Pineapple and Turmeric Cauliflower Rice with Salmon | Reclaiming Yesterday

[I made this bright and healthy Pineapple and Turmeric Cauliflower Rice with Salmon for Earth Fare! It’s delish, and it happens to be Paleo and Whole30 too ๐Ÿ˜ƒ]

Sometimes you realize you’re in the middle of a huge food trend and you think, “what’s going to replace this?”

Honestly, I can’t imagine something replacing cauliflower rice!

And now, thanks to modern convenience and bags of frozen cauliflower rice, it’s easier than ever to eat healthy. And that’s awesome.

Cauliflower Rice is Easy Peasy These Days

I remember back in the day when I used to make riced cauliflower by sending chopped cauliflower florets through my food processor. 

Not that it was so difficult to do that, but now that it comes already riced and ready to go, I’m that much more likely to whip it up. 

Plain riced cauliflower cooked in olive oil with just a little salt and garlic powder is great, but lately I’ve been loving this colorful variety made with pineapple and turmeric.

Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and gives the rice such a great color.

I love this version sauted up with some onion, ghee or coconut oil, sweet pineapple, and a few pepitas (pumpkin seeds) for crunch. 

Finish it off with a little fresh parsley and a squeeze of lime and you’re golden. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Adding Salmon to Make it a Meal

The turmeric cauliflower rice is the perfect bed for a gorgeous piece of wild-caught salmon.

Since I used canned pineapple in this recipe, I let the salmon marinate for a bit in the juice from the can. 

It picks up a little bit of sweetness, and a sprinkle of chili powder adds some heat to balance everything out.

All you need now is a few slices of creamy avocado, some green onions, and a fork to dig in!

    • Hi Barbara! I can’t believe I forgot to add that step in! Sorry! You can add the pineapple chunks to the cauliflower rice when you add the pepitas and the parsley ๐Ÿ™‚
