Ingredients

  • 8 slices Bacon, diced
  • 1/2 Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 3 teaspoon Ginger, minced (or ginger paste)
  • 1 pound Large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3 Cups Steamed Cauliflower Rice
  • 2 Large Eggs, scrambled
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce or Coconut Aminos
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sesame oil
  • 3 Scallions, thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp.
  • Reduce heat to medium, add in onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add in the garlic and ginger, saute for one minute more.
  • Push bacon and onion mixture to one side of the pan, and add shrimp to the skillet.
  • Cook shrimp on both sides until thoroughly cooked.
  • Add in steamed cauliflower rice, scrambled eggs, soy sauce, sesame oil and scallions. Toss to combine, and serve.

Notes

  • For the nutrition calculations of the recipe, I used 1/2 cup of onion, thick sliced bacon (wright brand), and large shrimp. Also, I assumed 3 tablespoons of bacon grease remained in the pan.
  • For the steamed cauliflower rice, you can use already riced cauliflower in the frozen section (my favorite), or you can use my recipe that I have here.
  • I am a huge fan of the shortcut ingredient ginger paste.  You can find it in the produce section of most grocery stores.
