Equipment

  • pan
  • bowl

Ingredients

  • 2 bags Success® Boil-in-Bag White Rice makes 4 cups
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper pepper
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or peanut oil
  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp (peeled, deveined, tail off)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 red onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper de-seeded and diced
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes optional but recommended
  • 1 cup frozen mango cubes
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro or parsley

Instructions

  • Cook the rice according to the instructions in the package, about 8-10 minutes.

  • In a large skillet or wok, heat both the coconut oil and vegetable or peanut oil over medium heat. Add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3-4 minutes or just until turning pink; season with salt and pepper to taste and place on a plate or in a bowl using a slotted spoon.
  • Add the onion and bell pepper to the skillet, and cook over medium-low to medium heat, stirring often, until vegetables have softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the coconut flakes and then the cubes of mango and cook, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the reserved soy sauce mixture and let heat for about 1 minute. Then add the rice and cook, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes or until heated through. Stir in the cooked shrimp and adjust the salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the cilantro/parsley. Serve the shrimp coconut fried rice immediately.
