence of either of those, you will need a food processor. Cut the cauliflower into chunks, then process by pulsing. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed, and stop when the pieces are roughly the size of rice.
But enough about that…
Go get you some Shrimp Fried “Rice.” You’ll be getting lots of veg, as well as the benefits of eating shellfish. And if you’re not too squeamish about microwaving leftovers, this recipe actually holds up pretty well the next day.
As always, I’m wishing you love and healing!
