Expert Tips

You can substitute shrimp for chunks of chicken or salmon, or you can prepare a vegetarian version of the dish.

Fried rice is one of those international foods that Puerto Ricans have adopted as our own. I prefer to make a homemade version that’s to my taste, and vary the ingredients according to what I have in the fridge or what my family likes.

If you want, you can also add bean sprouts and smoked ham.

This fried rice makes a great accompaniment to grilled chicken or BBQ ribs.

Directions

  • 1 Cook the white rice and set aside.
  • 2 Add the oil to a wok or large pot. Sauté the onion for a few minutes without letting it brown.
  • 3 Add the pineapple and shrimp. Cook for 2 minutes only, without letting the ingredients get too gummy.
  • 4 Add the white rice and scrambled eggs. Mix all the ingredients well as you incorporate them into the wok.
  • 5 Pour in the soy sauce and mix well until you get that characteristic brownish color of fried rice.
  • 6 Serve immediately.
