Sun Basket is proud to source the organic ingredients indicated below. On the rare occasion we are unable to meet our organic promise, we'll put a note in your bag.
  • 10 ounces organic cauliflower “rice”
  • Shrimp options:
  • 10 ounces wild Gulf shrimp
  • 10 ounces wild tail-on jumbo shrimp
  • 1 organic yellow onion
  • 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh Thai or Italian basil
  • 1½ cups diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 3 ounces organic baby spinach or other leafy greens
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut

Chef's Tip

The optional white wine adds a touch of acid to the sauce, but if you don’t have any on hand or prefer not to cook with it, water is just as effective at helping to release any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

Ingredient IQ

Thai basil, which has a light purple stem, has a stronger aroma and slightly sweeter taste than its Mediterranean counterpart. You may detect stronger hints of anise and mint as well.

Wash produce before use


Cook the cauliflower “rice”

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the cauliflower “rice,” season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower starts to soften, 3 to 5 minutes [4 to 6 min]. Transfer to a medium bowl and, if desired, tent with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.
While the cauliflower “rice” cooks, prepare the shrimp and onion.


Prep the shrimp and onion; cook the shrimp

  • Rinse the shrimp, then drain on a paper-towel-lined plate and pat dry. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
In the same pan used for the cauliflower, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.


Make the tomato-coconut sauce

  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In the same pan used for the shrimp, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent and starts to caramelize, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in ¼ cup [½ cup] white wine (from your pantry) or water and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the tomatoes and coconut milk and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes.
Return the shrimp to the pan; working in batches if needed, stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted and the shrimp are warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the basil, and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the cauliflower “rice” to individual bowls and top with the shrimp and tomato-coconut sauce. Garnish with the shredded coconut and serve.
