Make the sun shine in your kitchen with this Caribbean-style fried rice with shrimp, mango, pineapple and ginger.
For the rice:
Rinse and drain the basmati rice. Place the rice in a small saucepan with 3½ cups of water and the pinch of salt. Bring the rice to a boil over high heat, lower the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes until most of the water has been absorbed. Place a tight fitting lid on the pan and remove from heat and let sit for another 10 minutes. Spread the rice out on a sheet pan and chill completely before proceeding with the recipe.
For the fried rice:
Heat a large nonstick pan with canola oil over high heat. Add shrimp, then the ginger and scallions to the pan and very quickly toss until fragrant. Add the rice, pineapple, mango, and apple and season to taste with salt, pepper and cayenne. Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
