Reviews for Shrimp and Pineapple Fried Rice
"This seems to be more than 6 servings. My husband and I had mixed feelings about it. I enjoyed everything but the pineapple (I thought it just didn't seem to go well with the other flavors). He said he liked the pineapple but felt everything else needed more flavor. The only things I did differently was add in a stir fry mix of veggies instead of just peas, and used white rice instead of brown. Everything else was exactly as written. All-in-all I'd probably make this again but I'd tweak it."
"Made this for a quick meal. We used 2 cups of diced ham in place of shrimp.Had all the ingredients on hand and we like white rice instead of brown rice.Will definitely make this again. Lots of flavor."
"Very easy and delicious. Great for a week night meal for a working family. My husband and 3-year old daughter loved it. Will definitely make again."
"I made this tonight and we ate every bite. Enjoyed the pineapple, nuts,, and egg, but I don't think I will make this again. It was easy to prepare and if you're feeding a family it would make a great week night meal. Sorry, we just didn't enjoy it enough to add to my recipe box."
