  • 1 pineapple
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 oz bacon diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup cashews
  • 9 oz shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 2 cups rice cooked
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper


  • To prepare the pineapple bowl, slice the pineapple lengthwise, just off center. Set aside the smaller slice for another use. Use a knife to cut around the perimeter of the pineapple meat to form a bowl shape Then cut the pineapple meat into slices. Use a spoon to scoop out the pineapple pieces. Cut the core out of the pineapple pieces and dice the pineapple meat ( you only need about a 1/3 of a cup of pineapple pieces for the fried rice.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in work or frying pan over high heat. Add the bacon and cook for 2 minutes or until bacon fat has rendered and the bacon is crispy. Then add the onion, garlic and cashews. Stir-fry for another minute until onion is soft and starting to char at the edges. Add the shrimp and stir-fry until almost cooked. Push ingredients to the side of the wok and add the egg into the middle. Allow to set for a minute and then stir-fry to combine.
  • Add the rice, curry powder, soy sauce, fish sauce, and pepper. Stir-fry until well combined. Add coriander and toss to combine. Serve in your pineapple bowl.


If you don’t have a fresh pineapple available, of course this can be made replacing with 1/3 cup of canned pineapple, and not serve it in a pineapple, but instead on a plate.
