Pineapple Rice

Adapted from Liss’s Hot Mess from HaveRecipe-WillCook

6 cups cooked and cooled long grain white rice

¼ cup of vegetable oil (use an unflavored oil for best results)

¼ cup minced ginger

½ cup minced red onion

4 scallions finely chopped, separate the white and green portions

1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed through a garlic press

1 14oz can crushed pineapple

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon fish sauce

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

juice of one lime

Heat oil in a large pan.  Add the ginger, red onion, white portion of the scallions and jalapeno and cook until softened slightly, about 3 minutes.  Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.  Add the pineapple, salt, sesame oil and fish sauce and stir until combined.  Mix in the rice and cook until the rice is coated with oil and heated through.  Stir in the cilantro and lime juice.  Garnish with green tops from the scallions and serve.
