This dish, commonly right in a pineapple in Thailand, is a great mix of sweet and savory with a hint of chilies to liven up the fresh shrimp dish.

Notes
Sprinkle some chicken or shredded pork over the rice to serve. This is how pineapple fried rice is being served in many of the local eateries and restaurants in Singapore, though I’m not sure if this is also the case in the place of origin as well.
