Crispy rice:

  1. Start by cooking the rice according to package instructions. When finished cooking, let cool.

  3. Remove the rice from the fridge and pull it up gently with the plastic wrap. Cut it into 8 even squares.
  4. Heat a medium skillet on medium high, adding in the coconut oil. Cook each piece of rice on both sides for about 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside.

Shrimp salad:
