Shrimp and tropical fried rice
I don’t know about you, but it’s time for me to make an escape to the coast to soak up some sun and eat some delicious seafood.  Since it will be a few weeks until I am actually able to make it to the beach, I came up with a simple recipe for Easy Coconut Shrimp and Tropical Fried Rice.  One of the great things about it is that it is quick and easy thanks to a few shortcuts.

Shortcuts Make This Easy

It’s okay to use shortcuts when it comes to making dinner.  We don’t always have time to make everything from scratch.  (At least I don’t!)  So here are the shortcuts I use to make Easy Coconut Shrimp and Tropical Fried Rice.

  1. For the shrimp, I use SeaPak® Jumbo Coconut Shrimp.  It already comes pre-breaded and there are two options for preparing it – baking or frying.
  2. I use rice that has been cooked earlier in the week and refrigerated.  All I have to do is take it out and start stir-frying it.
  3. I buy pre-chopped onions and use garlic that comes in a squeeze bottle.
  4. I buy pre-cut pineapple chunks and then all I have to do is cut them into smaller pieces.  (Canned pineapple tidbits that have been drained work well, too.)

Using these shortcuts, I can have dinner done in 30 minutes.  A dinner that transports me to the beach where there are no worries and the food is divine.

Knowing that most of us need simple meal solutions (and wine pairings!), Seapak® has created a new recipe book that features 40 meal solutions that help make decisions easy, not to mention weekly shopping a breeze.  There are a couple of ways that you can get the recipe book:  through your local Walmart Grocery Pickup (it will be included in a grab bag for first time online grocery shoppers who order between March 1st and the first half of April) or online (click here to get it).
