To make the cauliflower rice: Remove the leaves from the cauliflower and break into florets. Rinse well and process in a food processor or grate using a box grater.
To make the fried eggs: Heat one tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat in a sauté pan. Carefully break the eggs into the pan and cook until the whites are golden and crispy at the edges and the yolk is cooked to your liking.
Melt coconut oil over high heat in a large skillet. Add shallots, garlic, zucchini, bell pepper and saute for about 3-5 minutes until the vegetables start to soften. Then add the shrimps and cook for another 2 minutes. Pour the cauliflower rice and cook for 3 more minutes.
Remove from heat, season with sea salt and pepper, and stir in chili, soy sprouts, and tamari sauce. Toss well.
Divide the cauliflower rice between four plates and squeeze lime juice on top. Serve each with a fried egg and garnish with fresh cilantro and almonds, as desired. Enjoy!
