Shrimp Rock !

I have been reading about the health benefits of coconut oil.

Yesterday I watched Daphne Oz prepare a fried rice dish using coconut oil with her mother on The Chew.

I was motivated to take the basic idea and use my rice cooker and cast iron skillet to make a spicy version.

Since tofu is reserved for Tuesdays, and it was MP’s favorite day- Friday, I set out looking for the perfect shrimp.

How blessed am I to have Santa Monica Seafood in the neighborhood?










Rock Shrimp from Florida were the ideal size and texture for the brown rice.








8 ounces Rock Shrimp

Shitake mushrooms, fresh ginger, shredded carrots, cilantro...

onion, snow peas, garlic, and scallions

1 Tablespoon coconut oil


building the layers.

a quick cooking of the shrimp

before adding








cooked brown rice

slices of  a cooked egg

Dressed with soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame seed oil and plenty of Garlic Head


Two Forks.
