Delicious Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe

I don’t eat red meat or pork and sometimes dinner can become boring with just poultry and seafood all of the time, so I’m always on the search for new recipes to keep our meals interesting yet delicious. I found a recipe for Shrimp & Pineapple Fried Rice on Taste of Home and doctored it up to my liking. I made it a few weeks ago and it was delicious. Since I’m planning on making it again this week I thought I would share the recipe with you guys so here goes.
