Even though my girls are back to school and the unofficial end to summer has occurred here, I am still enjoying grilling, eating and drinking outdoors. Why? Well, for starters it is still warm enough to do so here. Plus, I am always up for trying new recipes that can use our outdoor grill while we still can.
So, that is why I am so delighted to have the chance to cook, eat and drink, too. Right now, Coca-Cola® and ShopRite are not only giving all the opportunity to do just that but, they are also promoting the chance to win. How so? Just text CHEF to 26739. This text enters you for the chance to cook, eat and drink with award-winning chef and television personality Aarón Sánchez in the Coca-Cola Kitchen at the Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One.

Now, if I had the chance to cook, drink and eat to win, I have a great recipe that I would love to make. See recently; I was shopping at my local ShopRite. I loaded my shopping cart with all my favorites to make an Asian style, Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice. This was inspired by ShopRite’s recipe for Grilled Teriyaki Shrimp Skewers paired with Coca-Cola®.
Not only was I so very excited to give this recipe a try but, so was the lady who helped check me out. She actually asked me what I was planning on making with my ingredients. When I shared that I was making Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice, she literally asked me if she could have some!
Seriously, this recipe is that tasty and uses only the best ShopRite Ingredients. Plus, I was pairing it Coca-Cola. So, cooking, eating, and drinking never tasted better!
First, I prepared the shrimp and pineapple chunks. I love this shrimp is already peeled and deveined. Plus, the pineapple chunks are so juicy, too.
I placed both the shrimp and pineapple chunks in a large gallon ziplock bag. Then, I filled it with the teriyaki sauce. I sealed it closed and made sure the glaze marinated all inside the bag. Twenty minutes later, I placed the teriyaki marinated shrimp and pineapple on skewers. Then I grilled them for about 10 minutes on my pre-heated barbecue grill.
Once they were finished grilling, I came indoors to prepare the rice according to the package instructions.
Then, I heated some sesame oil in my Wok. I transferred the cooked rice to the Wok where I stirred in soy sauce to coat the rice. At this point, I slowly added in the shrimp and pineapple.
After all the ingredients were combined, I turned the heat off.
Finally, it was time to enjoy my Asian inspired Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice with my Coca-Cola, too!
