SERVES 2 | PREP 10 | COOK 15
2 tablespoon olive oil
6 large green prawns, peeled
1 cup pineapple chunks
1 carrot, julienned
2 sprigs spring onion
2 tablespoons tamari
1 tablespoon fish sauce
¼ cup cashews
2 cups cooked and cooled quinoa (see note below)
1 cup cooked and cooled brown rice (see note below)
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons fresh coriander, chopped roughly
Red long chilli, sliced finely, to serve
Tip: Use leftover rice that has been refrigerated, or for a speedy version look for pre-cooked quinoa and rice pouches. Freshly cooked, hot rice will make a too-sticky, glue-like texture in your fried rice.
Serve in hollowed out pineapples for a tropics-to-table touch!
