shrimp-stuffed-pineappleA shrimp stuffed pineapple is a perfect lunch dish.   The ingredients are shrimp, coconut rice, and pineapple salsa.

PINEAPPLE SALSA: 1 pineapple cut in half lengthwise, scoop out the pineapple flesh.  Chop up the pineapple and dump the pineapple flesh, about into a bowl. Add the juice of 2 limes and the zest of 1 lime, 1/4 cup red onions, chopped, 1/4 cup red and yellow bell pepper, chopped, 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped, 2 teaspoons jalapeno pepper, finely chopped, and 1/2 tablespoon garlic oil. Toss and taste, add salt as needed refrigerate until you are ready to assemble the boat.

COCONUT RICE: 2 cups coconut water, 1 cup white long-grain rice, 1 tablespoon butter, 1/8 teaspoon sea salt. Get out a saucepan, add the water, bring the water to a boil, then add the rice butter and salt.  Reduce the heat to a simmer, put a  lid on the pan and cook for 17-18 minutes or until the rice is tender or the water is absorbed.  Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside, DO NOT REMOVE THE LID, for at 5-7 minutes.

SHRIMP: 1 tablespoon garlic oil, 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin oil, 2 tablespoons garlic, minced, 1/2 pound shrimp, deveined and peeled, 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 3 tablespoons fish stock, 1 teaspoon fresh basil, chopped, 1 teaspoon flat-leaf parsley, chopped, 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning salt.  Get out a heavy skillet, add the oils to the skillet to a medium-high.  Add the garlic, cook, until the garlic starts to soften.  Add the shrimp, cook for about 2 minutes, reduce the heat to a simmer, add the remaining ingredient, continue to cook, or until the shrimp are fully cooked for another 5 minutes– the shrimp will start to curl and turn orange.

It’s time to assemble the boat, follow the picture you’re done.
