Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 2


  • 3 strips Whole30 Approved® bacon
  • 12 medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 2 cups cauliflower, riced (16 ounces)
  • ¾ cup pineapple tidbits, unsweetened
  • ¾ cup red bell pepper, diced
  • ½ cup Primal Kitchen No-Soy Island Teriyaki 
  • 3 stalks green onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. sesame seeds, toasted


  • Cut the bacon into ¼-inch strips using a sharp knife or clean kitchen scissors. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon pieces until crisp, about 3–5 minutes. Stir the bacon pieces frequently to prevent burning.
  • Remove the bacon from the skillet and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Add the shrimp to the skillet with about 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until the shrimp turns pink (don’t overcook). Remove shrimp from skillet and set aside.
  • Add cauliflower rice to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, for 3-4 minutes. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt. 
  • Add pineapple and red pepper to skillet with the cauliflower rice and cook for 2-3 minutes. 
  • Pour in teriyaki sauce and stir the veggies. Add the bacon and shrimp back into the skillet and cook for an additional minute. 
  • Remove skillet from the heat and sprinkle on green onions and sesame seeds. Enjoy!

A Few Teriyaki FAQs 

Can you stir fry frozen shrimp?

If you can’t make it to the store to stock up on fresh shrimp, you can stir fry frozen shrimp and still get all the flavor for this recipe. Be sure to defrost the shrimp ahead of time, or run them under water before frying.

How long does it take to stir fry shrimp?

How long it takes to stir fry shrimp varies, but if you’re using fresh shrimp over medium-high heat, expect to turn them after 2 minutes. A good rule of thumb is to wait until the shrimp appear pink. Be careful not to overcook!/p>

Is teriyaki sauce gluten-free?

Every teriyaki sauce formula is different, but Primal Kitchen No-Soy Island Teriyaki Sauce is certified gluten-free. Our teriyaki is made with organic coconut aminos, ginger, and pineapple, and without soy. Gluten-free folks can rejoice: our regular No-Soy Teriyaki Sauce is also Certified Gluten-Free.

Is teriyaki sauce vegan?

Not all teriyaki sauces are created equal. While many different brands of Teriyaki may not be vegan, you’ll notice the certification badge on our label. Primal Kitchen No-Soy Teriyaki Sauce is vegan (and Non-GMO Project Verified and USDA Organic, too).

The carb count will vary depending on the brand of Teriyaki Sauce you use (especially if you are dining out and order Teriyaki Chicken). Primal Kitchen No-Soy Island Teriyaki and No-Soy Teriyaki are Keto Certified, Whole30 Approved®, and Certified Paleo.
