Ingredients

  • 2 to 3 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon stir-fry oil or vegetable oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 5 green onions, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons chili-garlic paste or sriracha

How to Make It

  1. Heat wok over high heat until a few drops of water evaporate immediately. Swirl sesame oil in pan to coat. (If using a nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.) Add shrimp, and stir-fry 3 minutes or until done. Transfer to a large bowl; cover and keep warm.

  2. Heat stir-fry oil in wok over high heat (medium-high, if using a nonstick skillet). Add garlic and ginger; cook 30 seconds or until fragrant. Stir in pineapple and rice, and stir-fry 1 to 3 minutes or until heated through. Stir in green onions and cooked shrimp.

  3. Combine soy sauce and chili-garlic paste in a small bowl; stir into rice mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve immediately.
