Shrimp and Cauliflower Fried Rice

You’ll love this easy, low carb, low calorie version of the classic Portuguese Shrimp and Rice dish that’s one my favorite recipes on this blog. This recipe only takes about 20 minutes to fully prepare and cook. Enjoy!


1 12-16 oz. package frozen cauliflower rice ( I used Trader Joe’s)

1 small onion (minced)

1/2 to 1 pound raw medium shrimp de-veined and shelled

2 cloves garlic (minced)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 cube chicken bouillon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon paprika

parsley (minced for garnish)


Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until translucent in a non stick skillet. Add bouillon and and let dissolve. Season shrimp with salt and paprika. Add cauliflower to onion and garlic, stir to dissolve frozen pieces, and cook for about 5 minutes while stirring often.

Add shrimp to cauliflower, mix well and let cook for about 5 minutes or until shrimp turns pink and fully cooked.

Garnish with parsley.

Perfect pairing with Portuguese Vinho Verde wine.
