Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice {Grain-Free}
For Shrimp
  • 1 lb medium Shrimp (cleaned/shelled/deveined)
  • 1 Tb Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tb Sesame Oil
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ⅛ tsp Cayenne Pepper*
  • ¼ tsp Ancho Powder
  • ¼ tsp Ground White Pepper
  • 2 tsp Grated Ginger**
  • 1 clove Minced Garlic
To make Fried Rice
  • 1 Head Cauliflower
  • ½ C Diced Carrot
  • ½ C Frozen Peas
  • 1 tb Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tb Sesame Oil
  • 3 tsp Grated Ginger
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp Cayenne Powder
  • ½ Ancho Powder
  • ½ Ground White Pepper
  • ½ Salt
  • The Juice 1 Lime
  • 2 Eggs
  • Chopped Green Onion (optional)
  1. Using a food processor (at least a 9-cup processor), shred the cauliflower till it has the consistency of rice. Don't have a food processor? You can shred it with a cheese grater.
  2. Place the riced cauliflower into a microwave-safe dish, cover with plastic wrap (folding back one corner), and microwave it for 5-7 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, pour the olive and sesame oil into a wok and place over medium-high heat till shimmering. Place the shrimp into the oil and season with the ginger, cayenne, ancho powder, white pepper, garlic and salt.
  4. Once the shrimp has cooked and turned pink, use tongs to remove it to a plate.
  5. In the remaining liquid/oil, add the diced carrots and the peas, cooking till they become tender. (you may need to add more oil during the process to keep them from sticking)
  6. Once they tender, add the microwaved cauliflower rice, stirring occassionally as the rice "fries" and begins to become a little brown.
  7. Season the rice with the additional ginger, garlic, ancho powder, cayenne, white pepper, salt and lime juice
  8. Move the seasoned cauliflower up the sides of the pan. Crack two eggs into the center of the wok, let them cook for a few seconds and then scramble them and stir to mix them in with a the rest of the cauliflower.
  9. Add the cooked shrimp back into pan, stirring once to incorporate. Let the ingredients cook together a few more minutes so the shrimp can warm back up.
  10. Turn off the heat and serve immediately. (if desired, garnish with chopped green onion)
*If you want a less-spicy dish, you can back off the cayenne, white pepper, and ancho powders by ⅛ of a teaspoon.

**To save time, I keep frozen ginger and garlic cubes on hand. 1 cube = 1 teaspoon for the ginger and, for the garlic, 1 cube = 1 clove. I use the Dorot brand, which can be found in the frozen vegetables section of your store.
