    • 500 grams prawns, peeled
    • 4 slices bacon, rind and fat removed, chopped
    • 2 onions, finely sliced
    • 6 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 inch piece of ginger, minced or grated
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 cups pineapple pieces
    • 1 red capsicum, diced
    • 1/2 cup peas
    • 1/2 cup carrot, diced
    • 1 head of cauliflower, chopped in food processor until resembles rice
    • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2-3 tablespoons coconut oil or olive oil
    • juice of 1/2 a lime
    • salt and pepper


    1. Add enough coconut butter or olive oil to a large frypan and cook bacon until crisp. Remove and set aside. Leave remaining oil in pan.
    2. Add sliced onion and cook until translucent. Add in half the garlic and all of the ginger. Cook for a further minute or so. Feel free to add a little more oil at this stage if the pan is a little dry. Remove and set aside
    3. Crack eggs into the pan and scramble until almost cooked. Stir in the capsicum, pineapple, peas and carrots and cauliflower rice.
    4. Add soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste and the prepared onion and garlic mix. Combine everything well. Cook until the cauliflower is cooked through.
    5. Add bacon once cooked and stir through. Remove prepared rice and set aside.
    6. Add enough coconut butter or olive oil over a high heat in the same pan to sauté the prawns. Once hot, add the other half of the garlic and cook for a couple of minutes stirring all the time.
    7. Once garlic is cooked, add lime juice and prawns. Cook until they are pink and opaque. Don’t overcook or they will go rubbery.
    8. Serve with the prepared cauliflower rice and garnish with fresh cilantro.
