This is my simpler version of pineapple fried rice that is served at your favorite Thai restaurants. I’ve seen many variations of this delicious dish. Some have raisins, some have curry, and some with chopped roasted cashews in it and you may definitely add them if you wish.

As far as pineapples, you can use canned ones or you can use the fresh ones. If you are using fresh pineapple, just make sure that it is ripe and sweet.

    One of my favorites. I would add nuts but not raisins.

      I’m glad you like cashews and me too not a big fan of raisins in a dish. I only like it by itself. Thank you, Norma! :)

    I love pineapple fried rice! I sometimes make it with shrimp, sometimes with leftover pork roast. The shrimp version is better, although I like both. This looks excellent – thanks so much.

    You just made us one of my favorite fried rice dishes! I’ve made it a couple of time at home but it’s never as good as what I buy at a restaurant. Yours of course is restaurant quality and I can’t wait to make it. I have leftover rice in the fridge A LOT, so this is a definite. I do have a question – do you have a suggestion for substituting the sambal oelek. That’s the one chile ingredients I don’t have in my house. :) Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

      Hi MJ,

      Thank you and I’m glad you asked. Only for this dish (without altering the flavor), the closest substitute for Sambal Oelek that I can think of is Sriracha. Because of Sriracha has some sweetness and garlicky flavor in it and so as this dish. Plus you are not using too much, so no big deal I guess. However, you can make your own sambal with pureed red chilli peppers(hottest you can get), vinegar, and salt. I hope you and Bobby had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well. :)

    It looks and sounds so unusual! Actually I think I have never seen such a dish in Thai restaurants here… I would definitely use the fresh fruit (I don’t like canned pineapple). Your photographs are so sunny, as always!
