Paleo Broccoli Fried Rice


1. In a well-heated skillet, add 1 tbsp ghee. Sauté the riced broccoli with finely chopped garlic for 1 min. Season the riced broccoli with coconut aminos, toasted sesame oil, and coarse salt. Sauté for an additional 2 mins. The broccoli should be cooked until bright green color with some bite and not mushy.

2. Turn off the heat and while the broccoli rice is still warm grate roughly ½ tsp frozen ginger over the rice. Season with lime juice.

3. Garnish with scallions, cilantro, and sliced almonds. Serve with extra lime wedges on the side.

4. Optional: If serve with scallops and/or shrimp, pat them dry. Lightly season with black pepper and salt. Pan fry scallops with 2 tbsp ghee about 3 minutes per side over medium heat. Set aside over a plat, cover and keep warm. Use the same skillet and the remainder of the oil to pan fry shrimp until they curl up and turn pink color (about 2-3 mins). Serve the scallops and shrimp over broccoli fried rice.

It’s easier to grate frozen ginger and distribute it evenly over warm sautéed dishes. It adds immediate flavor pop. It’s similar to the concept of grating Parmesan cheese over cooked dishes.

Don’t have frozen ginger ready to use? Taste the broccoli fried rice first then decide if you want to add some fresh grated ginger.
