Servings: 4


  • For the shrimp:
  • 1 lb large uncooked shrimp peeled, devined and tails removed
  • 1 pinch of each salt garlic salt, pepper
  • 1 teaspoon each vegetable oil sesame oil, soy sauce (or tamari if gluten free)
  • For the cauliflower fried rice:
  • 1 head of cauliflower made into "rice" - 4 cups of cauliflower rice
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce divided (or tamari if gluten free)
  • 1/2 onion chopped (about 1/2-3/4 cup chopped onion)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 pinch of salt and 1 pinch of pepper
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables


  • To make the shrimp simply add the shrimp, salt, garlic salt, pepper, vegetable oil, sesame oil and soy sauce into a large skillet and cook over high heat, until the shrimp is no longer translucent and is cooked through (about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally).
  • Have your cauliflower riced and ready to go. Combine the 2 eggs with 1 teaspoon sesame oil in a separate bowl and beat and set aside.
  • To make the cauliflower fried rice in a large pot combine 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon soy sauce with chopped onions and garlic salt and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook over high heat stirring occasionally for 2 minutes, until the onions start to turn translucent and are fragrant.
  • Add the frozen vegetables to the pot and cook for 2 minutes, so that they begin to thaw.
  • Pour in the egg mixture and stir for 1 minute, until the egg appears to be cooked.
  • Add in the riced cauliflower and remaining tablespoon soy sauce and stir and cook on high for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Check for cauliflower 'doneness' - you want the cauliflower to not be hard anymore.
  • To serve divide the cauliflower among four plates or bowls and top with shrimp, then enjoy.


Make sure to have all your ingredients prepped and ready to go, because this dish cooks fast (beat the eggs with sesame oil and set aside before starting.)[br]Use Tamari instead of Soy Sauce if making gluten free
