Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice, a simple and practical meal. The pineapple brings a welcome sweet and tangy flavor to the fried rice. The presentation of this meal is unique and the pineapple makes for a conversation piece as well as an eye-catching bowl. I recommend not skimping out on the shrimp when feeding your family as no one wants to walk away from the dinner table still hungry.
