Today we have a delicious dish for you which will be appreciated by all lovers of both Chinese and Mediterranean cuisine. It’s called shrimp fried rice.

Shrimp is a delicious and healthy source of protein on any diet. Also, shrimp is an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acids and it contains vitamin B12, selenium, and also antioxidants, which increase the body’s immunity.

Instead of white rice, we use cauliflower. To be more specific, we make rice from cauliflower. This is a lot healthier than rice and has a lot less amount of carbohydrates.

Eggs, in our recipe, are a source of extra protein and healthy fats. Be sure to add this ingredient to your diet because of the minerals such as iron, phosphorus, iodine, and selenium.

We also added garlic and ginger, which are known for their properties to accelerate metabolism and enhance immunity. In addition, they add a special flavor and piquancy to the dish.

We also added a shallot onion to the recipe, which has a very delicate taste and aroma. And it contains a lot of vitamin C and minerals.

Feel free to experiment it with different seasonings and sources of protein such as pork or chicken instead of shrimp. Bon Appetit!

Use a food processor to shred the cauliflower until you obtain the rice-sized pieces. Drain the riced cauliflower well and set aside.

In a frying pan over medium-high heat, add olive oil in and fry bacon. Once it becomes crispy, remove and chop into small pieces. Set aside.

In the same frying pan, add olive oil in then add ginger and garlic. Saute for 30 seconds until they release an amazing smell. Add cauliflower rice in and stir well. Cover with a lid and cook on low for 6-8 minutes.

You can also cook without the lid on, just make sure to stir well to avoid the cauliflower gets burnt at the bottom.
