Shrimp Pineapple Rice Casserole #SundaySupper

Pineapple rice with ginger cilantro & shrimp with just a hint of sweet & hot to tickle the palate! My kids love pineapple rice & order it every time we go to a Thai restaurant! They just have to pass a Thai place and they will be asking for pineapple rice! Last week I had lunch at Sala Thai with a friend & took home a box of pineapple rice just to feed my kid! So when my Sunday supper team decided to do a casserole theme I decided to make pineapple rice. It would save me a stop at the Thai place when my kids wanted it and homemade is cheaper too! Looked up the recipe and added my own spin to it like I always do! I added some cumin and used coconut milk to the recipe. I used fresh pineapple but you can frozen or canned too! I added some peas to give it some extra fiber and add some veggies. I used basmati rice because I like using basmati rice and it has the lowest glycemic index of any kind of rice making it a healthy choice for diabetics and everyone.  I made it early this morning before leaving for a church event and when I came back home it had disappeared! Proof that it tastes good. I used shrimp as a meat but you can use any meat or just plain vegetarian pineapple rice would taste great too! I half cooked it stove top and then added rice and baked it casserole style! My first experiment making pineapple rice and I am sure I will be making it soon again!
