Fried Cauliflower Rice with Shrimp

Written by COA Nutrition Team On August 30, 2019

Cauliflower rice with shrimp – low-carb, high protein and healthy recipe. And most important its delicious and easy to make!


  • 1 head cauliflower (+-2lb)
  • 12oz shrimp, peeled and cleaned
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons Chopped parsley


  1. Cut the cauliflower into small florets/Chunks. Working in batches, place the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse (in 1-2 second pulses) until the cauliflower has the texture of rice or couscous – don’t over process or it will get mushy. Set aside.
  2. In a large pan heat half of the olive oil, add the shrimp, season with salt and pepper, cook in one layer for 2 minutes, flip, season the other side and cook minutes more. Remove from pan.
  3. In the same pan, heat remaining olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onion, sauté until slightly golden. Add crushed garlic and diced carrots, cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until carrots are tender.
  4. Add cauliflower “rice”, season with salt and pepper. Add soy sauce, sesame oil and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-5 minutes, until the cauliflower has softened. Don’t overcook. Turn the heat off and add chopped parsley. Serve warm!

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Make ahead and freeze

Work in a clever way! Make double batches of recipes when making dinner. That way, you can serve half and freeze half for another day when you don’t have time to cook.
