Are you tired of your weeknight standby suppers? Want to try a recipe with a little more oomph that still doesn’t take a lot of extra time? Make this pineapple shrimp fried cauliflower rice; it’s a delicious dinner that incorporates healthy seafood.

This recipe is a cinch to make. Once everything is prepared, mise en place style, this dish comes together very quickly. Just make sure to not toss out the pineapple shell — it makes for a fuss-free (and stunning) bowl to eat your meal from.

The cauliflower is a great low-carb, grain-free stand-in for fluffy white rice. The onions and peppers add a nice crisp-tender veggie texture and color. The flaky shrimp makes for a flavorful protein source in this dish, while the curry powder and coconut balance out the pineapple’s acidic sweetness.

Cauliflower, onions, peppers, garlic, curry powder, and more make this fried “rice” a nutrient powerhouse. Pair that with the healthy fats from coconut oil and dense protein from shrimp, and you have a healthy dinner!

What’s more, pineapple contains a special enzyme called bromelain. This substance has anti-inflammatory and gut healing properties as it helps your body break down and digest protein. It comes with other health benefits, too, including:
