Khao Pad Sapparot (Khao Pad Sapparod) is a Thai fried rice dish with pineapple. The sweetness of the pineapple complements the shrimp and curry flavors well. This particular recipe combines shrimp, carrots, onions, and pineapple. Chicken can be substituted for the shrimp or omit it to make the meal vegetarian. Just increase the amount of pineapple and vegetables. Shallots and chiles would also be nice additions. Here is a tutorial on how to make a pineapple boat for food presentation. I cut my pineapple completely in half to create two bowls for the table. To create one big boat, cut the pineapple just above the leaves.
Use rice that is at least a day old. Freshly cooked rice has too much moisture. It will clump and tends to become mushy. I use a large wok over high heat. This meal comes together quickly with the heat, so have all the vegetables prepped ahead of time.
